The physics and material science laboratory researches in areas of advanced materials, nanophotonics, lasers and optics, theoretical and experimental particle physics. The research group is interested in development of a new type of material for energy, converting nuclear energy into the energy of optical radiation, and to explore the most fundamental questions about the nature of the universe, plasma physics, and heavy ion fusion. The laboratory collaborates with world-class researchers from different laboratories as Lawrence Berkley National laboratory, Cyclotron Institute of Texas A&M University and Princeton University.
The advanced materials group
The advanced materials group focuses to obtain new materials for energy, electronics, lasers and etc. They direct towards to develop the GaN thin film and nanostructures technology by using magnetron sputtering system. They collaborate with world class experienced researchers from the Lawrence
Berkeley National Laboratory to lead the plasma physics research into the deep understanding of making of advanced materials.
The nanophotonics group
The nanophotonics group explores to understand, build and characterize high quality both close packed and non-close packed photonic colloidal crystals. They combine theory and experiment to understand photonic properties of periodically assembled nanomaterials. They use this knowledge to create thin films of photonic crystals able to concentrate and channel incident solar light making solar cells more efficient.
The lasers and optics group
The lasers and optics group performs research on development the direct conversion of nuclear energy into the energy of optical radiation. Mechanisms of the inverted-population-forming processes in the direct nuclear pumped lasers will be investigated, new gas mixtures with high efficiency of luminescence under excitation by ionizing radiation will be defined.
The nuclear physics group
The theoretical and experimental group focuses to study theatomic nucleus, a many-body system of strongly interacting constituents bound together by the strongest forces known in nature. Popular cosmology theories tell us that, within an instant after the Big Bang, nuclear synthesis has driven the evolution of the universe. To understand this evolution, we need information about a wide range of nuclear reactions, many of which involve an unstable nucleus capturing a proton or an alpha particle and transmuting to a new unstable nucleus
