Dr. Bozovic is the Molecular Beam Epitaxy Group Leader at Brookhaven National Laboratory and an Adjunct Professor in the Chemistry Department at Yale University.
He is a leading expert in the field of atomic-layer-by-layer synthesis of oxide superconductors, including sophisticated heterostructures—thin films that include multiple layers with different chemical compositions. Using this technique, to which he has contributed many innovations, he has made several important discoveries, including high-temperature interface superconductivity and the giant proximity effect (the occurrence of superconductivity in a thick non-superconductor layer adjacent to a superconductor). Dr. Bozovic has received numerous awards, including the Bernd Matthias Prize for Materials Aspects of Superconductivity, the SPIE (International Society for Optical Engineering) Technology Award, and the M. Jaric Prize. He has also been elected a Member of the Academy of Europe and a Foreign (Honorary) Member of the Serbian Academy of Science and Arts.
Dr. Bozovic holds a PhD from the University of Belgrade in Serbia.
