Research interests include wide research of physicochemical structure of solid state and connection to physical, chemical and spectroscopic properties, especially in low temperatures. Institute’s specialty are investigations of magnetic 5f- and 4f -electron systems, superconductors, physics of phase transitions and molecular spectroscopy.

The main tasks of the Institute are: conducting scientific research (mostly basic, pre-application studies); scientific training of researchers and specialists with qualifications connected with Institute’s interests and used research methods; cooperation with universities and colleges in teaching duties; smoothing the way of applying of the obtained results; supporting of the governmental units in metrological duties; and popularization of knowledge connected with Institute’s interests. Institute Scientific Council has rights to award PhD and PhD hab. Degrees in physics and chemistry.
