Inspired by the works of Professor A.A. Abrikosov, the Nobel Prize winner, who held the Chair of the Department of Theoretical Physics from 1975 to 1990, we train students for a scientific research in the following areas:

  • Strongly Correlated Electron Systems
  • Collective Phenomena in Quantum Matter
  • Non-equilibrium and Nonlinear Phenomena
  • Electronic Crystals
  • Lipid Membranes and Lipid-Protein Pnteractions
  • Non-equilibrium Phenomena in Single Electron Devices
  • Superconducting Metamaterials
  • Syntesis of New Materials
Computer simulations:
  • Modelling and Development of New Materials
  • Modelling of Solidification and Phase Transition in Metals

Our vision is that industry of the XXI century would be based on quantum mechanics — hence "quantum technlogies" in the title of the department.

English Language Master's Program

In the summer of 2014 we launched English version of our successful Russian-language master's program "Physics of nanosystems" (taught since 2008). The main feature of our master's program is that subjects are tought by the leaders of research groups. Please find curriculum and other information at program's page.

After Graduation

Here's a list of some of our alumni:

Get in Touch

If you are interested in joining one of our research groups — please find the relevant person's contact information at the staff page. That page also contains links to publications of the researchers. It is useful to run through a couple of group leader's recent publications to get an idea of the research activity.
