Laboratory of Terahertz Spectroscopy

Laboratory of Terahertz Spectroscopy have been established in MIPT in 2014. Since 2016 the Laboratory is part of the MIPT Center of Nanoscale Optoelectronics. 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) Research into the nature of collective electron interactions in new potentially useful materials;


2) The investigation of the physical properties of objects at the nano and sub-nano scale;


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


4) The characterization and diagnostics of industrial materials and structures;


5) Equipment and methods for the terahertz range of frequencies;


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


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