Abdulkarim Amirov
Research Area
Physics: Multiferroics, magnetic and magnetoelectric nanomaterials, multi (magneto-, elasto-, electro-) caloric effects, solid-state refrigeration.

Research Interests
Dr. Abdulkarim Amirov research interests are in applications of caloric effects for solid-state refrigeration and energy efficient technologies, development in new multicaloric materials (sandwiches, composites, ribbons, films), magnetoelectric core/shell nanostructures (MENs) for biomedicine applications.
Dr. Amirov have experience in magnetic, magnetoelectric (ME-effect and magnetocapacitance), magneto (electro) caloric (direct and indirect), thermal, dielectric, thansport measurements.
Dr. Amirov got skills in preparation of multiferroic composites (bulk, sandwiches, films) with other methods (cold pressure method, thick-film technology, magnetron sputtering).
Special interests of Dr. Amirov are related to the design and manufacture of experimental setups for magnetic, caloric and magnetoelectric measurements.

Biographical Sketch
In 2002 Dr. Amirov started his scientific carrier as student in Laboratory of Magnetism and Physics of Phase Transitions of Dagestan State University. In 2004 he got master diploma from Dagestan State University (DGU) and continued his carrier in Institute of Physics of Dagestan Scientific Center from engineer to research associate (2005-2017). At the same time, Dr. Amirov combined the research works with teaching of lab courses and consulting of master and magister diploma works of students on DGU. Dr. Amirov has defended his PhD. Thesis: "Magnetic properties and magnetoelectric coupling in Bi1-x(La,Nd)xFeO3 and xPbZr0.53Ti0.47O3-(1-x)Mn0.4Zn0.6Fe2O4 multiferroics" on Condensed matter physics at Institute of Physics of South Federal University (Rostov-na-Donu) in 2016. Recently, he joined Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University, Kaliningrad, Russia in 2017 as research associate where he is working on a project with core/shell multiferroics for biomedical applications.
