The device research laboratory (LPD) is the oldest group in the “Gleb Wataghin”.Physics Institute (IFGW)
It was established in 1972 by Prof. J.E.Riper with strong emphasis in developing devices for optical telecommunication.
In its 34 years of existence, it has developed several optoelectronic devices and prototypes using GaAs/AlGaAs, InGaAsP/InP, and GaAs/GaAlSb compounds.
More recently, it has widened its focus of research to incorporate electronic and other optoelectronic devices, as well as fundamental investigation in material synthesis, nano-science and nano-technology.
Located in the Applied Physics Department, the LPD has a full facility for material synthesis, processing, and characterization of semiconductor devices.
