Prof. Dr. Dmitry Turchinovich


Dmitry Turchinovich studied physics and electrical engineering at St. Petersburg State Electrotechnical University and Ioffe Institute (RU), where he obtained his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Engineering and Technology in 1997 and 1999, respectively. From 1999 to 2001 he was a Gottlieb Daimler- und Karl Benz-Stiftung Fellow at the Institute of High Frequency Engineering, Technical University of Braunschweig (DE). Since 2001 Dmitry Turchinovich worked on his doctoral project at the Department of Molecular and Optical Physics, University of Freiburg (DE), where he obtained his PhD degree in 2004. From 2005 to 2006 he was a postdoc at Debye Institute, Utrecht University (NL). In 2006 Dmitry Turchinovich joined DTU Fotonik - Department of Photonics Engineering, Technical University of Denmark (DK), where he is currently an Associate Professor. Since 2012 his primary affiliation is with Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz (DE), where he is leading the research group on Ultrafast dynamics and Terahertz spectroscopy, a part of Department of Molecular Spectroscopy. The research interests of Dmitry Turchinovich include: ultrafast / terahertz dynamics in condensed matter, ultrafast nonlinear optics and all-optical signal processing, mode-locked fiber lasers, photonic crystal fibers, and supercontinuum.
