Profile Information

For over 3 decades, the Division of Laser Physics and Innovative Technologies of the NSU Research Department (until 2011, Laboratory of Laser Systems) has been actively and successfully working in research and development of novel science-intensive photonic systems and technologies, — lasers, optical amplifiers, opto-electronic devices, — for applications in physics, chemistry, biology, medicine and industry.
Scientific interests of the Division are traditionally related to the study of physical processes within and outside laser systems under the influence of laser radiation. They span laser physics (study of generation regimes in various systems), non-linear optics (non-linear transformation of radiation, super-continuum generation), photonics of fibre systems (research into fibre amplifiers and ultrashort-pulsed fibre lasers), nano-technologies, telecommunications, and other areas including inter-disciplinary research (nano-photonics, laser medicine, quantum metrology, &c). Research activities of the Division are supported both by grant funding (Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation) and by research and development contracts. The results of scientific activities at the Division are routinely presented at the largest international laser optics conferences, including CLEO-Europe, Photonics West, ICONO/LAT, ECOC, Laser Optics, and others. The Division has several very well equipped large optical benches and a considerable fleet of modern specialised control and measurement equipment, including multiple unique systems built in-house. All this equipment is in active use by senior students of the Physics Faculty of NSU in the course of their practical work. The core chairs of the Division are the NSU’s Chair of Quantum Optics and Chair of Quantum Electronics
