Invited talk
Design of thermal protection systems for different applications

Valery Shklover
ETH, Switzerland

Valery Shklover completed both undergraduate and graduate studies in engineering of materials for electronics at Moscow Institute of Fine Chemical Technology in 1971. He earned his PhD (in Russia candidate) in physical chemistry from Nesmeyanov-Institute of Organo-Element Compounds of the Russian Academy of Sciences in 1974 and made his second dissertation (in Russia doctor) in 1981. In Russia, under his supervision, six dissertations were prepared on the structural investigation of materials with important electro-physical properties, such as organic lectrooptical materials and organic semiconductors, as well as reactivity of solids and chemical reactions under control of crystal lattice, for example topochemical polymerization of diacetylenes carrying free radicals.

Since 1989 he is working in Switzerland, first at the University of Bern on structure correlation approach, than at the ETH Zurich on the Energy Harvesting and Storage projects for the Swiss Office of Energy with the stress on dye-sensitized solar cells.

After 1991 he is senior scientist and Industry Solutions group head at the Laboratory of Crystallography of the Department of Materials of the ETH Zurich. In this time he was manager of several industry-oriented projects, such application of Yttria-Stabilized Zirconia based thermal protection coatings and new bond-coat materials for gas turbines (projects ETH-ABB and ETH- Alstom) and hard wear-resistant coatings with managed thermal conductivity (projects ETH- Oerlikon Balzers).

In 2011 Dr. Valery Shklover has started to work on design and simulation of photonic protective coatings and spectrum splitting for solar photovoltaics. After 2015 Valery Shklover is project coordinator at the Institute of Electromagnetic Fields of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of the ETH Zurich, where he is concentrating on the ETH-NASA projects on protection coatings for atmospheric re-entry. He was also supervisor of two PhD works on photonic thermal protective coatings for atmospheric re-entry (his PhD student got ETH medal) and on solar absorbers.

The main scientific interests of Dr. Valery Shklover comprise thermal protective coatings, thermal conductivity modeling, heat transfer, solid-state chemistry, thin films fabrication and properties, fiber materials, photonics, application of correlation function approach to determination materials properties, texture, metamaterials, nanostructures, porous materials, sensors. V. Shklover is author of more than 400 peer-reviewed publications, he owns 9 patents.
