Main Directions of Research&Development


New generation regimes of fiber lasers:

  • tunable parametric generation,
  • continuous harmonics generation in poled fibers,
  • generation of high-power femtosecond pulses (dissipative solitons) in fiber cavities.

Raman fiber lasers and amplifiers:

  • mechanisms of spectral broadening and intensity fluctuations for laser output,
  • optical turbulence,
  • lasers with random distributed feedback based on Rayleigh scattering,
  • ultra-long lasers and new optical fiber communication systems on their base.

Interaction of light with micro- and nanostructures in optical fibers:

  • femtosecond modification and structuring of transparent optical materials,
  • random 1D and 2D structures and their applications in lasers and sensors,
  • fiber-integrated interferometers involving thin-film and 3D structures.


In the years 2014-2016 the laboratory staff works on the research grant of Russian Science Foundation № 14-22-00118 «Generation and nonlinear conversion of radiation in the scheme of Raman fiber laser with direct diode pumping of a high power". The main results are available here.

According to the decision of the Russian Science Foundation the project was prolonged as a successful one up to 2017-2018. The main results are available here.
