Oleg LUPAN, PhD, professor of the Department of Microelectronics and Biomedical Engineering, the Faculty of Computers, Informatics and Microelectronics, held, on August 1-September 1, 2019, a didactic-scientific internship as a visitor (visiting adjunct professor) at the largest University in the United States of America, University of Central Florida (UCF), an innovative TOP10 university in the US, according to the US News & World Report.

It was an internship at the UCF Physics Department, at the invitation of Prof. Lee CHOW, following an international CV-based competition, taking into account the list of patents and publications of the last 7 years, studies – bachelor’s degrees, PhD in science, international mobility, the ingenuity and originality of the scientific research project and of the activities for the period of the internship.

The scientific research was focused on the chemical synthesis of nanomaterials and nano-heterojunctions from semiconductor oxides for functional nanodevices. He also attended the preparation for the new year of studies of Prof. Lee CHOW, a member of the National Academy of Inventors of the USA, with an experience of over 35 years as a professor at the university department, teaching courses for different groups, including torrents of over 300 students, etc. Prof. Chow supported the scientific research at the Technical University of Moldova under the leadership of prof. Oleg LUPAN through letters of scientific collaboration in promoting projects no. 5833, 5989 and 6229 within the program “STCU & ASM: joint research and development initiatives”.

UCF is ranked among the top 600-800 universities in the world by Times Higher Education (THE), offering over 200 study programs for the approximately 70,000 students of: bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees (over 8,000 doctoral students). UCF was founded in 1963 as Florida Technological University, which has grown over time, broadening the spectrum of programs offered and becoming the University of Central Florida with over 2533 tenured professors. As a result of a fruitful collaboration in the field of scientific research between UTM and UCF, over 70 articles have been published in prestigious international journals.

During the internship, prof. Lupan also raised the requisites confirming the obtaining of the Patent on the manufacture of nanosensors from a single nanowire.

Proud of the achievements of the professor-colleague, prof. PhD, dr. Victor ȘONTEA, head of the Department of Microelectronics and Biomedical Engineering, stressed that prof. Oleg LUPAN, by collaborating with various international educational and scientific centers, contributes significantly to promoting the image of the Technical University of Moldova and national science abroad, and UTM students have the opportunity to accumulate profound knowledge in the field of nanotechnologies and to join the research team. international plan, under the leadership of distinguished professor Oleg LUPAN.
