Over the years, the Faculty of Physics of the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv has developed and effectively formed a scientific field of research related to the technology and physics of semiconductors and dielectrics. Significant progress in these areas was accumulated at the Department of Semiconductor Physics, in particular in the laboratories. For instance: “Radiation-Stimulated Processes” (scientific supervisor,Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Professor Tsal M.O.), “Non-equilibrium Processes” (scientific supervisor,Candidate of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Associate Professor Zakharko Y.M.) and “Oxide crystals” (scientific supervisor ,Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences Nosenko A.E.). The urgency of the subject, significant scientific results and the presence of highly skilled personnel have become a prerequisite for the creation of a new department.
