General Information

The physical and mathematical sciences have been one of Kharkiv V. N. Karazin National University's strengths from the beginning. The Department of Space Radio Physics is the youngest constituent department in the School of Radio Physics. It admitted its first students in 1964.

Research in the department is conducted in the following two fields:
(1) space research and
(2) astronomy research.
Students are free to choose one of these areas,
space research or astronomy.

The space research branch was established in 1964 by Prof. V. A. Misyura.

The astronomy branch was established in 1976 by Prof. L. N. Litvinenko http://rian.kharkov.ua/index.php/en/. The astronomy research is conducted in the Institute of Radio Astronomy, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine  (4 Krasnoznamennaya St., Kharkiv, 61002 Ukraine).

The Department now occupies a few spacious rooms in the main building of Kharkiv V. N. Karazin National University at the center of Kharkiv and operates Radiophysical Observatory. The Radiophysical Observatory is a unique facility in Ukraine allowing observations of ionospheric features and response over an altitude range from ~60 to 1000 km to be made simultaneously with magnetometer measurements.

The department's reputation is grounded in its research work. The creativity and enthusiasm of Department's staff generates an international reputation in major areas of research including radio wave propagation, ionospheric and space physics.

Kharkiv V. N. Karazin National University's Radiophysical Observatory, located approximately 50 km south of Kharkiv city, is a nationally sponsored facility for research and development in near-Earth space environment physics. The Radiophysical Observatory employs 41 persons.

The Radiophysical Observatory is located on a 50-acre delightful green hilltop overlooking the Donets River near Gaydary settlement. An Affiliate of the Radiophysical Observatory is located on the site of the Ukrainian HF Radio Telescope of the Institute for Radio Astronomy at Grakovo settlement where the Department occupies a few rooms.

The faculty has published about thirty textbooks. The latest textbooks

1. Statistical Radio Physics, Part I, Basic Probability Concepts, The ABC of Random Functions, Westi Press Publishers, 2007, 189 pp., by A. A. Minakov and O. F. Tyrnov,
2. Statistical Radio Physics, Part II, Fluctuation Phenomena in Radio Engineering and the Basics of Statistical Theory of Radiowave Propagation, Westi Press Publishers, 2007, 196 pp., by A. A. Minakov and O. F. Tyrnov,
3. Statistical Radio Physics, Part III, The Effect of Random Inhomogeneities on Radiowave Propagation and Scattering, Westi Press Publishers, 2007, 194 pp., by A. A. Minakov and O. F. Tyrnov,

have been planned for MS and Ph.D. students and as reference books for researchers.

Over the years, the
Statistical Radio Physics course was taught by Prof. Bliokh P. V., Prof. Tyrnov O.F., Prof. Fuks I. M., and Prof. Minakov A. A.

The Department has a student/faculty ratio of 1/3.

Each BS/MS/PhD student is assigned to a personal Supervisor who has overall responsibility for the students training and research. In addition, each student has a named instructor from research staff to whom they can turn for specific advice and guidance and who helps to monitor their progress.

The thesis titles of recent and current postgraduate student include:

Modern analysis and processing of the ultra-wideband processes (Doctor of Science)

(Dr. Oleg V. Lazorenko)

Variations in the Statistical Characteristics of MF Radar Signals Caused by Mesospheric Dynamical Processes

Konstantin.P.Garmash@univer.kharkov.ua)

The Department comprises a group of talented and dedicated physicists, which means we can offer a caring tutorial system a friendly atmosphere in which to learn alongside gifted practitioners.

The Department promotes the professional development of students, outreach activities and balance between observations, modeling, analysis programs, and instrumentation development.
