During his doctoral research at the University of Marburg, Alexey Chernikov was already producing outstanding work in the area of low-dimensional semiconductor systems. As a postdoctoral researcher at Columbia University, he significantly advanced the highly topical field of two-dimensional solid bodies. Chernikov’s work has made a groundbreaking contribution to the current understanding of elementary optical stimulation and in particular the so-called excitons in atomically thin monolayers. His results have served as the basis for further experimental and theoretical work in this area, which he has been successfully helping to develop since 2016 as the leader of an Emmy Noether independent junior research group at the University of Regensburg.
