The investigations of the laboratory was financially supported by Bulgarian National Science Fund through many projects in different fields. Three of the projects were under the Programme “Promotion of innovations in small and medium enterprises”.

The laboratory participated in a number of bilateral projects under the Academy exchange programmes with: Poland – Institute of Physics of Jagellonian University, Krakow and Institute of Fluid Flow Machinery – PAN, Gdansk; Russia – FIAN, Moscow and Tomsk State University; China – State Key Laboratory of Quantum Optics and Quantum Optics Devices, Shanxi University; Belgium – University of Antwerpen; The Netherlands – Technical University of Eindhoven; Hungary – KFKI; Germany – Ruhr University, Bochum.

Scientists of the laboratory are working in joint projects with scientist from  France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Romania, Russia,  UK, etc.
