Institute of Cybernetics

General Information

The Institute of Cybernetics (IC) was established in 1960 within the Division of Applied Mechanics and Control Processes of the Georgian Academy of Sciences. The Institute consists of 7 Departments employing about 90 scientists with Dr.Sc. and PhD degrees. Main areas of expertise are problems of informatics, complex information processing, quantum computations, automated systems of pattern recognition, fuzzy logic, methods of modeling and prediction of stochastic processes, artificial neural networks, photo-physical effects in photonics and quantum optics, optical and photo-electrical properties of nanostructures, and optical chemistry.

Institute’s Focus

Applied research is concentrated in the Department of microelectronic devices and nanomaterials (a low temperature thin film deposition technology for the fabrication of Ge quantum dots embedded in metal oxide matrices; fabrication of Ge nanocrystals; oxygen-assisted technology for growing germanium nitride nano-wires and nano-crystals for gas sensor applications) and the Department of Coherent and Quantum Optics (use of laser-induced fluorescence spectroscopy for medical diagnostics and non-invasive medical imaging; polarization holographic optical elements and devices for the analysis and transformation of light; holographic memory of high capacity).

Valuable Technology Offerings

The Optics Research Laboratory at the Department of Coherent and Quantum Optics has a spin-off company, Holoretech Ltd, commercializing research results arising from a new trend in optics – polarization holography, pioneered by Prof. Shermazan Kakichashvili. The company claims to have a set of proprietary technologies (production of high-quality art holograms, synthesis of polarization sensitive media, creation of polarization holographic gratings, experimental samples of high-capacity polarization memory element) that have potential applications for optical devices working in real time (switches, amplifiers), holographic elements for document security (passports, visas, credit cards), data storage, high-brightness art holograms of three-dimensional objects (holographic exhibits at museums, etc.). It is a good example of institute technology utilization.

Scientific Cooperation and Technology Transfer

International scientific contacts include mostly institutes of applied mathematics and physics in Germany (Technical University, Berlin; Karlsruhe University’s Institute of Applied Physics), Russia (Lebedev Institute of Physics), Italy (Napoli University’s Mathematical Institute; University of Calabria), England (Oxford University’s Mathematical Institute), Israel (Weizmann Institute of Science), Japan (Japanese Institute of Science and Technology). Several projects have been supported by the ISTC, STCU, CRDF, and Georgian NSF.
