About the Editors

Michel Houssa earned his master's and PhD in physics at the University of Liege, Belgium. He is presently a professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Leuven, Belgium. His current research focuses on the first principles modeling of various materials, including semiconductor/oxide interfaces and two-dimensional materials (silicene, germanene, and transition metal dichalcogenides), and their heterostructures. He has authored or co-authored nearly 350 publications, given about 50 invited talks and seminars, and been co-organiser of several international symposia and conferences. He is an Electrochemical Society fellow and an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers senior member.

Athanasios Dimoulas earned his PhD in applied physics at the University of Crete, Greece. He is currently the research director and head of the Epitaxy and Surface Science Laboratory at the National Center for Scientific Research "Demokritos," Athens, Greece. He has coordinated several European-funded projects in advanced CMOS and received the European Research Council-funded SMARTGATE - "Smart Gates for theGreen' Transistor" Advanced Investigator Grant 2011 - "IDEAS." Widely published, Dr. Dimoulas has about 40 invited talks and has been active with several symposia, conferences, and committees as an organizer and chair. He has held fellowships at the University of Groningen, Holland; California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, USA; and University of Maryland, College Park, USA; and been a visiting research scientist at IBM Zurich Research Laboratory, Switzerland.

Alessandro Molle earned his PhD in materials science at the University of Genoa, Italy. He is presently a research scientist and group leader of the research line on low-dimensional materials and devices in the MDM Laboratory at the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche-Istituto per la Microelettronica e Microsistemi (CNR
