The laboratory includes research groups, which focus on the following areas of condensed-matter physics
Research is connected with the Quantum mesoscopics department of the Landau Institute for theoretical physics.
Research directions: theory of quantum-coherent phenomena in disordered condensed matter and nanostructures at low temperatures (electron and spin transport, superconductivity, magnetism, quantum Hall effect, topological phenomena in condensed matter, quantum-computation devices).
Low-temperature physics and nanophysics
Research is connected with experimental laboratories at the Institute of solid-state physics (Laboratory of superconductivity, Laboratory of non-equilibrium electronic processes ,Laboratory of electron kinetics) and the Kapitza Institute for physical problems (spin dynamics group).
Research directions: experimental research in optics and electron transport in semiconductor nanostructures, Josephson effect in superconducting nanostructures with normal metals and ferromagnets, superconducting rapid memory cells, studies of quantum low-temperature properties of low-dimensional magnets and anomalous superfluid phases of helium-3.
Hydrodynamics and turbulence
Research is connected with the Department for physics of non-equilibrium phenomena at the Landau Institute for theoretical physics and the Laboratory of quantum crystals at the Institute of solid-state physics.
Research directions include experimental and theoretical investigations of :
- the physics of surface waves and solenoidal flows, hydrodynamic phenomena in thin films, two-dimensional turbulence;
- elastic turbulence, especially transport properties of microchannels;
- optical phenomena in optical fibers in the strongly nonlinear regime, laser generation and nonlinear regime of information transmission.
- Interaction between the groups is provided by the joint Seminar of the laboratory.
