Research activities

The research of the Department of Solid State Physics is focused on the physics of disordered and partially ordered condensed matter and, in particular, phase transitions in these systems.

The aim of this research is to discover the basic laws of the physics of disordered and partially ordered systems, which are the intermediate link between perfectly ordered crystals on the one hand and amorphous matter and living matter on the other.

The research focuses on understanding the structure and dynamics of disordered and partially ordered systems at the microscopic level, which is a prerequisite for the development of new multifunctional materials, nanomaterials and biological systems.
