Nikita M. Ryskin (M 03 – SM 10) received the Diploma, Ph.D., and D.Sc. degrees from Saratov State University (SSU), Saratov, Russia, in 1991, 1996, and 2005, respectively.
He is currently the Head of Vacuum Micro- and Nanoelectronics Laboratory, Saratov Branch of the Institute of Radio Engineering and Electronics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Saratov, Russia and a Professor with the Faculty of Nonlinear Processes, SSU.
Dr. Ryskin has co-authored more than 100 journal articles and conference papers and two textbooks. He conducted research on time-domain simulation of nonlinear and chaotic phenomena in various vacuum microwave electron devices (BWO, TWT, klystrons etc.). His current research interests include development of miniaturized sub-THz and THz vacuum tubes as well as theoretical study of nonlinear phenomena in gyrotrons and other microwave tubes. Prof. Ryskin served as an AP/ED/MTT/CPMT/NPSS Saratov Chapter Chair in 2004-2013. He has been a member of the IEEE EDS Vacuum Devices Technical Committee since 2015.
