General information

Leading scientist's research interests: Development of fiber lasers and amplifiers, spectroscopy of rare-earth laser materials, research of photon-crystal materials, technologies of ultra-short-pulse lasers; semiconductor lasers and semiconductor disk lasers

Quote by the head of the laboratory: We want to achieve new quality instead of quantity ad we strive to solve key problems that lead to breakthrough results. At the same time we are trying to publish our works in journals with high impact factor even if the overall number of articles decreases.
