Head of Dept. of A. M. Prokhorov General Physics Institute RAS, was born in 1945, doctor of physics and mathematics, professor, academician of Russian Academy of Natural Sciences and Academy of Engineering Sciences, laureate of State prize of USSR (1982) and Russia (2001).

Apollonov V.V. is the leading specialist in the area of basic principles of creation and development of high power laser systems and high power radiation interaction with a matter. He has made an outstanding input into creation and development of new branches of science - physical and technical fundamentals of high intensity laser optics and adaptive optics, investigation of physical processes in a high volume self-controlled discharges, creation of high power continuous wave, pulsed and high repetition rate pulse-periodic laser systems, high intensity laser radiation interaction with matter, application of high power lasers for effective protection of valuable objects and water surface cleaning, medical applications. Recent results of his investigations of laser diode arrays phase-locking, mechanisms of shock waves merging for a rockets launch by high repetition rate pulse-periodic laser light and super long conductive channel based on dust plasma by ablation are under very intensive implementation in our country and abroad. He is the author of more than 600 publications and patents.

Apollonov V.V. is a high profile scientist and well known around all over the world, for more than 40 years of his international scientific activity, he has participated and organized more than 50 international conferences, symposiums and workshops, prepared more than 30 candidates and doctors of physics and mathematics. For the last 5 years his scientific group has fulfilled more than 60 R and D contracts with customers from Japan, UK, Germany, France, Singapore and USA. He is the General Director of “Energomashtechnika” Ltd.

Apollonov V.V. is the member of European and American Physical Society, SPIE, AIAA, American Society for QE and the member of specialized scientific council of Russia. He is a full member of RANS and AIS, laureate of State Prize of USSR (1982) and of Russia (2001).
