Educational process at the Department of Quantum Radiophysics

Since the establishment of the department and until today, its teachers constantly pay great attention to the creation of new educational programs based on world and own scientific achievements. The development of science and technology and the expansion of the range of organizations of both radiophysical and not directly related profiles, where graduates of the department have to work, require the staff of the department to constantly update special courses. The analysis of special courses taught at the department for 60 years shows that all of them were transformed in accordance with the requirements of scientific and technological progress. The classical courses of electrodynamics and ultra-high frequency technology also correspond to the modern level – they have changed significantly, especially in terms of their application by modern telecommunication technologies. The programs of the departmental lecture courses were prepared both by the teachers of the department of quantum radiophysics and other departments of the faculty, as well as by leading specialists of the institutes of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, with which the department maintains many years of fruitful relations.

The main pedagogical and methodological core of the specialization is modern laser and microwave information and communication systems and technologies, their physical basis and the corresponding element base. This approach corresponds both to the modern trends in the development of radiophysics and electronics, and to the urgent needs of today.

In recent years, more and more attention has been paid to the preparation of textbooks and libraries on digital media. For example, multimedia training courses awarded with the Taras Shevchenko Prize (2002), “Spin-wave electrodynamics” (O. Yu. Nechiporuk, V. V. Danilov, I. V. Zavyslyak), “Acoustoelectronics” (O. Yu. Nechiporuk), “Computer electrodynamics” (O. Yu. Nechiporuk, V. V. Danilov, S. L. Skrypka); widely used electronic libraries and textbooks on spin-wave electronics and electrodynamics, acoustoelectronics, acousoptics, polarimetry, etc.

Starting from the 6th academic semester, the following special lecture courses have been prepared and taught at the department for specialization students: “Microprocessor technology”, “Computer experiment”*, “Fundamentals of scientific research”, “Digital information processing”*, “Statistical radio physics” , “Physical electronics”, “Semiconductor electronics”, “Quantum radiophysics and nonlinear optics”, “Functional electronics”*, “Ultra-high frequency electrodynamics”, “Physics of active media”, “Modern communication technologies”, “Modern applied physics”, ” Microwave technology and electronics”, “Physical foundations of microelectronics”, “Modern radio physics”, “Optical telecommunication technologies”, “Problems of electronics”, “Radiophysical research methods”, “Spin-wave and optical information systems”, “Modeling of physical processes”, “Polarization information systems”, “Multimedia technologies”, “Design of radio electronic circuits”, “Fiber and integrated optics”, “Experimental laser physics”, “Computer mod elivation”, “Selected sections of quantum radiophysics” (taught in English), “Methodology of scientific creativity”, “Wave and oscillatory processes”, “Spin-wave electrodynamics”. Courses marked with * are accompanied by appropriate laboratory practicals.

The department trains specialists of a wide profile in the field of telecommunication technologies, including mobile, satellite and fiber-optic communication systems. The basis for this is the study of fundamental courses and workshops in electrodynamics and microwave technology, fiber and integrated optics, network and multimedia technologies, quantum radio physics, laser technology and functional electronics.

The department works in close connection with the world’s leading specialized laboratories, which ensures a high level of its scientific and educational work. Young scientists of the department conduct research in the scientific center “Electrotechnical Laboratory” (Japan), in the “Joule Laboratory” of the University of Salford (Great Britain), in the laboratory of the optical center “Creole” of the state of Florida (USA), in the scientific center of the University of Versailles (France), at the National University of Mexico (Mexico City).

A number of highly qualified foreign specialists have been trained at the department on the subject of the problem laboratory: Wang Chang Qing and Deng Qi Ping (PRC), Pham Za Nghi and Chan Dik Nien (Vietnam), Hwang Kim Tak (DPRK), Cambridge University graduate Arafat Seif Surial (Egypt), who defended his PhD thesis under the supervision of I. A. Deryugin.

It is quite natural that the scientific works of PNDL contribute to the improvement of the educational process of the department. Most of the scientific results obtained at PNDL are used in the courses of lectures by teachers and the staging of new laboratory works and workshops. A significant part of the department’s students undergo industrial practice and work on qualification and master’s theses in the Problem Laboratory, on its scientific equipment and on its subject.

The high scientific potential and scientific achievements of PNDL contributed to the creation in 1979 of a special faculty for the retraining of engineering personnel of the NPO “Zavod Arsenal” and other organizations in the specialty “Laser technology”, as well as a branch of the department at the Scientific Research Institute “Kvant”.


During the existence of the department and the Problem Laboratory of Quantum Radiophysics, 18 doctoral degrees were defended by teachers, full-time employees and graduates of the department (I. A. Deryugin, V. I. Vorontsov, V. I. Levashov, M. V. Danylenko, V. V. Danilov, M. I. Lyashenko, V. D. Tronko, V. I. Vysotsky, A. M. Pohorily, A. A. Kryuchin, V. F. Kovalenko, A. O. Solomko, V. I. Kravchenko, I. V. Zavyslyak, I. O. Anisimov, I. I. Davidenko, M. V. Davidenko, O. O. Serga) and a large number of candidate theses.
