  • Post-Doc // Development of dispersive mirrors in NIR and MIR ranges

    Since 60s, when the world has seen the first laser, the synthesis and production of multilayer dielectric coatings becomes to play an important role in the laser physics. A multilayer coating could provide much higher reflectivity in comparison to a pure metal mirror. Basing on successes in the multilayer coatings, laser physicists obtain shorter durations and higher intensities of pulses. One can notice that significant breakthroughs in the ultrafast physics in the past 20 years are associated with constitutive steps in the thin-­‐films optics. One of constitutive steps, namely, the invention of chirped mirrors makes possible accurate phase control and generation of single-­cycle optical pulse.
