IOP2B: It is competitive world…..be prepared!

Institute of Physics, Ukraine

Founded in 1926 in the capital of Ukraine ,Kiev,  the Institute of Physics, National Academy of Sciences is the oldest research institution of physical science within the Academy.

IOP boasts a broad spectrum of areas of scientific study including solid state physics, physical and quantum electronics, nonlinear optics and holography, plasma physics, physics of semiconductors, liquid crystals and nuclear physics. The IOP organizational structure includes 16 scientific departments, 7 specialized labs and a National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine center for “collective use”, the Femtosecond Laser Complex, collectively staffed with about 200 scientists (PhD and DSc).
The IOP has a track record of manufacturing various devices, instruments, and systems including liquid-helium and liquid-nitrogen cryostats, radiation detectors and sensors, laser systems, bolometers and electric topographs, cryosurgery instruments, pyro-receivers, highly sensitive photo elements, devices for remote temperature measurement, etc. Most of these devices are specialized, science-intensive, niche units used in scientific laboratory experiments at research institutions.
Institute’s Focus
The core competencies of the Institute could be summarized as follows:
•Physics of non-metal and liquid crystals
•Physics of surface, emission and plasma electronics, electronic and atomic processes on solid surfaces
•Biophysics
•Laser and non-linear optics physics
•Physics of radiation processes.
Although predominantly basic science-oriented, IOP undertakes a certain amount of applied R&D mostly concentrated in such areas as:
•laser systems and laser technologies
•radiation and plasma technologies
•precision control systems for low-temperature/cryogenic studies
•sensors and measurement devices

The Institute has a track record of manufacturing various devices, instruments, and systems including liquid-helium and liquid-nitrogen cryostats, radiation detectors and sensors, laser systems, bolometers and electric topographs, cryosurgery instruments, pyro-receivers, highly sensitive photo elements, devices for remote temperature measurement, etc. IOP’s Department of gas electronics developed a new type of sterilizer for processing medical instruments and materials at a temperature less than 60°C using ultraviolet radiation and active electrically neutral particles of low-temperature gas discharge plasma.
The Department of radiation sensors was credited for the development of pyro-electric IR radiation sensors and measuring devices for space applications. For example, IR radiation sensors and high-sensitivity 32- and 64-element linear arrays of pyro-electric radiation sensors were engineered for use in on-board IR spectrometers on Meteor and Ocean satellites and Venus and Mars interplanetary stations.
