Although the physical phenomena and processes observed in the new materials and nanostructures are described in the framework of well-established fundamental concepts of quantum and classical physics, they could not become an object of study of traditional training courses on condensed matter physics, which were created in the middle of the twentieth century, simply because most of these facilities and adequate measurement tools for their research were not yet developed.
