Laboratory of laser diagnostics of technical and living systems

The main directions:

  1. Theoretical study of the propagation of electromagnetic radiation in strongly scattering linear and nonlinear media with allowance for polarization and diffraction effects
  2. Development of new coherent optical, laser methods and measurement systems, monitoring and diagnostics of objects of technical and biological origin
  3. Development of speckle-correlation and spectral-polarization methods (speckle correlometry, coherent backscattering spectroscopy, low-coherence reflectometry, speckle spectroscopy using frequency-modulated laser radiation) for analysis of the structure of disordered mesoscopic media and nanomaterials based on polydisperse dielectric and semiconductor particles
  4. Development of the theory of the formation of the polarization and diffraction structure of speckle fields in cooperative radiation and light scattering
  5. Development of new methods and devices for diagnostics of parameters of optically inhomogeneous media, including biological tissues, based on the study of spectral, polarization and specular characteristics of objects. Methods for controlling the optical properties of multiple scattering media and biological tissues
  6. Investigation of transport properties of close-packed layers of nanoparticles of various dielectrics and wide-band semiconductors. For powder materials based on submicron titanium dioxide particles, the effect of an anomalous decrease in the localization parameter of electromagnetic waves near the edge of the fundamental absorption band (in the short-wavelength region of the visible spectrum)
  7. Development of biotechnology of selective destruction of cancer cells in animals and humans in the creation of vector conjugates of gold nanoshells and nanorods dynamically heated by nano- and microsecond laser pulses (jointly with the IBPFM RAS, Prof. Khlebtsov N.G.)
  8. Development of new technologies for controlling the optical characteristics of biological tissues – enlightenment due to optical immersion
  9. Development of coherent optical tomographs based on analysis of speckle-correlation fields of scattered radiation when probing with laser radiation with controlled frequency and coherence length
