Dr. Bülend Ortaç received the B. S. degree in Physics from the Karadeniz Technical University, Trabzon, Turkey, in 1997, M. S. degree in Teaching and Diffusion of Sciences and Technology from ENS Cachan University, Paris, France, in 2000, and Ph. D. degree in Optoelectronics from Rouen University, Rouen, France, in 2004 respectively. In Mach 2005, he joined the Institute of Applied Physics, Friedrich-Schiller University, Jena, Germany, as a Post-Doctoral Associate. Since November 2009, he has been working as a research assistant professor at Institute of Materials Science and Nanotechnology, Bilkent University.
He is the founder and principle investigator of the Laser Research Laboratory. His current research interests include the development of powerful fiber lasers in the continuous-wave regime to pulsed regime (ns, ps and fs) and the demonstration of laser systems for real world applications. He has published more than 100 research articles in major peer-reviewed scientific journals (over 50) and conferences (over 90) in the field of laser physics. Publications: Google Scholar
