Near-field dichroism of azo-polymers for optical switching and image storage

Sergey Kharintsev

Kazan Federal University

Sergey Kharintsev graduated from Kazan State University with a MS in Physics in 1996. He received his PhD in 1999 from Kazan State University (Russia), for solving inverse ill-posed problems in applied spectroscopy. In 2005, he joined the group of Prof. De G. With at the Eindhoven University of Technology (Netherlands) as a postdoctoral researcher (Quantitative Analysis with Nano Probes). Since 2011 up to now, Dr. Kharintsev S.S. is Associate Professor and Head of Nano-Optics Lab at the Institute of Physics of Kazan Federal University. His research focuses on enhanced spectroscopy, refractory plasmonics, organic photovoltaics and optical near-field memory.


Recent advances in improving information storage performance are inseparably linked with circumvention of fundamental constraints such as the supermagnetic limit in heat assisted magnetic recording, charge loss tolerance in... [ view full abstract ]
