Dr. Andrey E. Mironov is a Post-Doctoral Research Associate at the Laboratory for Optical Physics and Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Dr. Mironov has more than 12 years of research experience in photonics, microfabrication and semiconductor fields. His Master’s thesis was focused on advanced Plasma-Enhanced CVD methods of carbon nanotube deposition. He received a National Award and Presidential Fellowship (Russia) for a perspective student research work in nanotechnology and nanomaterials for his MS thesis in 2010. Starting from 2012 his prime research areas have been laser spectroscopy, alkali lasers, and microplasma devices. In 2016 Dr. Mironov developed a new pumping mechanism for high power gaseous alkali lasers. In 2018 he developed and patented a novel photolithography technique utilizing flat microplasma lamps. Dr. Mironov holds 5 patents (3 other patents pending), 12 papers and over 25 conference talks in the plasma, microfabrication, and laser spectroscopy fields.
