Author Information

Professor Edik Rafailov has been engaged in the research and development of high-power cw and ultra-short pulse lasers, nonlinear and integrated optics since 1987. In 2005, he moved to Dundee University and established a new Photonics and Nanoscience group. He was previously a senior researcher at Ioffe Institute, St Petersburg, and a research fellow at the University of St Andrews. He has authored and co-authored over 250 articles in refereed journals and conference proceedings, and has co edited a book and four invited chapters, as well as invited talks at many conferences including CLEO, SPIE and IEEE. He also holds eight UK and two US patents. He is the coordinator of EU and UK EPSRC funded projects. His current research interests include novel high-power CW, short and ultrashort-pulse lasers, generation of UV/visible/IR and THz radiation, nano-structures, nonlinear optics and biophotonics.
