Research area: Condensed Matter Physics.            List of publications


 Is specialized in the field of the low temperature physics of normal and superconducting metals, and
 the physics of crystallization of the amorphous substances (glasses). Has elucidated the nature of the
 thermal resistivity of the metal-insulator boundary. On the basis of these findings has predicted a number
 of new effects in metallic films at low temperatures. Has developed a theory of the non-stationary
 nonlinear dynamics of the thermal
switching waves in homogeneous and non-homogeneous superconductors.
 The theory of the quasistationary explosive decay within the frameworks of the thermal 
wavefront
 
bistability for the configurationally frozen metastable substance states has been formulated for the first time.
 Has considered a wide field of problems of the non-linear anisotropic vortex dynamics in superconductors
 in the presence of a planar pinning potential, and in the case of its competition with a point-like disorder.
 All the investigations have been closely connected with experimentalists carrying out the appropriate experimental
 research, in particular, with researches from the Low Temperature Physics Department, V. N. Karazin KhNU;
 Kharkiv Insitute of Physics and Technology;
B. I. Verkin Insitute for Low Temperature Physics and Engineering;
 
. Usikov Institute of Radio Physics and Electronics; Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz;
 
Goethe-University Frankfurt am Main; Instytut Fizyki Polskiej Akademii Nauk.

 
 Member of the Scientific Council of the
O. I. Akhizer Institute for Theoretical Physics, NSC-KIPT.
 Member of the Specialized
Scientific Council of the B. I. Verkin Insitute for Low Temperature Physics and Engineering.
 
Member of the Specialized Scientific Council of the O. I. Akhizer Institute for Theoretical Physics, NSC-KIPT.
 Total number of publications exceeds 80. Has supervised 3 PhD students.

 Main achievements:

            1. Has for the first time suggested a dislocation model of ferromagnetism in nonmagnetic crystals
                which successively explained experimental results in this field [ Sov. Phys. JETP 28 (1969) 590 ].

            2. Has considered the non-stationary microscopic theory of the dynamics of hot electrons in thin
                metal films at low temperatures  [ JETP 84 (1997) 1149, LTP 39 (2013) 357 and refs therein ].

            3. Has analyzed the effect of electron overheating on the Larkin-Ovchinnikov flux-flow vortex
                instability in the mixed state of superconductors  [ Physica C 202 (1992) 234 ]

            4. Has developed a theory for the non-stationary nonlinear dynamics of switching heat
                waves in homogeneous and non-homogeneous  superconductors ( 1984-1986)

            5. Has theoretically solved an extensive series of problems in the field of nonlinear and
                non-stationary anisotropic dynamics of Abrikosov vortices in nanostructured thin films
                and HTSC crystals at finite temperatures
