ITMO University Saint Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics


Research within the OPMNS Department is conducted at the Centre "Information Optical Technologies" (СIOT), equipped with cutting-edge equipment: high-power laser systems, optical, scanning, and electron microscopy, spectral analysis equipment, and various other optical research facilities. The centre facilities allow the research staff of the department to conduct fundamental and applied research on a wide range of problems of modern optics, spectroscopy, condensed matter physics, and light-matter interaction with nanoscale objects. The Centre "Information Optical Technologies" and the OPMNS Department together form the International Research and Education Centre for Physics of Nanostructures.
