Expert at a Glance

Mikhail Kozlov, Ph.D. School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics

Dr. Kozlov is an expert on the physics of carbon nanotubes and their emerging applications in materials science.  He and team members at the Alan G. MacDiarmid NanoTech Institute have pioneered the use of carbon nanotubes for artificial muscles, supercapacitors and laser powered speakers that motionlessly produce audio by superheating air.

Kozlov’s team confirmed that nano speakers can both produce sound and silence sound, through noise cancelling technology.

He has more than 20 years of experience developing new materials for a variety of electronic applications, fuel cells, and other emerging areas of research, including photonic devices for the aerospace industry.
