Research areas

Synthesis and structural characterization of amorphous, glass-crystalline and polycrystalline materials for optics, optoelectronics, waste storage and catalysis applications.

  • Development of new glass compositions with the participation of non-traditional glass formers – МоО3, WO3, Nb2O3.
  • Investigation the tendency of immiscibility of the liquids and the consequences of their occurrence.
  • Study of thermal behavior of new amorphous, polycrystalline and hybrid materials.
  • Crystallization kinetics of amorphous materials.
