Crystals for Optical Quantum Memory

Marina Popova is Chief researcher and Head of the Fourier-Spectroscopy Laboratory in the Institute of Spectroscopy, Moscow. Her research interests include high-resolution spectroscopy, spectra of rare earths in crystals, spectroscopy of magnetic insulators, spectroscopy of multiferroics, phase transitions, hyperfine, interionic, electron-phonon interactions in crystals. At present, she is Leader of the joint Russian-Taiwanese project “Crystals for Quantum Memory”, of several projects supported by Russian science foundations.

Education: Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (Diploma with honors). The diploma work "Kinetics of the generation of a ruby ​​laser with a concentric resonator" (1964) was performed at the Luminescence Laboratory of the Lebedev Physical Institute, RAS, under the supervision of А.М. Leontovich. Postgraduate study at MIPT and Lebedev Institute.

PhD degree: The thesis "Dynamics of ruby ​​laser" (supervisors M.D. Galanin and A.M. Leontovich) defended at the Lebedev Physical Institute (1968).

Dr. Sci. degree: The thesis “High-resoluion Fourier spectroscopy in studying crystals with rare-earth ions” defended in the Institute of Spectroscopy, RAS (1992).

Professor in optics: 2001.

Employment: 1975 – present: the Institute of Spectroscopy, RAS

1968 – 1975 – the Latvian State University, the Problem Laboratory of Semiconductors. In 1969, she has assembled and launched the first laser in the Baltic States. The study of multiphoton absorption in alkali-halide crystals, the lecture course "Lasers".
