Biographical information

Dr. Mehmet Kanik has received his degree in Materials Science and Nanotechnology at Bilkent University. In his thesis, which was titled as “Nanostructured Materials and Devices for Energy Harvesting and Sensing Applications”, He developed a new phase change mechanism of polymer piezoelectric materials, which can drastically enhance performance of such materials. He showed proof of principle, high-performance, triboelectric and piezoelectric nanoelectronic devices such as artificial skin, nano-energy-generators, chemical sensors, anthropometric artificial hand, electro-cardiac sensors. In addition to those studies mentioned above, he contributed several researches related to development of photonic band gap fibers, photoconductive nanowires, chalcogenide micro-cavity resonator arrays, conductive composite nanostructures, fiber based microfluidic channels, artificial nose and core-shell nanostructures.
