Physics of Functional Materials

The research focuses on studying the physics of functional materials by experimental and theoretical methods. Materials and topics cover a broad spectrum ranging from multiferroics, confinement effects in nanoporous systems, photosensitive materials, highly nonlinear behavior of minerals at extreme pressure, the formation and dynamics of domain walls, metal-hydrogen systems, and nanocomposites (liquid crystal–elastomer, polymer–nanoparticle, elastomer–carbon, liquid crystal–polymer).
