Shutov is a PhD student at Texas A&M University (USA) in a group led by Dr. Marlan O. Scully. Before beginning work on his PhD, he completed both bachelor’s and master’s programs at Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology in Russia, with specialization in aircrafts strength. As a part of his doctoral work, he investigates new methods for improving coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering by nanoparticles and designs ultrafast lasers systems. He is currently an intern at the Russian Quantum Center, working in Dr. Alexey M. Zheltikov’s group on a novel approach to production of THz radiation by using a sub-TW mid-infrared laser system.

The Society awarded $298,000 in education scholarships to 84 outstanding SPIE student members, based on their potential contribution to optics and photonics, or a related discipline. Award-winning applicants were evaluated, selected and approved by the SPIE Scholarship Committee, Chaired by SPIE volunteer Jeremy Bos.

Through 2018, SPIE has distributed $6 million dollars in individual scholarships. This ambitious effort reflects the Society’s commitment to education and to the next generation of optical scientists and engineers around the world.

SPIE is the international society for optics and photonics, an educational not-for-profit organization founded in 1955 to advance light-based science, engineering, and technology. The Society serves 257,000 constituents from 173 countries, offering conferences and their published proceedings, continuing education, books, journals, and the SPIE Digital Library. In 2018, SPIE provided more than $4 million in community support including scholarships and awards, outreach and advocacy programs, travel grants, public policy, and educational resources. www.spie.org.
