Head of the Department of Optical Physics
Dr. Andrei Ivanov is a Head of the Department of Optical Physics and Modern Natural Science at the ITMO University. He received his degree as a Candidate of Physical and Mathematical Sciences in 2007. Dr. Ivanov’s main fields of interest are nano-photonics, nonlinear optics, and laser cooling of solids. His current research activities focus on multiphoton transitions in the bulk and on the surface of the semiconductors of different dimensions; pre-breakdown generation of free carriers in the insulators and semiconductors caused by the ultra-short pulse laser radiation; photon avalanche effect in the semiconductors and heterostructures, and dynamical Stark effect. His research at the ITMO University has been supported by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research and the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation. He is the member of the D. S. Rozhdestvensky Optical Society and the Optical Society of America (OSA).
