The Shubnikov Institute of Crystallography of the
Russian Academy of Sciences (IC RAS) was
officially given the name of its founder and first director, Full Member of the
USSR Academy of Sciences Professor Aleksei Vasil'evich Shubnikov, in 1971. In
1969, the Institute was awarded the Order of Red Banner of Labor.
The Institute is located in Moscow in buildings on Leninskii pr. 59 and ul.
Butlerova 17a and has a division (Research Center for Space
Materials Science) in the city of Kaluga.
The Institute Management and its departments are located in the Main Building.
Research is traditionally performed along three main directions-crystal
growth, crystal structure, and crystal properties. Recently, great attention is
also paid to developing the scientific program and the mathematic apparatus and
methods for using synchrotron-radiation sources located in the Moscow oblast for
structural studies of various organic and inorganic materials.
The information on the Institute of Crystallography is given in two languages
Russian and English. These two versions are not
always identical, but both provide the same information on the major
research directions and
achievements of the institute. The Internet site allows
one to get acquainted with the institute structure, its
history and achievements, and its major
publications. One can also find information on the
international cooperation of the Institute and its
participation in the organization of various scientific
conferences and seminars. The Section
«News» (currently in Russian) provides the recent data on current
