Department of Optical-Electronic Devices and Systems

Head of the department:
Valeriy Korotaev

Graduates of the Department OEDS are focused on the research and development of optoelectronic devices and systems as a whole, including:

  • systems engineering and design,

  • development (selection) of the optical system,

  • development design,

  • development (selection) electronics and information processing

  • software development,

  • assembly, adjustment, tuning and testing.

Students of the Department are involved in the actual research and development work to create video information systems of visible and infrared optical radiation, multispectral systems, laser ranging systems.

Modern developments of OEDS Department, in which students took part, were exhibited at All-Russian Exhibition in 2011, and were awarded medals of National Exhibition Center.

Optical-electronic Devices and Systems (OEDS) is a harmonious combination of optical, electronic and computing devices.

OEDS provides:

  • Optical radiation-measuring over a wide spectral range;

  • Signal conversion from optical into electrical form;

  • Signal processing using the latest computers and computing techniques;

  • Information presentation in a mode perceptible by the human eye (displays, reference scales etc);

  • Generation of the signals of monitoring of various processes.

OEDS makes possible:

  • Supervision of industrial technological processes and check of the production quality;

  • Provision of intrusion protection and alarm signals in the systems of protection and safety;

  • High volume data transfer using fibre-optic lines in communication systems;

  • Environmental monitoring of specific objects (rivers, lakes, city districts, industrial plants, roads, etc.) and extended areas among others with use of the aviation and satellite tracking systems;

  • Biological sample analysis, medicine diagnosis and physiotherapeutic treatment;

  • Co-ordinate measurement and positioning of space stations and guiding aircraft in aviation, missile and space technology;

  • Watching, recording and reproducing video information using home video equipment;

  • Recording and reproducing the information with use of the optical information carriers (CD, DVD) - in computer engineering.

In 2002 an admission was opened for the first time to the specialization Optical-Electronic Devices and Systems for the Video Information Processing. This specialization includes the following disciplines:

  • Principles of video information writing and reproduction;

1936 - creation of the Department of military optical devices

1958 - reorganization into the Department of special optical devices,

1967 - reorganization into the Department of optical-electronic devices,

1992 - renamed into the Department of optical-electronic devices and systems.

Nowadays the OEDS Department has at its disposal seven student teaching laboratories, computer classroom with Internet access. Highly skilled teachers work at the Department, among them are seven professors, doctors of sciences and 8 associate professors with PhDs. The structure of the Department includes a research and production laboratory named Optical-Electronic Systems.

The Department carries out scientific research and developments in the following areas:

  • The theory of the OEDS;

  • Mathematical methods, algorithms and software for the OEDS computer design;

  • Methods for the information processing by means of the opto-electronics;

  • Creation of the new high precision OEDS;

  • Development of the OEDS for the monitoring environmentally dangerous objects, media as well as for the running environmental monitoring.
