V. Ciornea - Institute of Applied Physics of the Academy of Science of Moldava

  1. 1. Academy of Sciences of Moldova INSTITUTE OF APPLIED PHYSICS Donji Milanovac, 2011
  2. 2. Foundation• The Institute of Applied Physics (IAP) - the largestscientific physical institution in the Republic ofMoldova• Founded in 1964. Academician Boris LAZARENKO (1910-1979) The first director of the Institute, inventor, researcher, laureate of the USSR State Prize for the invention of the Electrical discharge machining (EDM), the founder of the IAP Experimental Plant - the 1970-1980 USSR monopolist in EDM systems.
  3. 3. HistoryThe Institute has been known to the world scientificcommunity for its fundamental and appliedinvestigations since its establishment thanks to theschools:• of Crystallography (acad. T. Malinowski)• of Electrochemistry (acad. Yu. Petrov)• of Physics of Semiconducting Materials (acad. S.Radautsan)• of Kinetic Physics (acad. V. Kowarski).Today the Institute is proud to have acad. S.Moskalenko and acad. V. Moskalenko as the headsof the theoretical physics schools of Solid State Theoryand of Nuclear Physics; acad. A. Andriesh as thehead of the school of Physics of Noncrystalline
  4. 4. Present The Institute has 13 laboratories:• Physics of Ternary and Multinary Compounds• Materials and Structures for Solar EnergyConversion• Physical Methods of Solid State Investigation• Mechanical Properties of Materials• Hydrodynamic Processes and Electro-floatation• Electrochemical Treatment of Materials• Electrical Methods to Control Thermal Processes• Electroerosion for Treatment of Materials andProtection against Corrosion• Theory of Semiconductors and QuantumElectronics• Statistical and Nuclear Physics• Photoelectric Properties of Semiconductors• Registration Media and Photonics
  5. 5. StaffCurrently the Institute employs 225 persons, among them 156 researchers: 27 doctors-habilitate and professors 72 doctors 6 ASM academicians 3 ASM corresponding members 52 young scientists (under 35) 18 post-graduate students

Main research areas• Physics of condensed matter, atoms and nuclei• Semiconductor materials, including nano-materials• Quantum optics and electronics• Development of multifunctional electronic andoptoelectronic devices, of new technologies• Using electric fields to intensify heat- and masstransfer• Modification of surfaces of materials by electro-
  8. 8. Ground-based solar radiation monitoring station The IAP carries out research of the atmospheric optical phenomena, optical and microphysical properties of atmospheric aerosols, solar and atmosphere radiation within the spectral range from ultraviolet to far-infrared margin of spectrum, and the total column ozone content in an atmosphere. In 2003 a ground-based monitoring station (unique in the region) was registered in the Global Atmosphere Watch Station Information System as a Regional fixed station in WMO RA VI – Europe. Data on solar radiation and total column
