Main research areas

Fundamental research:

  • High energy physics and study of spin effects occurring in particles in electro-magnetic and gravitational fields.
  • Computer simulations of carbon nanostructures and their derivatives. Study of carbon nanostructures (nanotubes, nanocrystals, fullerenes, carboranes and their derivatives), that are the main elements of biosensors and precursors of anticancer materials, physical-chemical methods and methods of molecular dynamics and quantum chemistry.
  • Quantum chemical simulation of chemical properties of nanostructures (NV- centers in diamond as a base for quantum computer, quantum cryptography devices, magnetometers for biological objects, single photon sources).
  • Study of spin relaxation in solid state matter.

Applied research:

  • Medical physics:
    • Computer simulation of patient radiation doses during diagnostic radiology,
    • Radiation protection of radiotherapy patients,
    • Dose reconstruction from incorporated radionuclides in human thyroid and whole body after Chernobyl accident.
  • Monte-Carlo simulation of instruments for nuclear physics: dosimeters, radiometers, scintillation spectrometers of ionizing radiation, whole-body counters (WBC) to measure spectrum of ionizing radiation in human body, neutron diffractometers
    for materials science, devices for measurement of neutron flux in a nuclear reactor core.
  • Development of mathematical methods and use of computer programs to calculate steady state mode and transient regimes (including accident situations) of WWER-type nuclear reactors.
