Current Research Activities
The main scientific achievements are associated with the investigation of inelastic phenomena in solids due to imperfect crystal structure. Pioneering work has been done on experimental study of dislocational shape-memory physical mechanism in real solids and in the field of self-organizing dislocational ensembles under various types of thermal and physical influence, under radiation, hydrogenation and deuteration of metals.
Effect of anomalous mild temperature sintering of powder materials was discovered in the course of their inelastic properties study. This result in addition to its fundamental scientific significance has a grate practical importance.
A good part of the research is devoted to the study of structure and optical properties of integrated optics elements. First of all it concerns the monocrystals of lithium niobate and tantalite alloyed with hydrogen and titanium. The unknown previously phase states have been discovered in these crystals. The results obtained are of great fundamental significance but practical importance is also great because they pave the way to the serial production of highly stable fiber-optics gyroscopes being the base of avionics for both civil and military aviation, sea navigation and for various modern missile and artillery weapon systems.
In these latter days Professor Volyntsev supervises applied research activities on new cheap nanomodified construction materials with improved properties.
