SPA Crystal carries out research and development in the following areas: activated crystalline materials, functional crystalline optical materials, crystalline and polycrystalline materials for operation in a wide spectral range (UV, visible, IR). On the basis of the NPC is carried out:
Among the latest developments of the Institute in this area is the technology of creating the most efficient crystal for laser technology. Its uniqueness lies in the conversion of laser radiation in the wavelength range of 1.3-1.5 microns. Since 2018, the innovative method has been used in the production of devices for rangefinder, targeting, surgery and processing of various materials.
Exploratory research is underway on effective ultrafast scintillation optical ceramics based on zinc oxide doped with gallium (ZnO:Ga) and indium (ZnO:In). The set of characteristics of scintillation ceramics based on ZnO will allow them to be used:
