This special issue is planned as a dedication to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Profs. Igor V. Minin and Oleg V. Minin and honor their contribution to the field of biophotonics. The issue will feature a collection of selected papers closely related to scientific interests of Profs. Minin and presenting state-of-the–art research in the field. Contributions of colleagues, collaborators and students of Profs. Minin are especially welcome.
Igor V. Minin and Oleg V. Minin were born on March 22, 1960. Igor and Oleg Minin graduated in 1976 with honors from high school and enrolled at the Physical Department of the Novosibirsk State University. They graduated from Novosibirsk State Technical University in 1982.
I.V. Minin defended his thesis for the degree of candidate of physics and mathematics on radiophysics, including quantum physics at St. Petersburg Electrotechnical Institute in 1986. O.V. Minin defended his thesis for the degree of candidate of physics and mathematics on radiophysics, including quantum physics in Tomsk Institute of Atmospheric Optics, in 1987.
In March 2004, I.V. Minin and O.V. Minin defended their doctoral thesis at the Novosibirsk State Technical University (on the same day) and received degrees of Doctor of Technical Sciences. In addition, they are members of the several editorial boards of scientific journals, experts of the Russian Science Foundation, Federal experts in scientific fields, experts of the COST 284, IASTED. I.V. Minin and O.V. Minin were awarded with medals of the Russian National Committee on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics named after H.A. Rakhmatulin, medals after V.I. Vernadsky, and A. Nobel. Their works were awarded by the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation (for the best scientific work during 1997-2000), Laser Focus World Magazine Diploma (2003), etc.
As up to date, I.V. Minin and O.V. Minin have 450 joint research publications, including 22 monographs (12 in Russian, 9 in English and 1 in Chinese) and more than 100 author's certificates and patents.
Their areas of expertise cover biophotonics, THz biomedical optics, structured near field light in optics, THz and acoustics, nano- and mesoscale photonics, and tweezers and nanoparticle manipulations.
The special issue will cover the following topics:
• Optical, magnetic and acoustical tweezers
• Light interaction with tissue and blood
• Optics of blood
• Optical and THz spectroscopy
• Skin optics
• Nanobiophotonics
• Laser and Acoustic micro- and nano- manipulations
• THz interaction with tissue and blood
• THz and laser measurement techniques
• THz subwavelength imaging of biological objects
