o    optical, thermo-optical and non-linear optical properties of bismuth tellurite (Bi2TeO5)

o    photosensitivity of the refractive index (i.e. the photorefractive effect) in some oxide crystals, using two-wave mixing setup

o    effect of double doping of LiNbO3 crystals on the photorefractive and photoconductive properties

o    charge transport processes during thermal fixing of photorefractive holograms

o    experimental monitoring of the soliton state distribution of four-wave mixing holographic gratings in thick crystals

o    studying the effect of neutron irradiation on photorefractive gratings recorded in LiNbO3:Fe

o    investigation of photorefractive gratings by phase contrast and interference microscopy

o    study of dopants to increase optical damage resistance of lithium niobate by z-scan technique

o    development of high-resolution ‘in-situ’ calibration for piezo scanning of diode laser by using a Fabry-Pérot interferometer

o    saturation spectroscopic experiments in lithium niobate (LiNbO3) and lithium yttrium orthoborate [Li6Y(BO3)3, LYB] single crystal and nanocrystals, doped with erbium or ytterbium

o    time-resolved luminescence studies in NaYF4:Tm,Yb nanocrystals and LYB:Tm,Yb single crystals, in order to apply them as single photon sources

o    participation in development of confocal microscope for single photon source, in development of diode laser, and in laser wavelength stabilization by using Pound-Drever-Hall (PDH) technique
