Victor Ivanovich Balykin (born 1 January 1947) is a Russian physicist whose main contributions are in the field of atom optics. He and his associates first demonstrated laser cooling of neutral atoms in 1981.

Biography[edit]

Balykin was born on January 1, 1947. He graduated from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and received his PhD in Institute for Spectroscopy under Vladilen Letokhov. V.I.B initiated a research team at Institute of Spectroscopy, involved in work on laser spectroscopy and quantum optics, in particular laser fluorescence detection of single atom, laser cooling and trapping of neutral atoms, atom optics, nanooptics and nanoplasmonics. In 1981 V.I.B. and his associates first demonstrated laser cooling of neutral atoms. From 1989 to 1990 he was a research fellow of Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics and Heidelberg University, Germany where he and his colleagues first demonstrated laser cooling of relativistic ion beam. From 1990 to 1993 V.I.B was senior researcher at University of Konstanz, Department of Physics, Germany. In 1996 - 1997 he held the position of professor of University of Electro-Communication, Department of Physics, Tokyo, Japan. Presently V.I.B is head of Laser Spectroscopy Laboratory, Institute for Spectroscopy, Russia.
