Institute of Materials Science was known as Institute of Physical Electronics till Feb 1, 2010. The Institute of Physical Electronics was founded in 1994 after the reorganization of the Scientific Center of Semiconductor Microelectronics "Microlira" of Kaunas Institute of Radio Measurement Technique. In 2003, the Institute was reorganized into a Research Institute, having the status of the University Institute. Functions of the founder were entrusted to Kaunas University of Technology. Institute was fully integrated into Kaunas University of Technology by resolution of Government of Lithuania in 2010. Currently the Institute of Physical Electronics, has 31 employers and houses facilities of a total area of 1100 m2 located in the city of Kaunas in Lithuania. The activities of the Institute are permanently directed toward scientific research and applied works, development of new advanced technologies. The research activities are carried out in collaboration with the scientific laboratories and departments of Kaunas University of Technology, with other Universities, scientific institutions and industrial partners of Lithuania. The Institute is equipped with up-to-day scientific technological and analytical equipment. It makes possible to carry out research in the fields of solid-state physics, surface analysis, microelectronics, materials science and chemical analysis. The staff of the Institute participates in the studies process of the University. They deliver lectures cycles for the students; together with the departments prepare and carry out laboratory works. M.Sc. and Ph.D. students of the University are involved in the research of the Institute.
