Research focuses

  • Developing luminescent nanostructured materials with a high quantum efficiency (lanthanoid-based up- and down-converters) for application in medicine, thermometry, photocatalysis, photovoltaics, forensics and document protection
  • Developing rechargeable batteries based on mixed lithium oxides/salts with transition metals; as well as the study of the potential for the intercalation of lithium, sodium and other ions into aqueous and organic (aprotic) electrolytes
  • Designing physical-chemical-biological properties of advanced hybrid scaffolds and composites based on calcium phosphate and biopolymers, and multifunctional coatings on metal substrates for tissue engineering
  • Examination of electrochemical and corrosion properties of various alloys and electroconductive polymers
  • Developing optical and fiber-optic sensors, and methods for the optical characterization of materials
  • Modelling, simulation and optimization of power plants, and the development of methods for measuring the parameters of photovoltaic components for efficiency monitoring and production forecasting
  • Developing stochastic measurement methods and integer protection codes in various digital systems
