Vassilis M. Papadakis
Vassilis M. Papadakis is research associate at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas. He is the founder and head of the Bio NDT lab.
His main research interests are on applied physics and in particular in imaging and spectroscopic applications. He is interested in the characterization of bio-materials, ranging from DNA, proteins, live cells, and tissues.
He has a strong experience on the development of imaging spectroscopy instrumentation, including multi- and hyper- spectral imaging systems, and on the application of a wide range of techniques, including reflection and absorption spectral imaging, Raman and FTIR spectroscopy, and cavity ring-down spectroscopy. He has worked in the analysis of materials from Medicine, Biology, Cultural Heritage, Aerospace and others.

George Kenanakis is a Principal Researcher at the Institute of electronic structure and Laser (IESL), Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas (FORTH).
His main research interests range between applied physics and electromagnetism (focused in the electromagnetic wave propagation in composite media, with emphasis on metamaterials, photonic crystals and plasmonic structures), to chemical synthesis and characterization of metal oxide thin films and nanostructures (emphasized in the photocatalysis of organic pollutants in liquid and gas phase).
He has a strong experience in the analysis of thin films, nanostructures and metamaterials’ samples by means of microwave and FT-IR and Raman spectroscopy with emphasis on catalysis studies, dehydration kinetics, and in-situ measurements, along with electromagnetic shielding, energy harvesting, etc.
