«Control of characteristics of high-power terahertz laser beams by
methods of diffractive optics»

Vladimir Pavelyev is head of the Nanoengineering Department of Samara National Research University, Samara, Russia and a leading scientist of IPSI RAS – Branch of the FSRC “Crystallography and Photonics” Russian Academy of Sciences. His research is in the domain of micro-optics for infrared and terahertz ranges, functional micro- and nanostructures for photonics and sensors. He was awarded Ph.D. as well as Dr. of Science degrees from the Samara State Aerospace University (now - Samara National Research University).  In 2000-2002, V.S. Pavelyev was the co- principal investigator of the Russian-German project supported by the German foundation DLR (BMBF) and implemented by the fellows of IPSI RAS and the Institute of Applied Optics of the Friedrich Schiller University (Jena, Germany). He was actively involved in research projects supported by RSF and RFBR as a principal investigator. In 2017, he was a visiting faculty at JMI University (Central University), New Delhi, India (in the frame of MHRD GIAN Initiative). He has supervised three candidates (Ph.D.) on optics.  V.S. Pavelyev has published more than 150 scientific papers. He also published nine book chapters in reputed publishing houses. During his research career, he received the Russian President scholarship for conducting the research abroad; 1995-1996 (stay at Friedrich-Schiller University, Jena, Germany). He was also awarded with the Russian Federation State Prize for young scientists, 2003; Samara Governor Prize, 2021.

«Nanophotonic detection of tumor markers and micrometastases with conjugates of single-domaine antibodies and quantum dots»

Prof. Igor Nabiev is now directing nano-biotechnological developments in the Laboratory for Research in Nanoscience (Laboratorie de Recherche en Nanosciences, LRN-EA4682) in the University of Reims Champagne‐Ardenne, France. Since 2000, Prof. Nabiev has been developing the methods for synthesis semiconductor nanocrystals, functional modification of their surface, and their biomedical applications as fluorescent tags for ultrasensitive detection and biomedical diagnosis. He was the first European researcher to patent diagnostic systems based on nanocrystals conjugated with recognizing molecules. At present, Prof. Nabiev coordinates a number of national (French and Russian) and international (European Union) research programs on the development of ultrasensitive nano-biotechnological detection systems using solid-state and liquid-phase chips. He also supervises basic research and applied developments in nanosafety and nanomedicine. Prof. Nabiev is the director of European Technological Platform "Semiconductor Nanocrystals" in the framework of the NAMDIATREAM project (the Institute of Molecular Medicine of Trinity College Dublin, Ireland).


Prokhorov General Physics Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia
Head of Carbon Nanophotonics Laboratory

«Diamond nanothermometer»

Dr. Igor I. Vlasov is the head of the of Carbon Nanophotonics Laboratory at the Prokhorov General Physics Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Moscow, Russia). He is a recognized expert in the field of nanotechnology based on carbon materials. Dr. Vlasov is an active initiator of works on the bottom-up synthesis of doped nanodiamonds with controlled fluorescence properties, and their applications as quantum sensors and single photon emitters. Recently, under his leadership a nanodiamond heater-thermometer was developed to solve the problem of ultralocal thermodynamic control of biological processes in living cells and tissues. Dr. Vlasov has participated in many Russian and international research projects, most of which he led. He published over 200 scientific papers and contributed to several books.
