Current research activities include novel optical wave packets and light bullets, wavefront shaping and sensing, nonlinear interactions of ultra-short laser pulses with transparent media and laser microfabrication.
Dimitris Papazoglou holds a B.Sc. in Physics (1991), a MSc in Radio-Electronics (1995) and a PhD in “optical memories and information processing” (1998) from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. In 2000 he joined the laser applications group in IESL-FORTH investigating laser-mater interaction phenomena for ultra-short and short laser pulses with various materials making use of optical diagnostic methods. Concurrently, he was affiliated with the University of Crete as a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Physics Department teaching optics in undergraduate and graduate courses. In 2005, he joined the faculty of the Department of Materials Science and Technology of the University of Crete. He is also an affiliated researcher at IESL-FORTH where he carries out his research activities.Extended CV
