The mission of the Center for Photonic Science and Engineering is to promote a transfer of the innovative research and development in area of photonics into real sector of economics. The areas of nowadays R&D topics are stipulated by demands and strategies of our industrial partner, domestic and international. The administrative structure of the Center is designed to be able to react promptly on new social challenges and emerging scientific fundamental achievements. Center for Photonic Science and Engineering strategy is in building of full-scale chains from fundamental research to applications and hence distribute own activity between fundamental and applied research with reasonable partition.
In respond to the main national wide initiative, Center focuses on the R&D mostly in areas related to optical communication and signal processing: fiber optic communication systems, free space communication, optical distributed sensor systems, optical simulators and optical computers, atomic clock systems, key distributed systems etc. We see our niche in the creation of an ecosystem for design and production of Photonic Integrated Circuits that are of great demand for any photonic applications.
In addition to that, Center hosts cutting edge activities in area of bio-photonics, producing and applications of carbon nanotubes and other new materials, and developing algorithms for future computing.
|Professor Pavlos Lagoudakis is an expert in advanced spectroscopy, optical computing and exciton-polariton physics . He is known as a pioneer in the field of polaritonics with the first demonstration of polariton lasing at room temperature and the first demonstration of an ultra-fast all-optical room-temperature transistor. His main research focuses are at present the study of exotic polariton lattices, vortices and spinor states, with an aim towards applications in non-conventional computing.
|Professor Albert Nasibulin specializes in the aerosol synthesis of nanomaterials (nanoparticles, carbon nanotubes and tetrapods), investigation of their growth mechanism and their applications. At the moment his main recent research topic is devoted to transparent, flexible, stretchable and conductive single-walled CNT films and their applications.
|Assistant professor Yuriy Gladush is working in the field of optical properties of nanomaterials and its applications in fiber and integrated optics. His research background includes theory of nonlinear waves, excitation dynamics and optoelectronic response of semiconductors. In present time his research is focused on the application of the carbon nanotubes for the ultra-fast lasers and nonlinear wavelength conversion.
|Prof. Dmitry Gorin concentrates on the application of a combination of material science approaches, acoustic and photonic tools in biomedicine. He is a coauthor of pioneer works related to optoacoustic probe based on hollow core microstructured waveguide, ultrasound sensitive layer by layer capsules, multimodal contrast agents, photonic based gas- and liquid sensors etc. New types of multimodal contrast and theranostic agents, optics-based sensors, optoacoustic probes have been already elaborated.
|Assistant Prof. Sakellaris Mailis‘ expertise lies in the area of laser-matter interaction, optical waveguide fabrication and characterization, direct laser writing, ferroelectric domain engineering and nonlinear optics. In particular his research activity focuses on the laser-synthesis of two dimensional semiconductor materials, such as transition metal dichalcogenides, spanning from the dynamics of material growth through to materials characterization (optical and electrical) and device demonstration. Further subjects of research in his group include the development of photonic circuits based on nano-porous silicon as well as laser processing of the novel thin film lithium niobate photonic platform.
