Svetlana Vitusevich started to study transport phenomena in semiconductor device structures already at the Department of Radiophysics and Electronics, Kyiv State University, Kyiv, Ukraine. She received a Ph.D. degree in physics and mathematics from the Institute of Semiconductor Physics (ISP), National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (NASU), Kyiv, Ukraine, in 1991, and a Dr. Habilitation degree from the Supreme Attestation Commission of the Ukraine, Kyiv, Ukraine and Technical University of Dortmund, Germany, in 2006. After receiving her Ph.D. she designed and developed resonant-tunneling-diode high-frequency oscillator systems at ISP, NASU. From 1997 to 1999, she worked at the Institute of Thin Films and Interfaces (ISI), Forschungszentrum Jülich (FZJ), Jülich, Germany, as an Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow. Since 1999, she has been a Senior Scientific Researcher at the Institute of Biological Information Processing: Bioelectronics (IBI-3), (formerly ICS-8, PGI-8, IBN-2, ISG-2, and ISI), FZJ. She is the author of over 170 papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals. She holds ten patents. She is an active teacher at the Technical University of Dortmund, Germany. Prof. Vitusevich is the team leader of the “Electronic sensing” group. The main activity of the group is focusing on the development of semiconductor device technology, and studies of quantum effects and noise phenomena in nanowire field-effect transistors for biosensing applications.
