    The Photonics Materials Master's program of ITMO's School of Photonics is conducted in English. The program is aimed at training world-class specialists with a wide range of competencies from the fundamentals of materials physics to the applied aspects of developing modern optoelectronic devices. The students obtain knowledge and skills in modeling, design, synthesis and research of optoelectronic devices and materials with a focus on one of the following three subjects :
    development of new materials with special mechanical, electrical, magnetic and optical properties and materials with hybrid properties;
    development of semiconductor photonic nanostructures used in lasers, LEDs, quantum sensors and solar cells;
    research of promising materials for waveguide photonics, nonlinear, diffraction, interference, biomedical, femtosecond and display optics.


    The development and improvement of optoelectronic devices, electronic engineering and laser technology is impossible without materials with unique physical properties. Such materials are part of creating photonic structures used in efficient devices for storing data, communications, and computational tools, as well as the development of energy-efficient technologies. As the associated research and the implementation of modern materials is conducted within the framework of of global projects, the training of Master's students is conducted in English with participation of ITMO's Russian and international partners.


    The program's key purpose is training highly qualified specialists in the field of promising photonics materials and technologies, including modern nanomaterials and nanotechnologies of photonics and optoinformatics.


    The students can do internships and apply for jobs as engineers at ITMO's Research Center for Nanophotonics and Optoinformatics.  They can also do internships at such enterprises as LOMO JSC, S.I. Vavilov State Optical Institute JSC, the Ioffe Institute, the Cometa Corporation, and I. V. Grebenshchikov Institute of Silicate Chemistry as engineers, technicians and laboratory assistants.
