Zouros Theo

Professor (retired)






113 Physics Bldg.


Ph.D. Physics Yale 1983, M.Phil Physics Yale 1979, M.Sc. Physics Yale 1976, B.S. Physics MIT 1974.


Post doctorate fellow: Yale (1983), HMI - Berlin (1984 - 1986), Kansas State University (1986 - 1990). Department of Physics, University of Crete: Assistant professor (1990 - 1996), Associate professor (1996 - 2013), Professor (2013 - present). Adjunct professor, Kansas State University, JR Macdonald Laboratory (2000 - present). In 2006 he was elected Fellow of the American Physical Society. He retired in 2018.

From 2013, his research continues in the field of accelerator-based atomic physics at the 5MV tandem accelerator at the Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics at the National Center for Scientific Research – Demokritos in Athens, where a beam line dedicated to atomic physics has been developed and a unit for the high resolution Auger spectroscopy of Projectile Ions has been setup funded through the program APAPES (http://apapes.physics.uoc.gr/ – ESPA 2007-2013).


Accelerator-based atomic physics, high resolution Auger electron spectroscopy of highly charged ions, electron scattering from highly charged ions, electron spectrometry of high-Z relativistic highly charged ions within the planned Stored Particle Atomic Research Collaboration (SPARC) at GSI-Darmstadt. The SPARC collaboration is organizing the SPARC 2015 international workshop in Fodele Crete 23-26/9/2015.

In 2011-2013 he organized the Erasmus IP CPOTS: Charged Particle Optics - Theory and Simulation, an intense two week summer school funded by the EU in Heraklion Crete.
