The department was founded in 1955year Valitov R.A. as the Department of Radio Measurements for measuring the radiation power of ultra-high frequencies.
Scientific directions: quantum generators of infrared and submillimeter wavelengths and their application in plasma diagnostics and semiconductors, study of biological objects; molecular radiospectroscopy in ranges of millimeter and submillimeter wavelengths; Rydberg atom spectroscopy; measuring of the space-energy and polarization parameters of wide-aperture laser radiation.
The teaching staff includes 4 professors, 4 associate professors and 2 laboratory assistants. In addition to regular teachers the educational process provides an Academician of NASU and 2 professors.
Department of Quantum Radiophysics is the initiator and organizer of international conferences, IEEE / PHO in modern optoelectronics and lasers CAOL / LFNM held since 1999.
