Prof. Peter G. Kazansky

Professor at the Optoelectronics Research Centre, University of Southampton, UK

Advancing the art of femtosecond laser writing

Peter G. Kazansky studied physics in Moscow State University and received Ph.D. under supervision of Nobel Laureate for the invention of laser A.M. Prokhorov from the General Physics Institute in 1985. He was awarded the Leninskii Komsomol Prize in 1989 for the pioneering work on "Circular photogalvanic effect in crystals". From 1989 to 1993 he led a group in the GPI, which unraveled the mystery of light-induced frequency doubling in glass. In 1992 he joined the ORC at the University of Southampton where since 2001 he is a professor pursuing his interests in new optical materials and phenomena. More recently he pioneered the field of ultrafast laser nanostructuring in glass leading to invention of “5D memory crystal,” which holds a Guinness world record for the most durable data storage medium. From 2014 he is also a director of the International Centre of Laser Technologies in Mendeleev University of Technical Technologies. He served as Vice-Chair of the Committee on Glasses for Optoelectronics of International Commission on Glass and is a Fellow of Optical Society of America.
