J. Spigulis graduated as physicist from the University of Latvia in 1973. PhD thesis on optical processes in metal vapors have been defended in 1979, and Dr.Habil. Phys. thesis on novel optoelectronic methods and devices - in 1993. SInce 1986 his research is focused to fiberoptics, optoelectronics and biomedical optics; he established and leads the Bio-optics and Fibre-optics Laboratory at the Institute of Atomic Physics and Spectroscopy, University of Latvia (currently being Director of the Institute). His work has been related to design and investigation of optical fibre sensors, communication devices, medical lightguide systems and new types of the side-glowing optical fibres, as well as to development of novel optical methods for nonivasive clinical diagnostics and monitoring. Dr. Spigulis has developed lecture courses "Lightguide Physics", "Optoelectronics", “Laser Physics” and “Earth Physics” for BSc. students, as well as "Fundamentals of Biomedical Optics" and "Medical Lightguides" for MSc. students. In 1995 he launched the MSc program on Biomedical Optics at University of Latvia and actively co-ordinated this program over the following years.
J. Spigulis was the founder, chairman and co-chairman of the Baltic Chapter of SPIE – the International Society for Optical Engineering, he is a member of SPIE, Optical Society of America (OSA), Latvian Union of Scientists, Latvian Physical Society and Latvian Society of Medical Engineering and Physics. Currently he is presiding Latvian Regional Committee of ICO – International Commission for Optics, and the Latvian Local Section of OSA. In 2007 J. Spigulis became the Corresponding member of Latvian Academy of Sciences.
