Usikov Institute for Radiophysics and Electronics of the NAS of Ukraine.  From 1983 to 1996 the collected articles were published as a subject scientific and technical collection on the problem of mastering millimeter and submillimeter ranges. And from 1996 to 2009 they were published as a periodical collection of scientific papers called “Radiophysics and Electronics”.
