General information

Leading scientist's research interests: Quantum optics, nanophotonics, classical optics, precision metrology, atomic spectroscopy

Quote by the head of the laboratory: Our research is devoted to extreme conditions in optics, quantum physics and elementary particle physics: generation and focusing high intensity radiation, overcoming limits of focusing, overcoming standard quantum limits and to creation of pairs of elementary particles in vacuum. Combination of all these complex and intriguing topics or a part of them promises better understanding of fundamental basics and proposing new original ideas as well as new opportunities for technological applications.
