Abstract : Under this grant a number of new results were obtained by this principal investigator and his group in the field of nonlinear optics and quantum electronics: (1) Pioneering theoretical research on xray nonlinear optics, aimed to diversify coherent xray sources by means of nonlinear frequency transformations (mixing of xray and optical radiation, stimulated Raman scattering, etc.) (2) Theoretical research on phasematching optimization of largescale nonlinear frequency upconversion, with a potential to substantially improve the efficiency of this new source of short wavelength coherent radiation. (3) Theory of high harmonic generation in superdressed twolevel atoms. (4) Theory of modulation induced inhibition of dynamics and high order frequency mixing in twolevel atoms. (5) Brightblue 2 pisolitons in stimulated Raman scattering. (6) Pilot theoretical research on the subfemtosecond soliton formation and propagation, in particular, on subfemtosecond pulses in modelocked 2 pisolitons of the cascade stimulated Raman scattering, and the so called electromagnetic bubbles. (7) Experimental research on biological applications of nonlinear laser spectroscopy (twophoton induced fluorescence).
