Ph.D. (solid state physics):
"On the Mechanism of Proton Conductivity Along a Quasi-isolated Molecular Chain of Hydrogen Bonds" (1987).

Experience and skill:
At the Institute of Metal Physics I was working as an experimenter seeking for methods of preparation of superconducting chalcogenide films and studied their normal and superconductive properties.

At the Institute of Physics, for the first three years I studied different models of energy transfer in molecular complexes, such as photosynthetic membranes. At the same time I began the research on the protonic polaron. I proposed a mechanism of the proton motion based on the small (electron) polaron model for membrane proteins and some kinds of inorganic compounds. These results were included into my thesis (the advisor: Professor Petro M. Tomchuk, Head of Department).

Since 1984 I was interested in building an integral theory of bacteriorhodopsin functioning (the membrane protein macromolecule that functions as a light generator of proton current). My colleagues and I published a number of papers on this topic and our study has had an international scientific resonance.

In collaboration with biologists from Almaty (Kazakhstan) and researchers of our Institute we investigated some structural, physical, and electrophysical properties of different water specimens. In particular, it was shown that though the gases of the air in the standard (equilibrium) water account only for 0.003 % of its mass, the change of the entropy after the degassing of the water was great enough and could reach 15 %.

In collaboration with other team of experimenters headed by Prof. Galina O. Puchkovska from our Institute we studied the mesomorphic transformations and the proton subsystem dynamics in liquid crystalline carboxylic acids. Based on extensive studies performed by the team a mechanism of an associate formation was offered. Then we investigated the protonic conductivity of the NH4IO3*2HIO3 crystal both experimentally, using different methods, and theoretically. As a result the complicated mechanism of superionic conductivity was constructed; the mechanism combined the pure polaron conductivity and the band one.

In 1990-1991 I managed the project "Inactivation of Microorganisms in Strong Magnetic Field". Our research was both experimental (St. Petersburg and Moscow) and theoretical (Kyiv). The work was not completed due to the collapse of the USSR. However, we obtained substantial data and revealed the cause of the phenomenon. In general terms a microscopic mechanism of the DNA destruction was built (unpublished).

In 1990-1994 I was employed at the Institute of Physics and at the same time I was teaching quantum mechanics (practical training) in the Taras Shevchenko Kyiv National University.

Since 1996 in collaboration with a colleague, Dr. B. I. Lev, we began to investigate the general problem of cluster formation starting from the main principles of statistical mechanics.

In 1998 I worked as an assistant at Hagler Bailly, Inc. (an American consulting company), which was assisting to the National Energy Regulatory Commission under USAID project, Kyiv, Ukraine. I conducted an analysis of work of Local Electrical Companies and Generating Companies of Ukraine.

Since the end of 1980s I began to interest in the foundations of physics. I strive for the description of fundamental physics in pure geometrical terms, i.e., I try to show how the physical notions (a particle, mass, spin, charge, etc.), rules and laws would appear from a mathematical space. I continue my research on the construction of submicrosopic mechanics in the real space, on the micro and macro structure of the universe (the major part of the work was made in collaboration with Professor Michel Bounias, an eminent mathematician from d'Avignon University, France) and on the unification of submicroscopic (quantum) mechanics with the quantum and classical gravity. In collaboration with an experimenter of our Institute, Dr. Valery Byckov, we could reveal a new type of quasi-particles (called inertons) in condensed matter. It is assumed that among other influences inertons should determine the degree of the dispersion of a light beam (both very strong and very weak intensities) that passes through the specimen studied; in particular, the theory of the anomalous photoelectric effect has already been constructed. Besides, it has been shown that inertons are responsible for the collective dynamics of hydrogen atoms in the KIO3 HIO3 crystal dictated by a substructure of the hydrogen atoms' matter waves. More details on my research in the area of fundamentals are available in
Research Interests

In 2001 my colleagues (experimenters from our Institute and astronomers from the Kharkiv observatory, Kharkiv, Ukraine) and I offered a project "Inerton Astronomy" - a radically new branch of astronomy, which would be realized if funds are available.

I closely worked with biologists and physicians who founded the information medicine in Ukraine and Muscovy in the beginning of the 1990s. First of all they are Prof. Dr. Zenovy Skrypnyuk and Mr. Vasyl Fedorivsky. They possess a method of influence on illness organs by means of a special matrix that transfers signal of spatial deformations to those organs, which corrects their anomalous or distorted state. This discovery requires further detailed physical studies of course.

Besides, I am involved with colleagues in some other R&D projects (see
Applied Interests) and Indra Scientific. The R&D work allowed me to visit Prof. M. Fleischmann (photo: at M. Fleischmann )

In 2003-2005 I edited a series of 5 books on progress in quantum physics research (Nova Sceince Publishers, New York, 2004 and 2006)

I took a part in several international conferences in Ukraine, Poland, Czech Republic, Muscovy, Austria, the UK and Greece. There were also other invitations and presentations.

There are above 80 published works.
