Dr. Armen Gulian is the Senior Research Scientist and Director of Chapman University's Advanced Physics Laboratory, located in Burtonsville, Maryland. His scientific career began with a PhD and post-doctoral research on non-equilibrium phenomena in superconductors and superfluids with Nobel Laureate Vitaly Ginzburg.
Before setting up Advanced Physics Laboratory for Chapman, Dr. Gulian founded the Laboratory of High-Temperature Superconductivity at the Physics Research Institute, Armenia (overseeing the world's first observation of phase-slip centers in high-temperature superconductors). Dr. Gulian has also worked on development of quantum detectors at US Naval Research Laboratory, where he suggested a theoretical design and experimental demonstration of cryogenic detector prototypes for X-ray/UV single-photons.
Read Dr. Gulian's Curriculum Vitae and review his list of many publications, including prediction of "photon deficit" effect (important for development of electronic coolers); theory of superconducting quantum generators (potential application for terahertz radiation imaging and high-resolution acoustic imaging); prediction of interference current at hydrodynamic description of superconductivity (important for superconducting nano-wires).
