Laboratory of Surface Processes Under Irradiation
Head of Laboratory:
Doctor of Science (Physics and Mathematics)
professor Andrei Petrovich Zakharov
Main directions of research:
Ion-beam-induced and plasma-induced atomic processes and structural-phase transformations on the surface and in the near-surface layers of solids. These phenomena include adsorption, diffusion, accumulation and release of hydrogen isotopes and helium in metals and graphite materials; influence of radiation-induced defects on these processes; phase transformations in interstitial alloys (hydrides, carbides, oxides); elementary chemical reactions involving the collisions of hydrocarbon radicals with solid surfaces; plasmachemical vapor-phase deposition of thin films and coatings.
Ultrahigh-vacuum system (VG Scientific, UK) for the treatmentand analysis of solid surfaces
