Personal history:

Without having own group and working on my own (since 2003 without any funding and working in my free time only), Scopus has recorded over 2600 citations in more than 2000 scientific papers since 1995 on my publications and assigns me an h-index of 31 [see a recent snapshot of my Scopus record]. Google Scholar counts over 3000 citations to my publications and assigns me the h-index of 36.

I'm a member of OSA

Special skills:

You can communicate with me in the Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Polish, Russian, Slovak, and Ukrainian languages.

My free-time research interests

Various subjects of theoretical physics, including general scattering theory, numerical solution of electromagnetic scattering problems, negative refractive index metamaterials, luminescence and scattering properties of small metal nanoparticles, affinity sensors, subwavelength nanoguides, surface plasmons, optical imaging of biotissues, quantum optics, light-matter interactions, theory of optical tweezers, and physics of photonic band-gap structures, or, photonic crystals. My work before 2001 has been summarized in the contribution Towards complete photonic band gap structures below infrared wavelengths to the Proceedings of the NATO ASI Photonic Crystals and Light Localization in the 21st Century, pp. pp. 373-382 (Kluwer, Amsterdam, 2001) and in the contribution K7.5, Photonic Crystals at Near-Infrared and Optical Wavelengths [pdf], in the Proceedings of the MRS Fall Meeting 2001 - vol. 708, BB symposium.

You will find more about why a periodic array of metal rods may be the best way to create narrow, high-frequency microwave signals for everything from satellites to cell phones in Lattice Sends a Crystal Clear Signal.
