Sergey graduated with honors from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology in 2013. His Master thesis was devoted to the ultrafast laser frequency stabilization of diode laser for high precision spectroscopy of Rb atoms. Sergey worked in the Laboratory of Laser Spectroscopy of the Institute for Spectroscopy RAS for 3 years, where he acquired strong experimental skills in the optics, in particular in techniques of atomic spectroscopy and laser cooling.
Later, as a PhD student, Sergey joined a research group at the Molecular Spectroscopy Department, Institute for Spectroscopy RAS. There Sergey focused his research on the investigation of the upconversion mechanism in nanoparticles and its applications for advanced nanocomplexes. Sergey succesfully defended his PhD thesis in 2018 (December).
At the moment Dr. Sergey Alyatkin is working on exciton-polariton condensates lattices in inorganic microcavities in Hybrid Photonics Lab (CPQM).
