The investigations in the field of quantum theory of solids at ICMP are active since 70ss and first were aimed to develop the phase transitions theory as well as to describe the various phenomena in ferroelectric materials with the help of microscopic models with short-range interactions utilizing X-operators approach R. Levitskii, I. V Stasyuk. One of the first accomplishments was the development of microscopic theory of induced optical effects in dielectric crystals electrooptical and piezooptical effects, electro and piezo-gyration, magneto-optical effect that helped to describe and predict the anomalies of optical properties in the vicinity of structural and ferroelectric phase transitions I.
