Assoc. Prof. Dr. Cumhur Gökhan Ünlü is a faculty member at the Department of Biomedical Engineering, Pamukkale University Technology Faculty, in Turkey. He received his Master’s degree in Physics from Uludag University, where he focused on the Monte-Carlo simulation of a Co-60 radiotherapy device for cancer treatment in his thesis. During this time, he worked as a radiation physicist for 2 years, using linear accelerators for patient treatment at the Uludag University Medical Faculty Radiotherapy Center.
During his doctoral studies, he conducted research in the field of condensed matter physics, focusing on the production of magnetic nanoparticles using sol-gel and magnetron sputtering techniques.
He also studied on characterization technics to define the structural properties of these particles using X-ray diffraction (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), and the magnetic properties using the SQUID magnetometer method.
He spent 2 years as a visiting doctoral student/researcher at the Department of Physics at Duisburg-Essen University in Germany. In 2013, he established the Bio-Nano Materials Laboratory at Pamukkale University’s Department of Biomedical Engineering, where he started working on the production of graphene and graphene/nanoparticle structures for applications in the biomedical field (biosensors, magnetic hyperthermia, etc.) and in the energy field. He is currently involved as a researcher in several national and international projects on these topics. He has been working as a visiting researcher for a year at the Helmoltz Zentrum Dresden (HZDR) in Germany.
