The Science and Art of Ultrafast Laser Writing: Lecture on the 2018 Nobel Prize in Laser Physics
Formation of nano-structures in bulk transparent materials during irradiation with intense ultrashort light pulses remains a mystery. Nevertheless, the phenomenon has enabled unique applications ranging from printed flat optics to eternal data storage. The results presented in the talk would not be possible without the ground-breaking inventions of intense ultrashort light pulses generation and optical tweezers for which the 2018 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded.
Speaker: Professor Peter G. Kazansky studied physics in Moscow State University and received his PhD under the supervision of Nobel Laureate, for the invention of laser, A.M. Prokhorov. Professor Kazansky is leading the physical optics group in the Optoelectronics Research Centre at the University of Southampton pursuing his interests in new materials and ground-breaking optical phenomena. He discovered the fundamental constituent of the concept of 5D optical memory, which exhibits unprecedented durability and practically unlimited lifetime

He is a celebrated scientific author who has won many awards for his outstanding and imaginative scientific contributions, and is a Fellow of the Optical Society of America. Professor Kazansky is an advisor for the Arch Mission Foundation (https://archmission.org/), a non-profit corporation designed to continuously preserve and disseminate humanity’s most important knowledge across time and space.
