Dr. Suskov received his Master’s Degree in Engineering Physics from Moscow Institute for Physics and Technology, Dolgoprudnyi, Russia and PhD in Physics from P.L.Kapitza Institute for Physical Problems of Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia. Andrei worked at Institute of Spectroscopy of Russian Academy of Sciences, Troitsk, Russia. Starting in 2000, he worked at SUNY Binghamton, NY, at University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and University of Maryland, College Park as a research faculty. In January 2018, Dr. Suskov joined GLAMR team.
Half of his career, Dr. Suskov worked with lasers (THz, CO2, HeNe, dye) and the other half worked with broadband Fourier transform spectroscopy (BOMEM and Bruker). He has more than 30 years of optical spectroscopic studies of high Tc superconductors, multiferroics, metamaterials, antiferromagnets, graphene, and topological insulators in forms of single crystals and films in THz to UV frequency range, in 2 – 1300 K temperature range, and in magnetic fields up to 8 T. Dr. Sushkov observed and studied with collaborators such phenomena as magnetic order folded phonons, magnetic order shifted electronic d-d transitions, spin-phonon coupling in frustrated magnets, electromagnons in multiferroics, optical signatures of 3D Dirac and Weyl semimetals. Dr. Sushkov brings his depth of physics background to the GLAMR project working on nonlinear laser optics in support of calibration of current and next generation earth science sensors.
