Integral methods in complex analysis and algebraic geometry

Krasnoyarsk Scientific School carrying out the multidimensional complex analyses was formed in 1965 under the direction of L. A. Aizenberg and A. P. Yuzhakov; the first one directed the integral representations for holomorphic functions and the second was at the head of the theory of multidimensional residues mentioned in the works of E. Martinelli and J.-P. Leray.

During the years of the school formation the basic principles of the theory of integral representations and deductions have been established, integrated methods were linked with algebraic and differential equations. These studies are reflected in monographs by L. A. Aizenberg and A. P. Yuzhakov; A. K. Tsikh; A. M. Kytmanov; N. N. Tarkhanov; L. S. Maergoiz.

Fundamental results were drawn in complex convexity, which were subsequently used and expanded to the developed theory in the monographs of Scandinavian mathematicians L. Hörmander; M. Andersson, M. Passare and R. Sigursson. The stability problem of two-dimensional digital recursive filters was also solved.

Scientific fields and research issues

It is widely known that one of the most popular of integral transformations — Fourier transform — plays an important role in the issue of showing the dualistic relations between the wave and the corpuscular theory of light. All the related integral transforms (by Laplace, Mellin, Cauchy and also much later Radon transform describing the principle of modern tomograph operating) have similar properties as, essentially, they are functionals in spaces of other functional objects defined on manifolds.

The effectiveness of integral transformations use is particularly evident within the complex analysis, where, due to the Cauchy-Poincare theorem, i. e. theory of residues, the possibility of exact or asymptotic computation of integrals is greatly enhanced. The theory of residues, which stands at the crossroads of complex analysis and algebraic geometry plays an important role in these maths fields and in their applications too: in the theory of commutative algebra duality, in the study of vector fields, differential and difference equations.

Traditionally, two approaches are mainly considered in the theory of multidimensional residues: homological (the theory of integration of closed differential forms over cycles) and stream-based (based on the integration of finite test forms).

Both approaches are based on two things: the first is the construction of residual nuclei issue, and the second is the issue of natural dual cycles to specified nuclei selection.

Laboratory for nonlinear optics and spectroscopy

Goals and Research Focus

  • Energy transfer and improving light harvesting for efficient biosolar energy production. Photosynthesis is might be the most important biological process on Earth. Directly or indirectly, photosynthesis provides many of mankind requirements such as food, building materials and the energy. The energy stored in natural resources like as petroleum, natural gas, coal and wood all came from the sun using photosynthesis. This is the reason why scientific research of photosynthesis is actually important. If we can understand and control the intricacies of the photosynthetic process, we can learn how to increase crop yields of food, fiber, wood, fuel, and so and fourth. The light-harvesting secrets of plants being adapted to artificial systems could provide even more efficient (compare with the natural) ways to collect and use solar energy. Recent researches show the crucial importance of collective molecular excitons in light-harvesting. In our research we study the first step of photosynthesis process, namely, so-called light-harvesting and energy transfer, making accent to nonlinear optics and spectroscopy and molecular excitons theory. Special attention currently paid to the role of vibronic effects in two-dimension optical Fourier Spectroscopy.
  • Nanoplasmonics. At the laboratory, we are doing the nonlinear refraction measurements using Z-scan setup. The Z-scan technique is often used for measuring the strength of the Kerr nonlinearity (i.e. the value of the nonlinear index n2, third order nonlinear susceptibility χ(3)) and nonlinear absorption of an optical material. The list of the samples under investigation using Z-scan technique includes: transparent crystal materials, glasses, liquid solutions, thin films, complex biological solutions and tissues, metamaterials, nanoparticles and quantum dots solutions etc. Nonlinear properties of new materials can be predicted using quantum chemistry analysis and verified by Z-scan measurements. This is important in searching for new media for lasing, all-optical switching, sensor protection and development of supercontinuum radiation sources. Also this technique allows determining the concentration of biological substances in blood.

    Technique description

    The sample of the material under investigation is moved through the focus of a laser beam, and the on-axis intensity is measured at some point behind the focus as a function of the sample position. At specific distance after the sample an aperture is placed to prevent some of the light from reaching the detector. The measured intensity is affected by the self-focusing (defocusing) effect. If the nonlinear index is positive, and the sample is placed behind the focus, self-focusing reduces the beam divergence and thus increases the detector signal. If the sample is moved to the left-hand side of the focus, the focus is moved to the left, and the stronger divergence after the focus decreases the detector signal. From the measured dependence of the detector signal on the sample position, it is possible to calculate the magnitude of the nonlinear index.

    Experimental setup

    Femtosecond oscillator (Tsunami, Spectra-Physics) is used as the laser radiation source. The main characteristics are: averaged power 0.8 W, central wavelength 720-960 nm, FWHM 10 nm, pulse duration 100 fs, repetition rate 80 MHz. The measurement is performed automatically using translation stage controlled by National Instruments PXI acquisition system. At every translation step the averaged intensity is measured by high-sensitivity silicon photodiode and stored. Then, nonlinear refractive index and absorption coefficient are extracted from experimental data.

    The directions of our research in nanoplasmonics
  • Optics of photonic-crystals. We study spectral and polarization properties of photonic crystals — metamaterials with dielectric permittivity varying periodically in space at a period permitting the Bragg diffraction of light. An important feature of photonic crystal is the localization of electromagnetic waves on the structural defect at the boundary or in the bulk. The defect consists of either metal-dielectric nanocomposite with giant optical response, or liquid crystal material with robust control by voltage. The defect layer may arrange a localized defect mode in the band gap of photonic crystal. Defect mode frequency and transmittance, as well as the shape and the size of the band gap can be effectively controlled by varying the geometric and structural parameters of the photonic crystal. New photonic crystal waveguides, nanoresonators with high Q and low threshold lasers may be created on the basis of controllable and resonant defect modes.
