Project: "Development and study of the properties of semiconductor quantum dots and metal nanoparticles for optical applications"


The main objectives of the project:


  • Conducting of exploratory studies in the formation of semiconductor quantum dots and metal nanoparticles, investigation of its properties and   the development of physical principles of  new optical devices and systems based on them;
  • implementation of the fundamental knowledge in the educational process, carried out in Saint-Petersburg State Polytechnical University (bachelors’ training) and Saint-Petersburg Academic University – Scientific and Educational Center of nanotechnology of the Russian Academy of Sciences (training  of Masters and PhD students).


Research Areas:

  • development of methods for controlled formation of arrays of quantum dots, designed for  establishing the  quantum photonics devices, using epitaxial synthesis on semiconductor surfaces, modified by the  means of scanning probe microscopy, study of the characteristics of such arrays of quantum dots;
  • development of  the methods of  the nanoparticles formation in the glasses of metal nanoparticles in the  glass matrix with pre-definable concentration and size of the metal particles, the area of its  ​​localization, as well as  methods  of control of the resonance spectral position of the plasmons surface,  determining the spectral domain of  optical nonlinearity, increasing of  the luminescence efficiency, study of the possibility of  the spectral extending of the plasmon resonance domain without reducing the effectiveness of processes, defined by the collective excitation of the electrons of the metal.
