Research Interests

Group of Lev Murokh performs theoretical studies of electrical and optical properties of nanoscale structures in close collaboration with experimental groups. Recently, it has been extended on living organisms including mitochondria and photosynthetic complexes, with the ultimate goal to employ the nature-created ideas in nanoelectronics.
