Laboratory conducts research in fields of:

  • Laser Physics
  • Photonics
  • Fiber optics
  • Radiophysics
    Pulse lasers in Laboratory of Photonics and fiber quantum optics

    Pulse lasers Coherent

  • Single photon sourses
  • Femtosecond lasers

The main goal of the investigation is to create a high quality sigle-photon source and it’s  further integration into  fiber networks. As a source of single-photon generation we aim to use femtosecond laser pulses and specially constructed highly nonlinear optical fibers.


Laboratory is equipped with a standard set of optomechanical, optical table with active pneumatic vibration isolating support system, spectrometers, photodetectors and basic sets of nonlinear optical fibers

The gem of the laboratory is a femtosecond laser generation system Mira Optima 900 with optical parametric generator. That allows one to generate pulses of high intensity with the duration being not more than 250 fs and power not less than 0.8W.

Resent work of the laboratory was presented at the conference “Coherent optics and optical spectroscopy”.
