Andreas SARAKINOS acts as Scientific Director for the Hellenic Institute of Holography. Born in Corfu in 1955, he graduated from the Physics Department of the Physics and Mathematics School of the University of Athens in 1978. He speaks English and Greek. He has been working as a physics teacher in private secondary education since1981.

During 1981-1985 he worked in developing and constructing high-power laser subsystems and low noise data acquisition systems for the account of laboratories of the Institute of Theoretical and Physical Chemistry of the National Hellenic Research Foundation.

Andreas-Sarakinos-Denisyuk-Medal-25He has been active in Holography since 1985 following its development over time whilst focusing on research and development in Optical Holography for commercial applications. For many years, he operated the only non-academic Holographic Laboratory in Greece.

In 1994 he supervised the development of the novel integral digital holography system MVH (Multichannel Video Holography) funded by the Greek General Secretariat for Research and Development.

He has done research in the optimization of chemical processing of silver halide holographic emulsions and has developed hardware and software for hot-stamping equipment for embossed holograms. Since 2002 he has been active in lenticular 3D and has developed proprietary interlacing software and techniques for lenticular printing.

In 2015 he was awarded the DENISYUK MEDAL, D.S. Rozhdestvensky Optical Society, Russia , for the implementation of new technologies in the recording of color Denisyuk holograms.

He has participated in all international research and vocational projects of the Hellenic Institute of Holography and has given numerous lectures about optical holography in major academic institutions in Greece.
