RECENT PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE:

Senior Development Engineer

Confidential, East Hanover, NJ

Responsibilities:

  • Provide design, development, construction and performance of high precision and extremely sensitive, unique optical setup for measurement of very low absorption (for bulk better than 1 ppm/cm; for HR and AR coatings better than 0.1 ppm) at CW, Q-switch and mode locked regimes; at different (UV, VIS and IR) wavelengths.
  • Has a high space resolution: 50 µm of transverse and 0.5 mm of longitudinal.
  • Comprehensive research and physical characterization of: laser crystals Nd:YVO4, Nd:YAG, Pr:YLF; Ti:Sapphire nonlinear crystals: LBO, b-BBO, CLBO; KTP; DKDP
  • Faraday Isolators TGG; CeF3; and also CaF2
  • AR coatings deposited on fused silica, BK7, sapphire substrates and LBO, CLBO and b - BBO nonlinear crystals have been done.
  • By PCI complete UVIGA (Ultraviolet Induced Green Absorption) has been investigated in LBO, CLBO and b-BBO nonlinear crystals. This allowed to improve the quality of crystal samples for production.
  • I have discovered the Photovoltaic Effect in LBO nonlinear crystals at 355 nm Q- switched regime.
  • I have built second multi-wavelength PCI setup for production and trained a person who explores it.
  • I have developed a dozen of new procedures and criteria for metrology of laser and nonlinear crystals which cannot be done any another existed technique.
  • Control by PCI of crystal quality helps to improve the performance of ones and understand the physical processes triggered by absorption/temperature change inside.
  • Detailed analysis of nature of refractive index change via absorption/temperature change inside of variety of crystals has been accomplished.
  • Employing home built Laser Calorimeter the thermo-loaded linear and nonlinear absorption in variety of laser crystals and nonlinear crystals has been evaluated at pulsed
  • 266nm, pulsed 355nm, CW/pulsed 532nm, Ti:Sapphire 730-950 nm, CW 1064nm
  • To detect the microscale bulk phase inhomogeneity inside the different crystals, 3D
  • Michelson Interferometer has been built.
