Fields of Interest

Research interests include coherent and laser spectroscopy of doped solids; nonlinear optics; color center physics; and solid state lasers. During the last years major research was concentrated on studying of laser media based on semiconductor materials with transition metals impurities. With colleagues, I received ”Snell Premium” of the Institute of Electrical Engineers of the United Kingdom in 2004 for the input in optoelectronics and development of mid-IR external cavity and microchip lasers.
