Leonid B. Glebov earned his Ph.D. in Physics (major in Optics) from State Optical Institute (SOI), Leningrad, Russia in 1976. He was affiliated with this institute until 1995. During which time he held various positions in research and scientific management. After his tenure at SOI, Glebov joined the University of Central Florida School of Optics/CREOL. He has published one book, 190+ papers in scientific journals and holds more than 16 patents (15+ Russian and 1 US). He is a member of Organizing and Program Committees for a number of International Conferences. The main directions of his research are optical properties of glasses, photosensitive glasses for hologram recording, nonlinear phenomena including laser-induced damage, holographic optical elements.
