Yakovlev Named SPIE Fellow
COLLEGE STATION, Texas, Feb. 25, 2014 — Vladislav Yakovlev has been named an SPIE fellow for his achievements in optical instrumentation for biomedical engineering.
Yakovlev, a professor biomedical engineering at Texas A&M University, has made many significant contributions to the field of biomedical sensing and imaging. He has advanced the technology of ultrafast solid-state lasers, a valuable tool for multiphoton microscopy, imaging and sensing.
The first to adapt an optical pulse-shaping technique to improve the quality of multiphoton imaging, Yakovlev has also developed a simple approach for hyperspectral nonlinear Raman microspectroscopy and its applicability for deep-tissue, chemically specific imaging. Yakovlev has discovered a material for substantially improved sensitivity of high-frequency ultrasound detection as well.
Yakovlev earned his master’s degree in physics and his Ph.D. in quantum electronics from Moscow State University. His work has been published in industry journals such as Biomedical Optics
and Optical Engineering
SPIE’s annual appointment of fellows acknowledges members for their outstanding technical contributions and service to the organization and the general optics community.
