Laboratory of Terahertz Technology: Understanding the Matter

Condensed matter physics

Condensed matter as a broad branch of physics is important not only for fundamental, but also for theoretical positions. The study of regularities in condensed matter behavior is basic for control of material properties, for making new materials, and for development of the up-to-date elements and devices.

Optical strongly correlated systems and spectroscopic methods

The development of light control technologies is a relevant problem of modern physics and engineering. Recently photonic crystals and metamaterials that are media with spatial periodicity of dielectric permittivity and permeability attract much attention in this direction. The photons’ behavior in such media with long-range correlations principally differs from the ordinary homogeneous media. This leads to a large complex of new phenomena, i.e. band gaps, light localization etc.

THz imaging system, and the interaction of radiation with structured materials

Terahertz imaging systems are valuable for different applications: in life safety systems, biomedical applications, for technological and operational control of polymer structures. For the development of such systems it is important to understand the principles of THz propagation in complex materials, including locally ordered media.

Mode-coupling instability in monolayer dusty plasma crystal

In the frames of joint cooperation with the Research-Educational Center "Ion-Plasma Technology" we study dusty plasma crystals. This movie illustrates two amazing phenomena - a heavy particle flies over 2D crystal, and a special kind of dusty plasma instability - mode-coupling instability (MCI).More
