Dr. Sergey Vinogradov studied general physics at the Moscow State University and solid state physics at the Lebedev Physical Institute (LPI) of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Russia). His Ph.D. thesis was dedicated to the research of photoelectric processes in heterostructures with deep level trapping sites and development of photosensors with memory for on-chip analogue processing of optical information. Since 1992 he holds a position of a senior research scientist at the Solid State Physics Division of the LPI.

Last decade he was focused on R&D of so-called Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM) – a new emerging generation of limited Geiger-mode avalanche photodetectors with unique photon number resolving performance at room temperature. Being one of the key people in SiPM R&D collaboration between LPI and Amplification Technologies Inc., USA, he passed full cycle of innovation activity from basic physics studies to management, marketing, applications and customer support.

He was elected as a Senior Member of SPIE (International Society for Optics and Photonics) in 2012 and also as a Senior Member of IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) at the Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society in June 2015 for outstanding achievements in research, development, characterization, modelling, analysis, and applications of Silicon Photomultipliers.


Sergey Vinogradov has now left the QUASAR Group.
