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).
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
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.
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the DNA destruction was built (unpublished).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
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
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
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
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
and Indra Scientific.
The R&D work allowed me to visit Prof. M. Fleischmann
at M. Fleischmann )
In 2003-2005 I edited a series of 5 books on
progress in quantum physics research
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.
