Main directions of studies

  • Structural investigations of magnetics and superconductors at low temperatures.
  • Magnetostriction phenomena in magnetics and superconductors in the region of low temperature phase transitions.
  • Nanotubes of the transition metals dichalcogenides.

Main principal results, recently obtained

Identification and investigation of quantum magnetization and magnetostriction oscillations in the mixed state of superconductors.

Revealing of the twining structure appearance under formation of the antiferromagnetic dielectric phase in  Nd0.5Sr0.5MnO3 manganite.

The complex study of the effect of irradiation by fast electrons on the structural and magnetic properties of 2H-NbSe2.

Obtaining of the reproducible closed nanoformations of 2H-NbSe2 (nanotubes and nanowires).

Development and construction of the autonomous compact helium combi-cryostat for X-ray studies in temperature region 10-300 K.

Detection and explanation of the low-temperature anomalies of thermal expansion in EuBaCuO compounds along the c crystal axis, substantially below the Debye temperature.

Experimental equipment 

    X-rays diffractometer equipped with a low temperature chamber compatible with originally designed cryostat intended for measurements in stationary magnetic fields up to 5 T at 10 - 300 K and helium combi cryostat (bath + continuous flow) for all kinds of X-ray measurements in temperature region 10 - 300 K (sample in vacuum).
    URS-55 X-ray apparatus.
