Kotkov Andrey Aleksandrovich
The Russian Academy of Sciences
Kotkov Andrey Aleksandrovich received his MS degree from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) in 1982 and Ph.D. degree from the Lebedev Physics Institute (LPI) in 2000. His Ph.D. dissertation is devoted to experimental research on non-linear optical properties of laser media of high power CO2 and CO lasers. The study was carried out by the intracavity phase conjugation under degenerate four-wave mixing in both laser media itself. He has five patents and over 50 scientific publications in reputed journals. He has got the academic rank of associated professor on the laser physics from the Russian Academy of Sciences in 2004. He was awarded by N.G. Basov prize in 2006.
His research interest is non-linear optical properties of laser media of high power CO2 and CO lasers.
