Institute of Electron Physics, NASU

General Information

The Institute of Electron Physics is the first physical institute of Ukrainian National Academy of Sciences in Transcarpathia. It was founded in 1992 on the base of Uzhgorod Department of the Institute for Nuclear Research, Ukrainian Academy of Sciences. The Institute is a known center in studying the resonance and auto-ionizing phenomena in atomic systems, radiation solid-state physics and nuclear reactions using an M-30 electron accelerator (microtron)

Focus and Expertise

The core competencies of the Institute could be summarized as follows:

  • Development of the physical and chemical grounds of production of acousto-optical, electro-optical and non-linear materials in different phase states (single crystals, polycrystals, glasses, thin films and nano-dimensioned structures) for functional electronics.
  • Studies of elementary processes and phenomena stimulated by interactions of electron, ion, photon, atomic and molecular low and intermediate-energy beams with each other and with the condensed matter.
  • Physical processes and mechanisms of lasing excitation in metal-vapor lasers, development of new lasers and optical devices and materials for quantum electronics.
  • Physics of radiation processes in solids.

Although being mainly fundamental science-oriented, IEP carries out a large amount of applied research projects mostly concentrated in the following fields:

  • Development of devices for industrial applications and medicine.
  • Digital burden weighing devices, humidity meters for layered structures and thickness meters for multi-layered structures.
  • Electron guns and compact mass-spectrometers for probing the upper Earth's atmosphere.
  • Laser devices for intravenous blood irradiation, acupuncture and physiotherapy.
  • Lithium tetraborate-based sensors for ionizing radiation.

Through applied research, scientists at the Institute have developed a number of technologies that have commercial potential. The technologies include:

  • The physical and chemical fundamentals and technologies of obtaining materials promising for applications in functional electronics - macroscopic and mesoscopic crystals, films and glasses.
  • High-quality paratellurite crystals of extended size and different topology, as well as borate crystals doped with various dopants, composite materials with incorporated nanocrystals.
  • Technologies of obtaining protective and anti-reflective coatings for optical elements of KDP (KH2P04), DKDP (KD2PO4), CDA (CsH2As04}, DCDA (CSD2ASO4) single crystals have been elucidated. The main features of the effect of disorder on optical properties of phosphide and chalcogenide lll-V and ll-VI group semiconductor crystals, including nanocrystals in dielectric matrices, as well as the specific features of the physical processes in these materials under high-energy irradiation have been studied.
  • The technology of production of semiconductor materials with no crystallization front contact with container walls has been developed.
  • The technique of studying electron interactions with atoms, molecules and single-charged ions has been developed. A number of ultra-monoenergetic electron monochromators and analyzers have been designed for operating in the low and intermediate electron energy ranges.
  • The discharge sources of coherent and non-coherent radiation based on metal vapors and their chemical compounds have been developed.
  • The technique of structural ordering in solid-state materials using the M-30 microtron has been developed.
