Starting from 1991 he worked as a scientist in USA, Finland, Spain, Germany and in 1993 he was invited to the Optical Sciences Centre of Australia and later founded his own laboratory Nonlinear Physics Centre of ANU.

Starting from 2000 Yurii Kivshar worked in different fields of nonlinear optics and carried out research of solitons and metamaterials, nonlinear photonic crystal and composite materials theories.

He made fundamental impact into self-focusing effect, metamaterials, dielectric nanoantennas, topological insulators, optic signal processing and optic communications. He also discovered series of solitons and described their properties.

In 2010 Yurii Kivshar was invited to St. Petersburg, Russia in terms of government Megagrant program. He became a scientific leader of the International Research Centre for Nanophotonics and Metamaterials of the ITMO University (Saint-Petersburg, Russia).

Publications

Professor Kivshar authored and co-authored more than 850 papers. His h-index is 101. His work has generated over 38,000 citations.

Awards

Throughout his career he has received awards and has continued contributing to nonlinear optics and electrodynamics.
