Tuchin Valeriy Viktorovich, Saratov State University

A short history of foundation and development of Chair of Optics of Saratov State University (SSU) is presented. Chair was founded on May 5, 1946 by Professor Mark L’vovich Katz, well recognized expert in luminescence. In the paper the outstanding role of M.L. Katz in the development of optical education and science in SSU, other Universities, organizations and enterprises of Saratov Region is shown. August 12, 2006 is 100-years anniversary of Professor M.L. Katz. In the paper the current status of educational and scientific programs, education and research staff, as well as research-educational achievements of Chair of Optics and Biomedical Physics are also analyzed.
