Condensed Matter Physics

General information

The goal of the study is to give students full theoretical and experimental background in classic and modern problems of condensed matter and prepare them for a profession of a physicist specialized in this favoured discipline. The graduates receive general education in experimental and theoretical physics of solids. They study the structure of crystals, metals, semiconductors and insulators and attend systematic education in an area of microscopic models of electronic and vibrational structure of solids. Specialized lectures are given on bulk semiconductor and supraconductive materials. The graduates learn basic technologies of crystal growth and deposition of thin coats. In courses of analytical methods they get familiar with X-ray structure analysis, measurement of electric properties, optical spectroscopy and ellipsometry in a wide spectrum from far infrared to ultraviolet wavelengths.

A successful graduate is able to

  • utilize the basic knowledge of physical world, especially at the microscopic level
  • widen and deepen the acquired knowledge
  • solve independently related problems in theoretical, experimental and applied research

Graduate employment

Graduates can find jobs as independent creative workers in institutions of basic and applied research in the area of condensed matter, and also in research, development and production branches of companies. Some of the graduates can continue in a doctoral study programme.
