Faculty: Distinguished Professor

MPHY 559 (main office)

MPHY B36 (aux. location)


Olga Kocharovskaya's research is focused on Quantum, Coherent and Nonlinear Optics, Quantum Information Science, Attosecond Physics and X-ray Optics. She made pioneering and seminal contributions on Electromagnetically Induced Transparency, Lasing Without Inversion and Coherent Control of the Nuclear Transitions. Before joying the Physics Department, TAMU in 1998, she hold the Leading Scientist position at the Institute of Applied Physics, RAS and the Adjunct Independent Researcher position at the Free University of Brussels. She is a Fellow of both American Physical Society (2005) and Optical Society of America (1997). She received the Distinguished Scientist Award of the Texas A&M University Chapter of Sigma Xi (2012), University Distinguished Professor Award (2011), Association of Former Students and Texas A&M University Distinguished Achievement Award in Research (2005), Willis Lamb Award for achievements in laser science and quantum electronics (1998) and Outstanding Young Professor of the Russian Federation Award of the Russian Academy of Science (1996).
