Metamaterials Degree Master’s Program:
Focuses on the study of metamaterials, the new materials that will revolutionize telecommunication, radiotechnology, and power industry. The physics of metamaterials combines optics and nanophotonics, radiophysics and solid-state physics. The program is led by the Center of Nanophotonics and Metamaterials of the ITMO University, one of the leading research centers in the field.
Covers all fundamentals of electrodynamics, quantum mechanics, and solid-state physics. Wide range of special courses taught by research center staff includes up-to-date courses in nanophotonics, quantum optics, numerical methods, radiophysics and others.
Involves intensive laboratory studies using facilities of the center: optical instrumentation, radiofrequency measurements, and nanotechnology fabrication methods.
Places students in active research teams, accelerating hands-on knowledge and professional growth.
Offers a personalized track depending on students’ specialization.
Opens doors to best PhD programs in universities all over the world in the field of physics and engineering. The Center of Nanophotonics and Metamaterials has industrial partners both in Russia and worldwide (i.e. Bosch and Samsung).
