Vsevolod Petrovich Redko (b. 24.01.1937, Shklov, Mogilev region), physicist. Corresponding Member of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (1996), Doctor of Physico-Mathematical Sciences (1985), Professor (1990).
Scientific works in the field of integrated optics. He performed a set of experimental studies on the development of the physical bases for the formation of planar optical waveguides. Developed new methods for forming waveguides from glasses by effusion, electrodiffusion, electrolysis. Developed methods for forming waveguides using high-frequency sputtering, diffusion, ion irradiation. He proposed and investigated a new class of planar optical waveguides, called homogeneous. Investigated waveguides, obtained in quartz glasses by irradiation with hydrogen, deuterium, helium, boron, nitrogen ions, S-waveguides in crystalline quartz, obtained by irradiation with helium ions. Developed the physical principles of construction and investigated the functionality of an acousto-optic waveguide convolver, a one-bit binary adder, an optoelectronic decoder on strip waveguides, etc. Performed basic research to create composite media and superstructures for optoelectronics with new optical and photoelectric properties.
Author of more than 140 scientific papers, incl. monographs, 26 inventions.
State Prize of the BSSR in 1984 for work in the field of integrated optics.
