Laboratory of Optical Radiation

General information

The laboratory tackles many advanced problems of optiсal physics including the interaction between narrow-band radiation and matter and obtaining a spontaneous narrow-band radiation in the optical range of wavelengths. The laboratory does research, design and development of portable and efficient equipment for generating narrow-band UV used for treating various skin conditions. Scientists of the laboratory design photochemical reactors that can be used both in laboratory and industrial conditions for generating high-power UV radiation. The laboratory creates high-power pulsed sources for quick-charging supercapacitors and gas discharge lasers. The laboratory scientists have gained experience in developing pulsed-power high-current electronic equipment.

Gas-discharge sources of UV radiation developed in the laboratory have a unique spectral composition of UV radiation. Typically, the emission spectrum includes one band, full width at half maximum of not more than 3 nm. The narrowband emission spectrum is achieved as a result of special mechanism of nucleation and decay of excimer molecules, accompanied by the emission of a quantum of light in the ultraviolet region of the spectrum, in the gas-discharge plasma in inert gas or in inert gas mixtures containing halogen. Such sources of radiation are called excimer lamps. The composition of the narrowband emission spectrum, prodiced by excimer lamps, is close to the spectrum of laser radiation. So excimer lamps can be used in those cases when radiation coherence and focus are not required. Excimer lamps can replace expensive and complex excimer lasers in dermatology, the semiconductor industry and photochemistry.

High-temperature plasma sources have long been used in medicine and industry (metal cutting, plasma treatment of the surface of materials, plasma scalpel). A source of low-temperature plasma jet, developed in the laboratory,   can be used in the treatment of festering wounds due to a rapid destruction of membranes of such pathogens such as Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, etc., without antibiotics. This piece of equipment can also be used for treating certain forms of dermatitis and quick and effective disinfection of medical instruments.

Equipment

The Laboratory of optical radiation has all the necessary equipment for research and development of gas-discharge sources of spontaneous radiation: gas control for pumping, heat treatment and filling of lamps flasks, hood ozone; high-temperature burner for lamp desoldering; power meters of ultraviolet radiation; spectral equipment operating in the range of 165-1000 nm; high-speed photodetector for registration of impulse forms of ultraviolet radiation. The Laboratory has two workstations, equipped with advanced soldering and test equipment for the development of power sources of spontaneous radiation.
