Andrei F. Krupnov was born 31.01.34; graduated from Gorky State University in 1957; Ph.D at Gorky university 1965; D.Sc. Lebedev Physical Institute, Moscow 1975. He is Professor in Physics.

From 1977 to 2005 - head of Microwave Spectroscopy Department at the Applied Physics Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Current position - General Research Associate.

Scientific Awards: 1980 - State Prize of the USSR in Science "For Development of Submillimeterwave Spectroscopy Based on Backward Wave Oscillators", 1982 - Joint Prize of the USSR and CSSR Academies of Sciences "For Investigation of Fine Structure of Rotational - Vibrational Spectra of Nonrigid Molecules".

From 1976 to 2009 – Member of Editorial Advisory Board of the Journal of Molecular Spectroscopy, Elsevier Inc. (formerly Academic Press), USA.

Early results in beam masers: ring state separator, beam spectrometer with 240 Hz resolution, millimeterwave H2CO maser oscillator. Recent results in new technique of submillimeter microwave spectroscopy: spectrometer with backward wave oscillators (BWOs) and acoustical detector (RAD), submillimeter BWO's phase lock-in system, millimeterwave and submillimeterwave frequency synthesizers, precise broadband Terahertz spectrometer (jointly with Cologne University), extension of the range of microwave spectroscopy up to 1.5 THz by BWO frequency multiplication, modern millimeterwave resonator spectroscopy, fast broadband frequency synthesizers in millimeter and submillimeter bands. Applications of technique developed to the molecular spectra studies and precise measurements in submillimeter wave range. Publications: books: co-author of Molecular Spectroscopy: Modern Research, Academic Press, 1976; Modern Aspects of Microwave Spectroscopy, Academic Press, 1979.

Papers: total number 170.
