Type of the organization / person: R&D
The mission of the institute is achievement of fundamental knowledge in the condensed matter physics, optics, spectroscopy and laser physics; application of this knowledge for the creation of new materials, devices and analytical methods for micro- and nano-technologies, as well as for new approaches in the interdisciplinary fields of the physics with biology, medicine, archaeology; transfer of the achieved results to the economy of Bulgaria.
The Institute of Solid State Physics (ISSP) was founded in 1972 with the aim to develop fundamental and applied research in the fields of microelectronics, acoustoelectronics, low temperature physics, optics and spectroscopy. Throughout the years ISSP grew up covering new modern areas like liquid crystal physics, soft and living matter physics, nanophysics. The main scientific and applied achievements of the Institute are in the field of condensed matter theory, critical phenomena and phase transitions, superconductivity and superconducting materials, low temperature physics, nanophysics, liquid crystal physics, soft and living matter physics, structure and properties of crystals and amorphous materials, atom and plasma physics, high precision thermometers, integrated optics, optical fibres, acoustoelectric and microelectronic sensors, metal vapour lasers.
