Profile Summary

Dr. Irakli Chaganava has graduated his full higher education at Georgian Technical University with honors as an organic chemist. Further, in the same university, he obtained a distinction for his Ph.D. Both diplomas are devoted to the study, development, and synthesis of new polarization-sensitive materials. For 17 years, he conducts scientific researches in Laboratory of Holographic Recording and Processing of Information in Institute of Cybernetics at the moment as a research scientist. At the same time, he is an associate professor at the Georgian State Teaching University of Physical Education and Sport, teaches medical- and biochemistry. In 2010, he found a light-induced effect known as vector polyphotochromism. Chaganava is an author of 39 research papers. His scientific interests are mainly within chemical physics and photonics: functional azocompounds, photoanisotropy, mechanism of Weigert effect, light manipulating and light adjustable polarization-sensitive organic materials.
