The main areas of scientific activity and theoretical investigations are:
thermodynamics and kinetics of quantum crystals, HeHe solid solutions, atomic
and molecular cryocrystals (among them twodimensional cryocrystalline systems
on substrate) as well as quantum magnet systems. Current topics of research
interests are also theory of crystal lattice defects as well as acoustic and
electromagnetic emission during plastic deformation of imperfect crystals.
Quantum Crystals
Thermodynamics of solid helium mixtures. A consistent theory was developed
for description of the temperature dependences of separating helium solid
solutions heat capacity at arbitrary concentrations both below and above . It
was shown that at the temperature behavior of the heat capacity is completely
defined by correlation effects in the impurity subsystem.
Kinetics of cryocrystals. The evolution of the heterophase structure of a
dilute solid solution He in He was studied theoretically. Relaxation processes
in solid He–He solutions was shown to be controlled by the mobility of the phase
boundaries, whose velocity is determined by the quantum diffusion parameters for
impurity He in the matrix of He.
The quantum mechanical problem of inelastic phonon scattering on a quadrupole
defect (orthoH pair complex in the parahydrogen matrix) was solved. The
contribution of this mechanism to the lowtemperature thermal conductivity was
discussed.
Thermodynamics of cryocrystals with molecular imporities. A rigorous analytic
theory was developed to describe temperature and concentration dependences of
the excess impurity heat capacity of dilute solid solutions of diatomic
molecules in a rare gas matrix. The theory is in excellent agreement with the
experiment in the wide range of temperatures and concentrations.
Magnetism of 2D He monolayers. Within the Heisenberg model the theoretical
approach was developed to describe thermodynamic and magnetic properties of the
second He layer solid on graphite. It was proved the pure Heisenberg behavior of
2D solid He in the ferromagnetic regime. The proposed theory is in excellent
agreement with the experimental data for all the temperatures.
Dynamics and thermodynamics of twodimensional cryocrystals. Lowtemperature
dynamics and thermodynamics of twodimensional monoatomic crystals with
triangular lattice was investigated theoretically. The phonon spectra and
lowtemperature heat capacity were calculated analytically for monolayer
structures both commensurate and incommensurate with the substrate. The obtained
theoretical results provide an explanation for a great variety of experimental
data on the spectra of lattice excitations and thermal properties of rare gas
and helium monolayers on graphite and metal substrates.
The dynamical interaction of translational and rotational degrees of freedom
of a diatomic homonuclear substitutional impurity placed in 2D closepacked
atomic matrix on a substrate is investigated theoretically. It is shown that the
translationalrotational interaction drastically changes inertial properties of
the impurity as compared to a free rotator. Namely, this interaction leads to a
strong modification of the kinetic energy operator as well as to renormalization
of the crystal field parameters. Such effects can be manifested in the
rotational spectrum and the impurity heat capacity of the system at low
temperatures.
