Scientific Advisory Committee

A Scientific Advisory Committee, consisting of selected members of the Greek academic community, supports the efforts of the Hellenic Institute of Holography for the development of Holographic and Stereoscopic methods in Greece. Each member of this Committee comes with international scientific credentials in his own field of research activity and his honourable contribution to the respective area of applied science (e.g. optoelectronics, integral photography, nanotechnology, photopolymers etc) grants the scientific guidance of HiH applications. Brief CVs of each of the Committee members (in alphabetical order) can be found below:


John ANGELOPOULOS is director of the Laboratory of Networks and Telematic Applications at the Technological Institute of Piraeus where he also serves as professor in the Automation Engineering Department since 1989. He received the Dipl.-Ing. degree from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) in Electrical Engineering (1973), an MSc degree from Nottingham University (UK) in Automatic Control and a PhD degree from NTUA on Broadband Telecommunications. From 1977 to 1989 he worked at the R&D section of the Hellenic Aerospace and Telecommunication Industries where he was involved in the design and development of military switchboards, encryption equipment, fire control computers etc. as well as in various research projects in the fields of control and communications, an activity which he vigorously pursues under his current post with participation in numerous European and national programs in the areas of high-speed networks.

Panagiotis ARGITIS  is director of research at the Institute of Microelectronics (IMEL) of the National Center for Scientific Research 'Demokritos'   (NCSR "Demokritos"), responsible for research activities in Molecular electronics and Lithographic materials and processes for microsystems. Following his PhD degree in Chemistry from the Athens University in 1987, Mr. Argitis worked as post-doctoral researcher  in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Texas in Austin USA and since 1992 he is employed at the Institute of Microelectronics (IMEL) of the Greek NCSR "Demokritos" . His recent research activity focuses on the design and development of photopolymer materials for Micro/nanotechnology applications and in particular on the development of new resists for EUV and e-beam nanolithography.

Alkiviadis Konst. CEFALAS, director of research  at the National Hellenic Research Foundation (NHRF) and since 2006 acting as the Greek Representative in EU for Nanotechnology, heads the Short Light Wavelengths and Nano-applications Laboratory operating since 1973, one of the most reputable laboratories in Europe for the technology at 157nm. He received his degree in Physics in 1978 from the Athens University followed by post-graduate studies leading to M.Sc. and PhD in Laser Physics and Non Linear Optics from Manchester University. Author of more than 90 academic publications and with 96 scientific presentations in international conferences, his research focuses on active  materials and methods for nanotechnology using Laser light. Member of the Optical Society of America (OSA) and of the International Society on Optical Engineering (SPIE), he has participated in numerous European research programs since 1986. He participates in the Int'l Program of Post-graduate Studies of the Josef Stefan Institute in Ljubljana, Slovenia where he has put together the subject on Quantum Optics. On the editorial board of the scientific periodical 'Laser Chemistry;, Mr. Kefalas has been in charge of several specialized issues of various scientific publications with more recent that on 'Theoretical and Computational Nanotechnology: Special issue on Nanostructures, 2010.

Panagiotis PAPAGEORGAS, Proffesor at the Department of Electronics at the Technical Educational Institute of Piraeus, has been a key member of the scientific research group of the Opto-electronics Laboratory of the Department of Informatics & Telecommunications of the Athens University since 1994. He has participated in a large number of  research projects financed by national and European funds either as team member or chief researcher for the development of digital measurement, control and data acquisition based on embedded microcontrollers and PC's, of optoelectronic devices for analytical metrology, of laser endoscopes for medical applications and of 3D-imaging systems for integral photography.

Nikiforos  THEOFANOUS, professor of Electronics and Optoelectronics at the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications at the National  Kapodistria University of Athens (N.K.U.A ) since 1995, is in charge of the Optoelectronics Laboratory at NKUA. He has been active in the development of optoelectronic systems for applications in telecommunications, of lasers for medical uses, of systems for optical metrology and laser medical endoscopes. He has participated as coordinator or chief researcher in a large number of various research projects financed by national and European funds and more specifically for the development of methods and techniques in Applied optics for Telecommunications (Electro-Optical Modulation), for measurements of atmospheric parameters (Raman spectroscopy), for medical imaging systems (laser endoscope and optical tomography) as well as the development of 3D imaging systems.
