Sergey Tarasov is a specialist in optoelectronics and photonics. In 1998, he graduated with honors from ETU "LETI" among the first graduates of master's degree program "Electronics and Microelectronics" of the Faculty of Electronics. In the same year, he entered the postgraduate course of ETU "LETI" and defended his PhD thesis in physical and mathematical sciences on modeling characteristics and the creation of photosensitive devices in 2001. Later, he worked as an assistant, and, since 2004, he has been an associate professor at the Department of Micro- and Nanoelectronics. In 2016, after graduating from his doctoral studies at ETU "LETI," he defended his doctoral thesis on creating radiating and photoreceiving devices with given spectral characteristics. Since 2017, he is the Head of the Department of Quantum Electronics and Optoelectronic Devices, since 2018 - Department of Photonics.
