A new scientific direction at the junction of Laser Physics, Optics and Quantum Radiophysics. Photonics solves the problems of classical electronics, using a stream of coherent photons instead of an electric current.
Photonics is electronics of the 21st century.
The Scientific and Methodological Coordinating University Centre "Photonics-MEPhI" was established as a structural subdivision of MEPhI by the order of the Minister of Education and Science of the Russian Federation on the basis of the international agreement "Fundamental and Applied Aspects of Photonics".
New fundamental results are related to
The Centre works on two International scientific projects, involving 23 employees and five institutes from four countries.
The work of the Centre is awarded by the medal of the European Photonics Association, the certificate of the International Scientific Society, and the diploma of UNESCO.
The lecture courses "Quantum Radiophysics" and "Coherent Photonics" were developed and read in the Russian and English languages. Upon the recommendation of the International Optical Commission a course of lectures was prepared and read at several foreign universities; in a collobaration with departments of MEPI and the RRC Kurchatov Institute created a monograph on the application of photonics methods in nuclear power: in cooperation with the University of Pennsylvania - USA was published first university textbook on coherent photonics.
Two meetings of rectors of Russian universities were held, several international scientific projects were carried out, the International Symposium "Coherent Effects in Optics", the International Conference "Optics in Life Sciences", the International Conference "Photonics Materials" were organized and held.
On behalf of the Ministry of Emergency Situations, expert reports were prepared and read at the meetings of the European Council in Strasbourg and the United Nations meeting in Geneva.
The Centre actively cooperates with international scientific and public organizations, such as:
|K. Dotsenko||Institute Director|
|N. Evtikhiev||Head of the Department, Prefect|
|A. Erko||Professor, Germany|
|A. Zarubin||Professor, Germany|
|Yu. Kulchin||Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences|
Alexander Ivanovich Larkin - Doctor of Physics and Mathematics, Professor of Experimental Physics, Professor of Laser Physics, Soros Professor, Full Member of IASH, Ambassador-Expert of the International Optical Commission.
