Profile Summary

Dr., P.Eng. M. Skorobogatiy has graduated in 2001 from MIT with PhD in Physics and MSc in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science departments. He then worked at the MIT spin-off Omniguide Inc. on the development of hollow-core fibers for guidance of high-power mid-IR laser beams. He was hired by Polytechnique Montréal, Canada in 2003 and was awarded a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Micro and Nano Photonics and then a Tier 1 CRC in Ubiquitous THz Photonics in 2016. Thanks to the support of the CRC program, he pursued many high-risk exploratory projects in guided optics, and recently THz photonics, which have resulted in significant contributions in these two booming research fields. In 2012 he was awarded the rank of Professional Engineer by the Order of Engineers of Québec, Canada. In 2017 Dr. Skorobogatiy was elevated to the Fellow of the Optical Society of America for his pioneering contributions to the development of micro structured and photonic crystal multi-material fibers and their applications to light delivery, sensing, smart textiles and arts. Additionally, in 2017 he was elevated to the Senior member of the IEEE for his contributions to engineering and applied research. In 2021 he was elevated to the Fellow of the American Physical Society for his contribution to applied optics. Finally, in 2022 he was elevated to the Senior member of the SPIE. Prof. Skorobogatiy is also an author of two books on the subjects of photonic crystals and guided optics, as well as ten book chapter in materials science, smart textiles, biosensors, and terahertz technologies. He is also an author of more than 160 articles in the peer reviewed journals, as well as over 200 conference proceedings.
