Biography

Dr. Konstantins Jefimovs received his PhD degree in Physics from University of Joensuu (Finland) in 2003. His main research field there was plasmonics and development of technologies for the fabrication of diffractive optical elements for scientific and commercial applications. In 2005 he moved to Paul Scherrer Institut, where he worked as a postdoc researcher on fabrication of focusing optics for x-ray microscopy applications. One of his achievements was the fabrication of Fresnel zone plates with record resolution achieved in scanning x-ray microscopy at that time. From 2007 to 2013 he was researcher at EMPA, where his main research was focused on fabrication technologies based on laser ablation and focused ion beam milling techniques. His main research interests were in the fields of x-ray optics, photonics, plasmonics and metamaterials, as well as the development of novel technologies for wide range of applications related to optics. In 2013 he re-joined PSI as a member of TOMCAT group, where his main focus is currently the development of methods for the fabrication of small pitch, large area gratings for phase contrast x-ray and neutron imaging applications.
