Research interests:

Fields of interest:

Theoretical and experimental investigation of local atomic geometry and electronic structure in various types of condensed matter including:

  • geological materials, 
  • nanostructures (quantum dots, nanoclusters, nanoalloys).

Effects and properties under the study:

  • 3D local atomic structure of complex condensed materials,
  • electronic structure (density of states and fine details of hybridization of electronic states) of condensed materials.

Methods of investigation:

  • Experimental X-ray absorption (X-ray Absorption Near Edge Structure – XANES and Extended X-ray Absorption Fine Structure - EXAFS) studies.  
  • Full multiple scattering XANES/ELNES simulations (FEFF9, G4XANES program codes) • Non-muffin-tin finite difference method for XANES simulations (FDMNES code).  
  • Full-potential band structure calculations (Wien2k code).  
  • Density functional theory (DFT) using pseudopotentials (VASP code) • Advanced DFT quantum chemistry calculations (ADF code).
