Vadim Grigorievich Manzhelii 

(1933-2013)

 Vadim Grigorievich Manzhelii, physicist, Doctor of Physics & Mathematics (1970), professor (1972), Full Member of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (1990), Honored Science & Engineering Researcher of Ukraine (1998), Honorary Professor of the Institute of Low Temperature and Structure Research of Polish Academy of Sciences (2004), winner of State Prize of Ukraine (1977), USSR State Prize (1978), B.I.Verkin Prize of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (2000).

V.G.Manzhelii, born in Kharkov 3d May, 1933, graduated from Kharkov State University (1955), worked as an assistant lecturer at Kharkov State University (1955 - 1960). Since 1960 he is a researcher at B.I.Verkin Institute for Low Temperature Physics & Engineering of the NAS of Ukraine. V.G.Manzhelii was the head of the Department for thermal properties of molecular crystals at this Institute (from 1962 to2007), is the chief researcher (2007-2013).

The main scientific interest is concerned with the thermal properties of solids and disordered systems (cryocrystals, quantum crystals, high-frozen biological objects, fullerites, gas hydrates, solid monoatomic alcohols, carbon nanotubes).

V.G.Manzhelii and collaborators have studied the effects of zero orientational oscillations, rotational motion and orientational disordering of molecules upon the thermal properties of solid gases (cryocrystals). The glass-like behavior of cryocrystal solutions and many new impurity-induced effects have been detected and investigated in the thermal properties of crystals at low temperatures. The kinetic and equilibrium properties of quantum molecular crystals have been studied and quantum diffusion detected in solid deuterium. Negative thermal expansion of fullerite C60 has been revealed at helium temperatures. Nuclear spin conversion has been detection in CD4. Polyamorphism of orientational glasses has been found. Glass-like behavior of the thermal conductivity of clathrate hydrates has been detected in a wide interval of temperatures (2-200 K).

A significant decrease in helium transfer by a superfluid film at the solid parahydrogen surface has been found.
