SUBJECT: EXTRANCHECK: POST-SHIPMENT VERIFICATION:
RASSIAN ACADEMY OF SCIENCES (RAS) INSTITUTE OF SOLID
STATE PHYSICS, CHERNOGOLOVKA, MOSCOW, RUSSIA, LICENSE
NO. D358874

REFTEL: USDOC 00114

1. Unauthorized disclosure of the information provided
below is prohibited by Section 12C of the Export
Administration Act.

2. Reftel requested a Post-shipment verification to
determine the legitimacy and reliability of the end-
user, RAS Institute of Solid Physics, Chernogolovka,
Moscow, Russia. The company is listed on BIS license
application D358874 as the ultimate consignee of two
millimeter source model E8257DS08 and E8257DS12. These
items are controlled for national security and anti-
terrorism reasons under ECCN 3A002. The licensee is
Agilent Technologies, Inc., 1666 K st., N.W. Suite
420, Washington DC. 20006.

3. On January 18, 2008, Export Control Attache Peter
Liston and LES Natalya Shipitsina conducted the
requested post-shipment verification with RAS
Institute of Solid Physics, Institutsky pr., 15,
Chernogolovka, Moscow, Russia. The export control team
met with Vladimir Kulakovsky, Deputy General Director
and Alexander Levchenko, Deputy Director. ECO Liston
discussed the license conditions with Kulakovsky and
Levchenko, as mention in reftel.

4. The Institute of Solid State Physics (ISSP) was
organized in 15 February, 1963 by the USSR Academy of
Sciences in order to realize an optimal combination
and interplay of fundamental studies in condensed
matter physics and materials science. ISSP is one of
the leading institutions in the Russian Academy of
Sciences. The Institute is the base for a number of
departments of Moscow State University, the Moscow
Physical-Technical Institute, and the Moscow Institute
of Steel and Alloys. Students from many other Russian
institutions of higher education obtain practical
research experience at the Institute.

5. The devices in reftel are used to study a
microwave response from semiconductor hetro-structures
with two-dimensional (2D) electron systems in a high
magnetic field at liquid helium temperatures, all
within the field of fundamental research of Solid
State Physics.

6. The ECO Moscow team was shown two (2) millimeter
source MOD, model no.'s E8257DS08 and E8257DS12,
located in a secure lab with limited access.

7. ECO Moscow made a previous PSV visit to RAS/ISSP
on May 11, 2007 (Moscow 02685) for verification of a
90GHZ to 140GHZ millimeter source module, model no
S08MS-AG with serial no. 60821-1 and a 60GHZ to 90GHZ
millimeter source module, model S12MS-AG, serial
number 61002-1. The current ECO Moscow team again
verified both units on January 18, 2008.

8. Recommendations: Post recommends RAS Institute of
Solid Physics, Chernogolovka, Russia as a reliable
recipient of sensitive U.S. origin commodities.
