  • Achievements include a concept of triple-exponential fluorescence decay in non-ratiometric Calcium indicators as a result of polymolecular association and demonstration of its use for accurate free Ca2+ concentration and indicator dye dissociation constant measurements. Pioneer in resonant frequencies splitting in rotating Fabry-Perot cavity. High stability of the self-modulation frequency in the Monolithic Solid-State Ring Laser (SSRL), and first demonstration of SSRL potential as a new type of laser gyro.

    Correction of 50-yearold wave functions in Si, Ge, and III-V semiconductors, nonlinear wave coupling through the gain anisotropy is a key to dynamics in III-V semiconductor Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL), anisotrophy of the linear optical gain in the bulk III-V semiconductor crystal. Operator polynomial approach as alternative to the use of Wigner’ matrices in Physics. Model of 3D equivalent photonic crystal for 2D arrays of coupled microcavities.

    Coriolis-Zeeman effect in rotating photonic crystal. Concept of harmonic oscillator trap for Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) of photonic crystal exciton polaritons. Demonstration of a quantum imager for intensity correlated photons based on a monolithic array of single-photon avalanche diodes.
