The current major research area in the Department includes:

  • Development of high-vacuum electromagnetic sources of the O- and M-type for the frequency range from several tens to a thousand gigahertz using diverse techniques of converting the energy of spatially developed electron flows in complex electromagnetic structures.
  • Exploring the mechanisms of electromagnetic signal generation within a wide wave range as a result of processes occurring in weak electrolytes due to electric discharges.
  • Development of principles and means of forming and transportation of strong electron flows for microwave electronic vacuum devices; development of cathode and electron-optical systems for millimeter and submillimeter devices.
