Scientific-educational activities in the Institute (brief overview)
Since the foundation of the Institute, the preparation of highly qualified scientific personnel has been one of its main activities.
The Institute has a basic chair "Nanooptics and Spectroscopy" (formerly known as "Quantum Optics" chair founded by Academician G.S. Landsberg) in Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology - a leading higher educational establishment of Russia (and previously of Soviet Union) in physics and mathematical sciences. Currently, the chair is headed by the Institute of Spectroscopy director, Member of the European Academy of Sciences, Professor, corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences Evgeniy A. Vinogradov.
The Institute has a license to carry out educational activities in the field of post-graduate education (full-time and part-time post-graduate school) with the following speciality: "Optics", "Theoretical Physics", "Condensed Matter Physics", "Laser Physics", as well as training in doctor habilitation with the speciality "Optics ". Every year 10-15 students are involved into a post-graduate course within the Institute.
The educational process includes cycles of specific lectures, seminars and laboratory work in the laboratory of experimental spectroscopic methods (Head of Laboratory – E.B. Perminov).
The Research-Educational Center (REC) "Broadband Spectroscopy of Advanced Materials" has been established within the Institute. It unifies and coordinates research work and further professional education of young scientists: under-graduate, post-graduate and doctoral students, trainees, young researchers from other research and educational institutions carrying out their work within the framework of joint projects. REC coordinates the interaction with domestic and foreign scientific and educational organizations. As part of the REC work, cooperation agreements with the following institutions are concluded:
- Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology;
- M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University;
- Moscow Pedagogical State University;
- Moscow Aviation Institute;
- National University of Science and Technology;
- Kazan State University;
- A. and N. Stoletovs Vladimir State University;
- M. Akmullah Bashkir State Pedagogical University (Ufa);
- L.N. Gumilyov Eurasian National University (Astana, Kazakhstan);
- Cologne University, Germany;
The Institute has a Dissertation Council for awarding degrees of Candidate of Sciences (Ph.D. equivalent) and Doctor of Sciences (full professor equivalent) with the specializations "Optics" and "Theoretical Physics" (Chairman E.A. Vinogradov, Scientific Secretary Dr. D.S. Pytalev). Institute of Spectroscopy employees are also members of Dissertation Councils working at other scientific and educational institutions of Russian Federation (Moscow State University, Moscow Pedagogical State University, Center for Unique Instrumentation of the Russian Academy of Sciences, etc.).
Young scientists of the Institute regularly become the winners of national and international competitions of scientific works and receive prestigious awards and medals, special grants and scholarships.
Under-graduate and post-graduate students and young scientists are actively involved in the academic life of the Institute, have the opportunity to deliver reports at renowned conferences and symposia (both in Russia and abroad), work as trainees at the best known international research centers. The Institute cooperates with a wide range of organizations: universities, research centers, innovative enterprises and businesses working in the real economy. This ensures employment and a successful career for graduates.
