    Laboratory of Terahertz Spectroscopy

    1_i_logo.jpgLaboratory of Terahertz Spectroscopy was established at MIPT in 2014. The Laboratory is in active collaboration with a number of scientific centers all over the world, the collaboration includes mutual visits, joint research projects and publications in highly ranked journals. The scientific activity of the Laboratory is supported by the Russian Ministry of Education and Science “Project  5-100-MIPT”, Russian Science Foundation and by Russian Foundation for Basic Research  grants.


    Areas of research:


    1) Collective electron interactions in new potentially useful materials;


    2) Physical properties of objects at nano and sub-nano scales;


    3) Terahertz spectroscopy of biological molecules, systems and materials;

    4) Characterization and diagnostics of industrial materials and structures;


    5) Equipment and techniques for the terahertz frequencies;


    6) Use of THz radiation and its properties in the education process;


    7) Remote probing and astrophysical research in the terahertz range.
