The Condensed-matter physics Laboratory was established in June 2016. It focuses on fundamental research in this area of physics as well as the development of a modern center for physics education.
The laboratory brings together leading Russian physicists from research centers of the Russian academy (Landau Institute for theoretical physics, Kapitza Institute for physical problems, Institute of solid-state physics, Institute for Spectroscopy, P.N. Lebedev Physical Institute).
Students at HSE will be able to enroll in undergraduate and Master’s programmes in Physics, starting in 2017. Furthermore, including those working on doctorates, students will also be able to carry out research not only at HSE laboratories, but also several leading institutes of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), which are launching joint departments with our new faculty.
