报告专家：Alexei Glebov, Ph. D. CEO and President OptiGrate Corp
Dr. Glebov has started his industrial career at Bell Laboratories in NJ and moved to Silicon Valley in the late 1990s. He worked for over a decade in various engineering and management positions with key optoelectronics manufacturers such as Finisar, Fujitsu, and Lucent Technologies. In 2008, Dr. Glebov was appointed CEO of OptiGrate Corp and moved to Orlando, Fl to lead the company to a greater success. Dr. Glebov’s experience ranges from advanced technology development to commercialization, new product introduction, and manufacturing of leading edge optoelectronic devices and systems. He received his Ph.D. and M.S. in Applied Physics from Georg-August University of Göttingen, Germany, and University of St. Petersburg, Russia, respectively. He has 35 US patents and more than 50 peer-reviewed journal publications and book chapters. He is a frequent invited lecturer, editor of numerous conference proceedings bands, conference and symposium chair, and executive organizing and program committee member at major professional photonics meetings and trade shows. Dr. Glebov is a Fellow of SPIE.
Owing to their fine spectral and angular filtering capability, a new type of optical components - volume Bragg gratings (VBG) - proved to be indispensable for numerous applications in optics and photonics. In the recent decade VBGs in photo-thermo-reflective (PTR) glass have found wide utilization in various applications, such as longitudinal and transverse mode selection in diode, fiber, and solid-state laser resonators, stretchers and compressors for picosecond and femtosecond lasers, mirrors for high brightness dense spectral beam combining, angular beam deflectors/magnifiers, and ultra-narrow line filters for Raman spectroscopy. In this presentation we will review recent progress in VBG technologies and demonstrate achievements in several areas of VBG applications such as ultra-low frequency (THz) Raman spectroscopy, high power narrow band diode lasers, ultra-short pulse lasers, and high power spectral beam combining. Also unique properties of VBGs enable recording of multiple elements in the same volume of recording material (volume multiplexing). In the presentation we will review a variety of novel optical components that can be created using this technology.
