About us
The Institute of Optical Materials and Technologies (IOMT) “Academician Jordan Malinovski” has been established on July 1, 2010 by merging two research units: The Central Laboratory of Photo-processes and The Central Laboratory of Optical Recording and Processing of Information.

The main research goals of the institute are:
⁕ Investigation of photo-induced processes in micro- and nano-sized layers and structures and to develop high-technology novel materials and methods for optical applications in flexible transparent electronics, ecology, biomedicine, food industry, non-destructive testing and cultural heritage protection;
⁕ Training of highly qualified personnel in these areas. Training of graduates and postgraduates;
⁕ Carrying out interdisciplinary research and joint projects with experts from other research units;
⁕ Implementation of the scientific product through innovation and knowledge transfer to industry.

Staff: professors (3), associate professors (12), assistant professors (14), doctors of sciences (2), PhDs (24).◊
