Institute of Nanotechnologies of Microelectronics of the Russian Academy of Sciences was established by the Decree of the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences and is affiliated by the Presidium of RAS which is in charge of methodical and scientific administration of the Institute.

Yuri V. Gulyaev, Member of RAS, was appointed Executive Director by the Presidium of the RAS to organize and establish the Institute, which he headed until December 2009.

In December 2009 Alexander N. Saurov, Corresponding Member of RAS, was elected the Director of the Institute by Decree No. 324 of the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences (22 December 2009).⁠

Our Mission

The Mission of the Institute is to study problems and prospects of developing nanotechnology in microelectronics, to generate analytical, statistical, methodological and forecast information for the management of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation, the RAS and Government Agencies of the Russian Federation.

In pursuance of the mission the Institute carries out the following:

  • contribute to development and improvement of state policy-making mechanisms in the field of nanotechnology;
  • build research infrastructure and develop fundamental research in the advanced areas of science and technology which determine the progress of nanotechnology in microelectronics;
  • monitor physical and technological aspects for implementing advanced nano-scale element base in microelectronic devices;
  • design high-tech integrated complexes for hyperlocal diagnostics and modification of nanomaterials and nanostructures physical properties;
  • develop TMDE methods and equipment to be used for creating and studying nanotechnology element base of microelectronic devices.
