Welcome head of the department of molecular physics academician Leonid Anatolievich Ukraine Bulavina being awarded the State Prize of Ukraine in Science and Technology in 2011 for a series of scientific papers “Quantum effects and block self-organization in the new multifunctional nanomaterials.”
The cycle of scientific works consists of 3 books and 136 scientific articles published in refereed journals. His research is forming the core of the unique properties of new carbon nanomaterials: fullerite, carbon nanotubes, graphene.
Authors cycle includes several new world-class results, such as theoretical predictions of new effects in the conductivity of graphene; Observation negative thermal expansion of fullerite at low temperatures, indicating the nature of the tunnel rotational states of molecules C60; comprehensive study aggregation processes of fullerene clusters in water and other liquids; offer new molecular interface that the enzyme is immobilized on the carbon nanotube; establish that for composites based on nanotubes and liquid crystal matrix in an external electric field observed effect electro-optical memory, which is caused by self-organization.
It is proved that the sign and magnitude of roto-electric effect in films of C60 depends on the rotational state of the molecule driven by competition and the two types of disorder – static and dynamic. The theory of electron spectrum in intermetallic compounds and nano-composites taking into account the strong correlation carriers. Novel carbon-magnesium nanocomposites that can accumulate up to 5 wt.% Hydrogen, etc.
The results of the cycle not only enriched the basic science new knowledge, but also created a solid scientific basis for the practical use of new nanomaterials in nanotechnology, nanoelectronics, sensorytsi, solar energy, medicine and so on.
Works cited authors in more than 2200 scientific and applied scientific journals. On the subject defended 2 doctoral and master’s theses 9
