Dmitri Golberg has a wide background and strong command in the synthesis, electron microscopy, and physical property measurements of BN and other inorganic nanotubes. He was one of the first scientists to launch the BN nanotube experimental research in 1995.

Since then he became a world-recognized expert in this field and published more than 100 papers solely on this topic. He has also deeply studied shape memory alloys while working as a visiting researcher at the University of Tsukuba, and single crystals of intermetallic compounds while being a guest scientist at the Max-Planck-Institute fuer Eisenforschung, and the National Institute for Metals, Tsukuba. Such joined unprecedented experience in nanotubes and metallic alloys allows him to launch a new and promising interesting field of nanoscale studies: physics, chemistry and functional properties of inorganic nanotubes filled with metals.

Recently he became fully engaged in electromechanical property measurements of individual nanotubes and nanowires inside transmission electron microscope.

Golberg is author or co-author of more than 350 original papers in peer-reviewed International journals and over 100 patents. He has also authored book chapters. In 2005 Golberg was awarded the 16th Tsukuba Prize for the research achievements (Prof. Reona Ezaki, Nobel Prize winner is the chairman of the selection committee of the Award). His works have been cited more than 6300 times and H factor of his publications is 42.
