Main results:

Research is focused on the field of fabricating nanowires and nanorods. The structural and optical properties of nanostructure assemblies are evaluated. Besides the metal and semiconductor nanostructures obtained by the template approach, insulating semiorganic nanorods are grown using crystallization from solution in polymer templates produced by ion irradiation. The research is directed towards the synthesis of micro- and nanorods of nonlinear optical materials doped with dyes. Latest researches are directed towards obtaining protein/metal nanostructures.
Leader of 6 national research projects related to the synthesis and characterization of nanostructures.
