Dec 2017:
A PhD project on Photon manipulation in lithium niobate photonic nano-wires, arrays and circuits is currently open for applications. Special scholarships for outstanding Chinese candidates are available. The deadline is 22 January 2018. See more details here.

Dec 2016:
Thin film lithium niobate waveguides are proposed as high-purity heralded single photon sources in a ultra-compact and natively fibre-integrated setup. The corresponding paper has been published in Physical Review A.

Sep 2015:
A conceptually new platform for fibre-based adjustable second-order nonlinear frequency conversion and photon pair generation has been proposed. The corresponding paper has been published in the special issue of Photonics "Hybrid and Heterogeneous Technologies in Photonics Integrated Circuits"

Jul 2015:
New paper on spetral broadening in sub-wavelength graphene plasmonic waveguides has been published in the special issue of Photonics "New Frontiers in Plasmonics and Metamaterials"

Research interests

Current research activities include:
  • Graphene plasmonics and photonics
  • Nonlinear plasmonics
  • Microcavity exciton polaritons
And the usual suspects are:
  • Nonlinear waves, solitons, discrete breathers, vortices...
See more details in the research section...

Short Biography

I graduated from V. N. Karazin Kharkiv National University in 1998. I stayed there to do my PhD on the subject "Dynamics of nonlinear excitations in spatially modulated media with intrinsic structure," which I completed in 2002.

Later, I spent one year in the Linkoping University (Sweden) as a postdoc, and a couple of years in Max-Planck Institute for the Physics of complex Systems (Germany) as a guest scientist.

I came to Bath in 2006, when I joined the Centre for Photonics and Photonic Materials as a post-doc. In 2011 I was appointed to a lecturship in the Department of Physics.
