MIPT is one of the leading universities in the areas of physics, mathematics, and informatics. The institute holds a leading position in Russia in quality recruitment and qualified graduate training. Students and graduates of MIPT are representatives of an elite circle who, thanks to their interdisciplinary scientific surroundings, are able to fully realize their potential.
The unique “Fiztech System” is one of the best approaches to education, which explains its existence in an almost unchanged form for more that 60 years. Receiving a fundamental education in mathematics and physics and a preliminary acquaintance with the chosen specialization, along with the acquisition of skills in independent work already by the 4th course provides each student with the knowledge and experience of a full scholar. Thus, by the end of the program, students already have significant achievements in their chosen area of activity.
In the present age of digital technology, time plays a particularly important role. Education of a difficult and protracted nature allows students and graduates of MIPT to always be in the trend of world science and to adapt to sudden changes in the situation.
Student life at MIPT is rich and diverse. Students actively combine educational activities with sports, participation in cultural events, as well as their creative endeavors. The administration at the institute strongly supports this initiative and cares about the welfare of its students. Thus, it is constantly working to expand the campus and interests of students.
Theoretical and experimental research into the fundamental physical properties of hybrid superconducting nano-structures, including the development of a quantitative microscopic theory of the quantum processes in these systems and a comparison with results of tunnelling experiments, electro transfer, atomic and high-frequency spectroscopy. Objects of research include metallic and semiconductor nano-structures based on superconductor contacts with so-called topological insulators.
The physics of “topologically protected” quantum states is a rapidly developing field of sciencethat is attracting much interest due to boththe new fundamental effects and the potential for creating principally new types of instruments for use in spintronics and quantum computing. The latter is particularly relevantas, at the present time, the main problem found in the realization of quantum computing in advanced laboratories is the loss of quantum coherence due to interaction with the environment. A potential means of solving this problem is the realization of topologically protected quantum states (so-called majorana fermions) which are resistant to external perturbations and therefore able to maintain quantum coherence over long time periods.
The aim of the project is to obtain world-class results in studies on the topological quantum effects in contacts between superconductors and semiconductors or ferromagnetic nanowires and the subsequent publication of these results in leading Russian and international journals, and the development of new quantum mechanical devices. Implementation of the project will, as necessary, include the training of specialists in quantum nanophysics at MIPT and cooperation between Russian and foreign scientists to develop a domestic system of scientific research, education and high technology.
