Major: Applied Physics
In addition to the basics of experimental physics and technology, students of Applied Physics will learn issues of atom physics, molecular physics and solid state physics.
The topics from atomic physics and molecular physics include:
- interaction processes in electron-atom (particle) collisions;
- electron spectroscopy and vacuum technique;
- theory of atom structures and processes;
- optical and electrical properties of molecular crystals and polymers;
- phenomena concerning transport of electric charges in molecular crystals and amorphous systems;
- processes of energy transport in molecular systems.
The solid state physics topics include the following:
- electrooptic properties and inorganic structures of semi-conductive glass;
- rheologic properties of metals, glass, liquid crystals, thin layers and high-temperature superconductors applying acoustic spectroscopy;
- modification of surface properties of oxide glass and layers by the sol-gel method;
- applications of surface-modified glass to produce channel electron multipliers;
- phenomena concerning transport of charge in heterogeneous layers.
In addition to theoretical issues from the mentioned fields of physics, during laboratories, students learn various measuring techniques including state-of-the-art spectroscopic methods (atomic force spectroscopy, electron and dielectric spectroscopy and other).
The technical contents of studies in Applied Physics are supplemented by such subjects as electronics, information technology and materials engineering.
