Main Research Lines

Biomechanics of cells, including Clinical Biomechanics. Transport processes of energy, momentum and mass transfer in living systems adjusted for biomechanical properties of these systems, including thermal, cooling and cryo-therapeutic effects.

Developing new methods and tools for scanning probing microscopy (CPM);

Investigating different-type samples (biological objects, coatings, films, carbon nanotubes, single molecules, micro-and optoelectronic components with the use of CPM methods;

Studying the specific features of the dynamic regime of an atomic-force microscope (AFM) for different-type samples;

Developing new applications of the AFM dynamic regime for the analysis of surfaces at the nanometer scale, including the dynamic force spectroscopy, tribo-logy, and nanoidentification;

Evaluating the local mechanical properties and surface topography of living cells with a high spatial resolution;

Investigating adhesion processes and friction interactions in metal polymer systems;

Developing new principles of nano-sized metal film-based storage of hydrogen

The Laboratory of Nanoprocesses and Nanotechnologies is involved in developing and manufacturing research devices and accessories in the scanning probing microscopy field
