The laboratory participates in the development and improvement of synthesis methods for the  new nanostructured, film and 3D-materials, researches their microstructural, optic and electronic properties as well as the design of functional devices on their basis. University’s experimental equipment is used to complete the projects. The projects the laboratory participates in are completed through inter-institution and international cooperation. The physical characteristics of semiconductor and dielectric materials obtained in the Laboratory help to identify the perspective areas for their application in microelectronics, photonics and laser technologies. In particular, non-linear crystals have been grown and researched to transform laser emission in vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) and IR regions as well as scintillating and semiconductor crystals for the detection of neutron radiation.

The methods of obtaining different materials developed at the laboratory and their experimental study are accompanied by the development of theoretical models and design of calculation algorithms. It allows the researchers to assess the physical properties of multicomponent crystals rather accurately.

The Laboratory conducts research in the following areas:

  •  Oxide compounds crystal growth which contain the ions of Eu3+, Eu2+, Sm3+, Tb3+, Pr3+ and Dy3+;
  • Physical basis for resistive (memristor) memory; 
  •  Production of micro- and nanostructures and the study of their resonance interaction with electromagnetic radiation; 
  •  The study of properties of functional graphene;
  •  The development and production of effective typologies of two-dimensional silicon-based photonic crystals.

The Laboratory has been established on the basis of the University’s Semiconductor Physics Section. It carries out joint research studies with the Institute of Semiconductors (Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences).
