1) Pavel Mamyshev, Director, Advanced Technology Telecom at IPG Photonics, USA.
Fundamentals of nonlinear fiber optics and its applications for ultrashort laser pulse generation
Ph.D. in physics and mathematics in 1985 from Moscow Physical Technical Institute, Moscow, Russia. He has more than 20 years of experience in nonlinear fiber optics and high-speed optical data transmission. Previously, he was a researcher at Bell Laboratories, Lucent Technologies, working on high-capacity fiber optic transmission systems. Before joining Bell Labs in 1993, he was a Leading Research Fellow, Head of Nonlinear Fiber Optics group at General Physics Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow. He has made a few important discoveries, published more than 100 scientific papers, is a co-author of five books, and holds a number of patents in the field of high-speed optical data transmission. He was a lecturer, an invited speaker, and member of the program committees at numerous scientific conferences.
