Artem R. Oganov, Russian crystallographer, researcher. Recipient Outstanding Young Scientist award, European Union of Geophysical Society, 2003, President's award, Geological Society of London, 2002.


Oganov, Artem R. was born on March 3, 1975 in Moscow, Russia.


Master of Science in Crystallography, Moscow State University, 1997. Doctor of Philosophy in Crystallography, University of London, 2002.


Postdoctoral research fellow University College London, 2002—2003. Research scientist, lecturer Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich, since 2003. Research group leader Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich, since 2003.


  • Achievements include discovery of new mineral, the properties of which explain many of the mysteries of the D' layer (lowermost 200 km of the Earth's mantle). Obtained accurate mineral physics data that enabled the interpretation of seismic tomography in terms of temperature variations within the Earth. Detailed mineral physics research into Earth-forming systems, e.g.

    Al2O3-SiO2, MgO-CaO-SiO2.
