Founded in 1986, the Scientific Research Institute of Nuclear Problems employs 70 teaching and research staff members.

Research at the Institute falls into four main areas:

  1. Research in the field of nucleus physics and elementary-particle physics, Cosmo-microphysics and nuclear astrophysics, nuclear optics of polarized environments with the purpose of establishment of fundamental laws determining development of the microcosm.
  2. Research in the field of physics and electrodynamics of the condensed environments with complex structure with the purpose of establishment of their physical properties and creation of new perspective materials for laser technical equipment, detectors of ionize radiations, nanotechnology.
  3. Research in the field of creation of free electron volumetric lasers and their applications in new technologies.
  4. Development of methods and hardware means for systems emergency situation prevention, including radiating and ecological failures, ecological control and monitoring of natural environment, radiating safety in medicine and national economy.
