11.04.2016 - My new single-author paper on one-dimensional condensates of photons was published in Physical Review A.

This paper introduces a quasiequilibrium one-dimensional Bose-Einstein condensation of photons trapped in a microtube.

Light modes with a cutoff frequenc...

19.02.2016 - We published a new paper in Nature's Scientific Reports, where we report making skyrmions 20 times more stable. 

Magnetic skyrmions are vortices of spins, considered to be topologically protected against perturbations, and envisaged as very possible next-ge...

01.04.2014 - My new single-author paper was published in Physical Review A.

By the date of publishing I am 24 years old. 

The paper considers Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) of light in a cavity with a medium.

I show the effect of gaseous medium on the cri...
