Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics

L.D. Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences was established in 1964 at Chernogolovka Research center of the Russian academy of sciences near Moscow.

  • Main research topics
  • Condensed matter physics
  • Low-dimensional and mesoscopic systems
  • Nonlinear dynamics
  • Quantum field theory
  • Relativistic astrophysics and cosmology
  • Physics of quantum computing
  • Mathematical physics
  • Computational physics and network research

Kapitza Institute for Physical Problems

P. L. Kapitza Institute for Physical Problems of the Russian Academy of Sciences was founded in 1934. The founder of the Institute, P.L.Kapitza, served as its head for many years. The theoretical division of the Institute for about 30 years was headed by L. D. Landau.

IPP is currently one of the leading research and educational institutions in low temperature physics.
The main fields of research include:

  • Quantum fluids and solids
  • Quantum theory of condensed matter
  • Superconductivity
  • Low temperature magnetism
  • Scanning tunnel microscopy for study of materials

Institute of Solid State Physics

The Institute of Solid State Physics was established by the Academy of Sciences of the USSR in 1963, in order to realize an efficient combination and interaction between fundamental research in condensed matter physics and materials science.

Today ISSP is one of the largest academic physical institutes and a recognized scientific center, with research over a wide range of topics.

At ISSP fundamental research is done in two principal directions:

  • experimental and theoretical aspects of solid state physics;
  • physical metallurgy as a combination of interrelated sections of fundamental physics, physical chemistry, mechanics.

Institute of Spectroscopy

Institute of Spectroscopy was established in 1968 as a successor of the Commission for Spectroscopy within the General physics and astronomy Branch of the USSR Academy of Sciences. At present the Institute is a part of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
The main fields of scientific activity of the Institute include:

  • spectroscopy of atoms, ions, molecules, clusters, plasma, condensed matter (bulk and surface), novel materials with ultrahigh temporal, spectral, spatial resolution. Development of new spectroscopic methods.
  • laser spectroscopy (including applications for atomic optics, nanophotonics, femtooptics, photochemistry, photobiology, analytical chemistry, nanotechnologies, isotopes separation etc.)
  • analytical spectroscopy (including applications in technologies, for diagnostic purposes in material sciences, medicine, ecology etc.)
  • development of unique devices, spectral instruments, detection systems, methods for spectral analysis in fundamental sciences and applied fields.
  • education of scientific personnel
