  • Studied the electrophysical properties of thin films based on oxides of a number of transition metals, in particular vanadium dioxide, developed a technique for obtaining structurally perfect stoichiometric films of vanadium dioxide, investigated the dependence of the properties of the films on the nature of the substrate, the conditions of ion-assisted deposition and oxidation, proposed a model of interaction of gas - solid for the studied structures.
  • Conducted studies of the chemical and electrochemical behavior of snacks reaction of diamond synthesis in an acidic oxidizing environments (nitrate, chromic acid media, ozone), evaluated the influence of nature and concentration of oxidant on the rate of chemical and electrochemical oxidation of the metal components of the alloys, as well as the possibility of formation, the stability of various valence forms of the metals and the probability of changing the state of aggregation.
  • The method for detecting gas mixtures and thin-film semiconductor gas sensor has been developed.

The obtained results were implemented in the educational process, course and diploma design performed at the Department.
