Main scientific fields
The research field of the department covers a broad area
of fundamental problems within magnetic properties of metals, intermetallic
compounds and alloys.
Studies of magnetization and magnetic susceptibility in localized
and itinerant magnetic systems under high pressure, including rare-earths
Investigations of structural defects with magnetic methods.
Study of elastic properties of solids.
Studies of uniaxial compression effects on magnetic properties
in anisotropic magnetic materials.
Magnetostriction in magnetic and superconducting compounds.
Experimental and theoretical investigations of anomalous
conduction electrons diamagnetism.
First-principles calculations of the electronic structure
and magnetic properties of metallic systems and semiconductors.
Theoretical studies of magnetic structure of solids.
diamagnetism was discovered in metals and compounds, related to topological
studied anisotropic magnetic properties of HCP iron in the Earth inner
core, and its possible relation to the seismic anisotropy of Earth.
investigations of electronic structure, stability, magnetic and electro-chemical
properties of potential lithium batteries based on Mn oxides.
elastic properties of super hard materials, such as transition metals dioxides
effect on exchange interactions and band structure was found in highly
enhanced itinerant paramagnets and weak ferromagnets, based on 3d-elements,
rare-earths and actinides.
properties of concentrated Kondo systems were studied.
magnetovolume effects in new superconductors FeSe (Te).
