The Institute practices fundamental and applied research in the fields of

  optical security technologies

      laser physics


The Institute conducts fundamental research on the physics of light diffraction, digital holography, recording media, laser solitons, and photonic crystals.

The Institute created a bank of high-quality master holograms of historical relics from Ukrainian museums and organized a traveling holographic exhibition that was successfully exposed in Ukraine and abroad.  

The Specialized Enterprise "Holography" was established with the participation of the Institute, the main purpose of which is the development and mass production of holographic protective elements for documents and goods.
