Current research

My current research is devoted to the development and application of digital holographic microscopy technique for living cells study, in particular investigation of its response on photodynamic treatment.  In this project I investigate morphological changes and intracellular mechanisms of cell death induced by singlet oxygen and other oxidative agents probucing in course of photodynamic treatment. Alongside with that I apply digital holography methods for investigation of some nonlinear optical effects, detection of strain elastic wave in sold waveguides, detection of singlet oxygen nonradiative relaxation. My scientific interests are: digital holographic tomography, wavefront propagation, nonlinear optics, biophotonics and spectroscopy.
