About the Department. The Department of Physics was founded in 1930. The Head of the Department is KrukN.N., Doctor of Physical-Mathematical Sciences, Professor. The Department staff comprises 17 teachers, including 2 Doctors and 12 Candidates of Physical-Mathematical Sciences.
Academic Activities. The Department delivers courses for all the students of the University in Physics, Measurement of Physical Quantities, Lasers and Technical Physics. Traditional and innovative techniques are widely used in the process of teaching. The Department has developed multimedia virtual laboratory practice in Physical Principles of Mechanics. The Physics Olympiad is held. The Department conducts classes for applicants at the Preparatory Course.
Facilities. The Department includes 6 educational laboratories:
- 2 mechanics and molecular physics laboratories;
- 2 electricity and magnetism laboratories;
- 2 optics and structure of matter laboratories.
The laboratories are equipped with 54 laboratory units to study mechanical, thermodynamic and electromagnetic phenomena which are the basis of classical and modern physics.
Research. The Department conducts experimental and theoretical research in different fields of modern physics:
- Development of a single statistical model of molecular systems in crystalline, liquid and gaseous states.
- Study of the influence of a strong pulsed magnetic field on physical, chemical and biological properties of different units.
- Physical and technological engineering principles of catalytically active surface of functional materials using ion beams.
- Study of charge transfer in systems with localized electrons.
- Physical and chemical properties of coatings and processes occurring in ion-beam modification of materials.
- Physical – mechanical and chemical properties of modified tools surface during metal and wood processing.
- Application of galvano-magnetic and magnetooptical effects to study the properties of semiconductor materials.
- Study of fluctuations and correlations in multiparticle production processes in high energy physics.
- Optical study of superhard wide-gap materials and their use in optoelectronic applications.
The Department trains high professionals in Theoretical Physics, Physics of Condensed State.
