Personal profile


After MS from the Physical Faculty of the Belarusian State University (1974-1975) I started the research with IR carbon dioxide lasers, liquid helium-temperature equipment and high magnetic field sources design. Among the most interesting results reported are the laser gettering of monocrystalline n-InSb and application of IR lasers for the formation of super-narrow periodic micro-structures on the metal film surface.
During the last years my scientific interests are oriented to the design and application of diffractive optical elements for biomedical applications, as well as to nondestructive characterization of solid surfaces by means of investigation of their refracting and scattering properties. 
Through the Marie Curie Fellowship at LZH, Germany I benefitted from working with international experts at laser micro-processing of polymers, plasmonic and biomaterial fabrication projects. This gave me an opportunity to work closely with laser microfabrication of biological objects in general and diffraction-based intraocular lenses in particular. 
Since 2013 I started cooperation with Aston Institute of Photonic Technologies, preparing and realizing research projects devoted to ophthalmic and biomedical devices design and fabrication by means of novel photonic technologies as two-photon polymerization and nanoimprinting.
