Areas of Expertise:

  • Physics and Hydrodynamics of Magnetic Liquids (Ferrofluids): basic equations; magnetoviscosity (positive and negative contributions); magnetization relaxation; magnetic resonance in nanoparticles, formation of magnetic particle chains. Critical phenomena: surface instability; convective instability: influence of magnetophoresis and Soret effect; chain-globule phase transition.
  • Hydrodynamics of Liquid Paramagnetics: basic equations; intertwinement of Einstein-de-Haas and Barnett effects; convective instability in liquids with gyromagnetic properties.
  • Critical Phenomena in Hydrodynamics and Magnetohydrodynamics: hydrodynamic fluctuations near the onset of convection; convective instability of conductive fluids in magnetic fields, rotating fluids, colloids stratified by gravity; onset of wave resistance as a critical phenomenon.
  • Liquid-Crystalline Polymers: interdependence of orientational ordering and mechanical properties; kinetics of isotropic-nematic phase transition; influence of the length and elasticity of macromolecules on the phase transitions.
