Current research activities include nonlinear interactions of ultra-short laser pulses with transparent media, exotic optical waves and light bullets, wavefront sensing and manipulation.

Short Curriculum Vitae

Dimitris Papazoglou got his BSc in 1991, his MSc on Radio-Electronics in 1995 and his PhD in 1998 on "Photorefractive materials in optical information processing systems", from the Physics Department of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. He joined the laser applications group in IESL-FORTH in 2000 as a postdoc and later on was appointed application scientist in 2003 investigating laser-mater interaction phenomena for ultra-short and short laser pulses with various materials (metals, dielectrics, bio-materials) during the LIFT process (Laser Induced Forward Transfer) 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 as an affiliated senior member of the UNIS group.
