Research Groups and Centers
The Ioffe Institute is one of Russia's largest institutions for research in physics and technology with a wide variety of operating projects. It was founded in 1918 and run for several decades by Abram F. Ioffe
Research on clusters and nanosystems has the general aim of understanding the properties of matter at small sizes (typically less than 1000 atoms) and its interaction with surfaces. Novel methods are developed to produce and characterize clusters and nanosystems free or deposited on surfaces and in matrices.
