Featured investigations Areas of Research: Optical and Microwave metasurfaces and metamaterials Metasurfaces are two-dimensional analogues of three-dimensional materials. Due to rich functionality, flat geometry and simplicity of fabrication, metasurfaces are extremely promising in various fields from photonic integrated circuits to biological sensors. All-dielectric nanophotonics Rapidly growing demands for powerful informational and computational capacities require conceptually new approaches of efficient information processing. One of those approaches is based on the replacing electrons by photons as the main information carriers. Advanced methods of Nanofabrication At our department the most advanced theoretical studies get an amazing chance to be implemented in a practice to benefit people. For example, using our laser systems we can print 2D- and 3D-dimensional nanoobjects Biophotonics Life sciences are one of the main driving forces of scientific progress. The ability to decode, control or image biosystems at different stages of their development can be a key to many problems in medicine or biology Topological Photonics Currently it is widely accepted that the concept of topological order allows one to explain the variety of phenomena in condensed matter physics on the single basis.. The Nobel Prize in Physics in 2016 has been awarded for theoretical discoveries of topological phase transitions and topological phases of matter. Nano-optomechanics Currently, optical manipulation has become widespread as in physics research and in biology and medicine since it is practically the only non-invasive method of controlled transport of live micro-objects. Metadevices for MRI Nowadays the technology of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provides one of the most informative and safe methods of non-invasive medical study. This technology rapidly develops towards improvement of the measured image quality. Under that we mean the increase of the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and resolution of scanners. The increase of the signal level and the reduction of noise hold the most important aim also in magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Wireless power transfer XXI century is the age of portable electronic devices. Smartphones, laptops and tablets have become an important part of human life. The processing power of the devices is continuously growing but mobility and autonomy requirements remain the same. Quantum nanophotonics The modern optical technologies gives an opportunity to detect and control light-matter interactions at the single photon level. The quantum nature of light requires proper description of these interactions, which is called quantum optics.
