Department branch of the «Lviv Politechnic» National University
The SRC «Carat» is fruitfully collaborating with
leading regional institutions of higher education in training engineers and
scientists in field of micro- and nanoelectronics.
Now the branch of Semiconductor Electronics Department
of the «Lviv Politechnic»
Scientific activity of the Department is concentrated
in the following directions: semiconductor microelectronics, solid state
physics and applied structures.
The Department deals with investigations of complex
oxide crystals and thin films aiming on improvement of their properties and
search of new applications in devices of electronic engineering; optimizes
active media and transforming devices on their base for quantum, magneto-, and
optoelectronics, transducers of physical quantities; studies physico-chemical
synthesis and controlled modification processes of materials properties for
application in functional, micro- and nanoelectronics.
Especially the Department attends to student R&D
works. Senior students are actively engaged in scientific work in laboratories
of the Department and SRC «Carat»; take part in domestic and international
Scientific and engineering staff of the SRC «Carat»
gives theoretical courses on special disciplines to students and post-graduate
ones; carries out laboratory works; is supervisors their diploma works and
dissertations. Dr. Sc. Mykola Vakiv is the Department’s professor.
For the past years the Department has trained some
hundreds of specialists, considerable part of which connected their own destiny
with SRC «Carat». Due to fruitful collaboration with «Lviv Politechnic»
The branch of Semiconductor Electronics Department of
the «Lviv Politechnic» National University cooperate fruitfully with foreign
scientific centers of Poland, Hungary, Germany, Austria, Japan, China, Russia,
Great Britain, etc. in the frame of numerous intergovernmental programs on
S&T cooperation. The Department’s staff together with scientists of the
«Carat» has performed some tens of R&D works including more than 10 international
