Spectroscopic techniques for isotope separation
Quantitative multiple-laser state-resolved spectroscopy of Water molecule.
1994-currently Laboratory of Molecular Chemical Physics, Department of Chemistry, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. Since 2004 – lecturing a master course (Lasers and their applications in chemistry). Since 2007 – senior research scientist. Since 2012 – head of the group 2D UV-MS of biomolecules.
1992-93 Department of Chemistry, University of Rochester, Rochester, NY, USA. Research with Prof. T.R. Rizzo
Overtone spectroscopy of polyatomic molecules. IRLAPS detection technique was used for vibrational overtone spectroscopy of jet-cooled molecules.
1986-92 Research Centre for Technological Lasers of USSR Academy of Science, Moscow, Russia. Ph.D. research with Prof. V.N. Bagratashvili.
Infrared absorption spectroscopy of vibrationally excited polyatomic molecules. An original infrared photodissociation technique was used for measuring infrared absorption spectra of jet-cooled molecules, first vibrationally excited via IR multiphoton absorption. Photoionization TOF MS detection technique was employed.
Measument and control of velocity distribution of particles, created in a process of laser ablation of superconductive ceramic. LIF detection technique was used.
