Current Research Activities
Scope of scientific interests – theory and practice of Phase transitions in condensed matters.
The main trend of research activities is connected with the problem of Hydrogen interaction with metals and alloys. For the first time has been formulated the concept of synergic effects of metal microplasticity under joint effect of stress field and diffusion flux of hydrogen and deuterium. The regularities of force gradient and concentration field effect on the change of structure and properties of crystalline, amorphous and nanocrystal metallic materials were established. Has been discovered and studied the transformation plasticity effect and the effect of shape-memory in thermodynamically open metal-hydrogen systems (metals of IVа and Vа groups of Periodic Table of Elements), and also an isotropic effect in these phenomena. Anomalies were discovered in the changes of elastic constants of hydrogen saturated fast quenched alloys of ТiNi-TiCu systems in crystalline, amorphous-crystalline and amorphous states.
The nature of synergic effects of hydrogen interaction with metals and alloys has been revealed. The concept of metal and metallic alloy amorphization under the effect of hydrogen has been justified. This has opened the prospect of hydrogen targeting effect on material structure. To one of the latest developments of the kind should be attributed a unique opportunity to control the martensite transformation in metallic systems based on titanium nickelide under the influence of hydrogen.
Over the last years a number of works devoted to the applied aspects of newly developed materials based on reversible hydride transformations were written. Presently the main research trend is connected with the development of the new generation nanostructured materials for ecologically friendly hydrogen sources of energy.
