Alexandra Alexandrova studied physics and engineering at the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI in Moscow, Russia, from 2006 to 2012. Her speciality is condensed matter physics with laser physics as major subject. She has experience with laser interferometers and different laser systems for ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor). She participated in developing the photonic Doppler Velocimeter for measurement of the fast processes in matter.
Alexandra has worked on her individual project within the LA³NET network since September 2012. While working on the development of a laser velocimeter she has extended her knowledge in accelerator physics, laser interferometers, scattering, physical optics, signal processing, and beam instrumentation.
