Yury Gladush

Yuriy Gladush is a senior research scientist in Laboratory of Nanomaterials of Skoltech. His main research area is optics and laser physics. In Nanomaterials lab Yuriy is responsible for projects related to optical applications of carbon nanotubes and other nanomaterials including fiber laser ultrashort pulse generation and SWCNT bolometer development.

Prior to Skoltech Yuriy was working in Institute of spectroscopy where his research was dedicated to resonance energy transfer in organic/inorganic semiconductor hybrid structures. His PhD, obtained in the same institute, was related to theoretical investigation of nonlinear wave phenomena in Bose-Einstein condensates and optics.

His teaching experience includes one-year Laser physics course in MIPT and various lectures on optics of nanomaterials in other courses in Skoltech. Since 2019/2020 academic year Yuriy reads 3 credit Laser Physics course in PQM program.
