The S. R. Ovshinsky Award for 2005 was conferred in Sinaia, Romania, during the Second International Workshop on Amorphous and Nanostructured Chalcogenides ANC-2 (June 20-24, 2005),
The winner was Prof. Acad. Andrei Andriesh, from Chishinau, Moldova.
Prof. Andrei Andries is the Director of the Center of Optoelectronics of the Institute of Applied Physics of the Academy of sciences of Moldova Republic. He was born in October 24, 1933 in Chishinau, Moldova.
Prof. Andries is graduated from Moldova State University, Faculty of Physics (1956).
In the period 1959-1962 he was Ph. D. Student in the Physico-Technical Institute "A. F. Joffe" in Sankt-Petersburg (former Leningrad). He defended his Ph. D. thesis in 1962. Then he moved in Moldova Chishinau, and worked many years as research worker in the Institute of Applied Physics of the Moldavian Academy of Sciences.
