Igor V. Bondarev earned his M.S. (1989, Physics, with honors) and Ph.D. (1994, Theoretical Physics) degrees from the Belarusian State University in Minsk, Belarus. Dr. Bondarev earned his D.Sc. degree (2001, Theoretical Solid State Physics) from the National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Belarus in Minsk (the Doctor of Science in Physics and Mathematics is the habilitation degree awarded to less than one percent of active former Soviet Union scientists having Ph.D.s).
In 1989–2005, Dr. Bondarev worked in the Theoretical Physics Laboratory of the Institute for Nuclear Problems at the Belarusian State University (last occupied position: principal research associate/group leader). At the same time, as a visiting professor, he performed his research in Germany, France, Belgium, Italy, Poland, and Japan, supported by the DAAD (Germany), OSTC (Belgium), JSPS (Japan) and other highly competitive visiting professorship fellowships.
Dr. Bondarev has authored and co-authored over 250 research publications, including one US patent and five book chapters in collective monographs published by Nova Science, Taylor & Francis, CRC Press and American Scientific, USA. His major research accomplishments embrace the areas of theoretical solid-state physics, optical and atomic physics, including (i) confinement-induced nonlocal electromagnetic response theory for ultrathin transdimensional quantum materials (in collaboration with V.M. Shalaev, Purdue University, USA; theory verified and confirmed experimentally at both room and cryogenic temperatures), (ii) theory of excitonic complexes (trion, quaternion, biexciton) in quasi-two-dimensional van der Waals semiconductors (in collaboration with M.R. Vladimirova, University of Montpellier, France and D.W. Snoke, University of Pittsburgh, USA; theory confirmed experimentally for trions, quaternions and biexcitons individually), (iii) near-field quantum electrodynamics formalism development for atomically doped (in collaboration with Ph.Lambin, University of Namur, Belgium) and pristine carbon nanotube systems, (iv) effective quadrupole interactions and magnetic quenching anisotropy theory for the positronium atom in dielectric crystals (confirmed experimentally), (v) positronium self-trapping (in collaboration with T. Hyodo, University of Tokyo, Japan) and nonpolar phonon scattering theory in alkali halide crystals (confirmed experimentally for self-trapping, de-trapping and nonpolar optical scattering individually).
Dr. Bondarev has presented his research at over 40 invited seminars and at over 180 international symposia and conferences in research institutions in Europe, China, Japan, Australia, Mexico, the US and Canada. His professional achievements and service to the community have been recognized by the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics, UC Santa Barbara, USA (KITP Fellow 2022–2023 Recognition Award) and by the State of North Carolina (NC State Excellence in Service Certificate in recognition of 15 years of service, 2021). Dr. Bondarev is also the recipient of the Presidential Young Investigator Award (Minsk, Belarus, 1999–2001), the NCCU Office of Sponsored Research Award for Technology Innovations (2012), the NCCU College of Science and Technology Outstanding Faculty Research Award (2012, 2007), the NCCU Faculty Senate Award for Scholarly Achievements (2007) and research grant awards from the US National Science Foundation, the US Department of Energy and the US Army Research Office.
