Department Nanophysics of Condensed Matter

Current R&D activity at the Department  of Nanophysics of  Condensed Matter is concentrated on the creation of semiconductor heterostructures and investigation of their physical properties; particularly, we study semiconductor nanostructured materials, nanoparticles in solid matrices and fluids, quantum dots, photonic crystals, porous semiconductors and dielectrics, aerogels, nanotubes, nanoceramics, high-temperature superconductors, and organic semiconductors. 

Our work is aimed onto establishing the fundamental relations between the chemical composition, atomic structure, and microstructure, on the one side, and macroscopic properties of devices, on the other. We study the role of surface and size effects in the electrical, electro-optical, and luminescent properties of elaborated structures and compositions. 

We study, theoretically as well as experimentally, various devices of spintronics, opto-and nano-electronics, such as solar cells, chemical and gas sensors, radiation sensors, solid-state hydrogen sources. Principal experimental techniques include electronic and atomic force microscopy, optical spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, photoluminescence, methods of spin resonance, electrical and photoelectric methods. 

Several research projects are carried out in cooperation with scientists from France, United Kingdom, Germany, Taiwan and Russia in joint research programs and grants. We collaborate with Institut des Nanotechnologies de Lyon (France), Helmholtz-Zentrum, Berlin (Deutschland), St. Petersburg State University (Russia), Aston University, Birmingham (United Kingdom).
The Department provides training for students in semiconductor physics, nanotechnology, opto- and microelectronics. All teachers of the department are actively working researchers with experience of teaching and research work in universities abroad, have high citation rating.
