The key area of academic interests is about electronic properties of strongly anisotropic conductors that cover all high-temperature superconductors under the atmospheric pressure, heterostructures, organic metals and many other compounds. The following academic results were obtained in this area:
- Magnetoresistance and quantum oscillations.
- For the first time, the theory of magnetoresistance in strongly anisotropic conductors [Phys. Rev. B 67, 144401 (2003); Phys. Rev. B 98, 045118 (2018)] was developed, where the integral of the interlayer electronic transaction is comparable to, or falls below, the cyclotron energy. To that extent, the traditional theory for ordinary metals becomes inapplicable, and new qualitative effects occur. Through the use of this theory, the so-called slow (or differential) magnetic oscillations [Phys. Rev. Lett. 89, 126802 (2002)] with the frequency determined by the integral of transition (rather than the cross-sectional area of the Fermi surface) that survive up to higher temperatures and are more resistant to the sample heterogeneities and are, therefore, easier observed in experiments were explained and described for the first time. This effect remained a mystery for several decades and allowed determining the interlayer transition integral and the disorder type using experimental magnetoresistance data in various layered conductors. This theory explains the shift in the quantum conductivity oscillations beating phase as compared to magnetizability [Phys. Rev. B 65, 060403® (2002)] and other thermodynamic values.
- The mutual impact of angular and quantum magnetoresistance oscillations [Phys. Rev. B 90, 115138 (2014); Phys. Rev. B 95, 195130 (2017)] was analyzed. The relevant general formulae convenient for analysis with experimental data were generated.
- The strong longitudinal interlayer magnetoresistance in quasi two-dimensional metals [Phys. Rev. B 83, 245129 (2011); Phys. Rev. B 88, 054415 (2013)] having the core dependence in a strong magnetic field was predicted. This important and sudden effect was confirmed by us through experiments [Phys. Rev. B 86, 165125 (2012)] and is omitted from the standard theory based on tau approximation. Its description makes use of the Feynman diagram.
- It was demonstrated that magnetic oscillations in cuprate high-temperature superconductors of the YBCO family may be explained by the spectrum split due to the interlayer electron transition, rather than by small pockets of the Fermi surface [Phys. Rev. B 96, 165110 (2017)]. Its explains an unusual harmonic composition of oscillations and removes inconsistencies between data on ARPES and magnetic oscillations published in dozens of articles in the Nature journal. This paper was included in the key achievements of the Institut Laue-Langevin in France for 2017.
- Through the use of symmetry arguments, it was demonstrated [npj Quantum Materials 6, 11 (2021)] that the effective g-factor of charge carriers in many metals with the antiferromagnetic alignment measured by its magnetic quantum oscillations equals zero. The experimental research of this effect is conducted in several compounds and compared with the proposed theory. We have discovered that the antiferromagnetic state of layered organic conductor κ-(BETS)2FeBr4 does not show the Shubnikov-de Haas spin-based oscillation modulation, as opposed to the paramagnetic state of the same material. It evidences the degeneration of the Landau levels by spin predicted for antiferromagnetic conductors. Similarly, we do not see any spin-based modulation in the angular dependence of slow Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations in the Nd2−xCexCuO4 cuprate optimally compounded by electrons. It indicates the existence of the Neel wall in this superconductor even with the optimal compounding.
- Anisotropic conductors are often unstable to the generation of waves of charge or spin density that competes with superconductivity. The following results were obtained in this area:
- It was demonstrated for the first time [Phys. Rev. B 95, 165120 (2017); JETP Lett. 105, 786 (2017); Phys. Rev. B 98, 014515 (2018)] that the emerging superconductivity in the form of isolated islands results in anisotropic changes to conductivity and provides information regarding the volumetric share and form of superconductive islands. We applied this method to the analysis of experimental data in high-temperature superconductor FeSe and determined the temperature dependence of the volumetric share of superconductive islands. We observe a good qualitative consent for the temperature dependence of the superconductive phase share determined by the diamagnetic response and by the altered conductivity anisotropy based on the proposed model, which emphasizes its correctness for the qualitative and even quantitative description of this effect. The anisotropy of the superconductive transition itself was also explained [Phys. Rev. B 103, 014519 (2021)].
- The method of nonperturbative recording of impact of a charge/spin density wave covering only a portion of the Fermi surface on the remaining electronic states was developed. With the use of this method, the impact of density on superconductivity of layered materials was examined, and a number of unusual superconductivity properties against the density wave was obtained [Phys. Rev. B 75, 020507® (2007); Phys. Rev. B 77, 224508 (2008)] . In particular, a significant increase of the upper critical field with the unchanged Tc observed in layered organic metals was explained.
- It was demonstrated that changing the conductivity anisotropy upon the transition to the state with the charge density wave provides helpful information regarding its electronic structure, in particular, regarding the order parameter anisotropy [Phys. Rev. Lett. 112, 036601 (2014)].
- The phase diagram of charge density waves in a magnetic field for a difference electron dispersion law (for example, see the following papers [Phys. Rev. B 72, 195106 (2005); Phys. Rev. B 68, 201101® (2003)]) was examined. Specifically, a cascade of phase transitions between states with the different nesting (density wave) vector quantum with the magnetic field slope arising from the competition of the orbital and spin-based magnetic field impact on conductive electrons was proposed and examined.
- Liquid helium surface.
- A new type of excitations at the liquid helium surface [Letters to the Journal of Experimental and Theoretical Physics 78, 935 (2003), Letters to the Journal of Experimental and Theoretical Physics 87, 114 (2008), the Journal of Experimental and Theoretical Physics, 133, 370 (2008), J. Low Temp. Phys. 163, 131 (2011)] representing atoms at the surface quantum level was proposed and examined. It was demonstrated [Journal of Experimental and Theoretical Physics 155, 338 (2019)] that the experimental data on inelastic scattering of neutrons on a thin helium film and numeric computations is in line with this prediction.
- The temperature dependence of the scattering speed of ultracold neutrons on the liquid helium surface on steam atoms and ripplons — quanta of surface waves was examined in theory [Phys. Rev. C 94, 025504 (2016)]. The latter turned to be decisive at the temperature below 0.5К and linear at the tempetarure of T. Therefore, it should be taken into account even with the lowest temperature for the exact determination of the lifetime of neutrons with the use of liquid helium traps.
- The properties of negative large-sized ions (low coupled energy) on the liquid helium surface were proposed and examined [Journal of Experimental and Theoretical Physics, 115, 593 (1999)]. It was shown that such ions are held on the surface and may be helpful for the experimental implementation of quantum bits with a long decoherence period. It was demonstrated that negative ions that are not stable in the vacuum may be implemented on the liquid helium surface.
