Simonas Varapnickas, born in 1989, received his BSc degree in physics and MSc degree in materials engineering from Vilnius University (Lithuania) in 2012 and 2017. His diploma thesis was based on investigation of femtosecond pulse induced polymerization properties of photosensitive nano-composites. In the meantime he worked as CSO and CTO at several laser technology companies. Currently he continues his research on hybrid fabrication of dielectrics via femtosecond laser pulses for micro- and nanooptical components in the group of Dr. M. Malinauskas at the Vilnius university Laser research center.
