RUS Laboratory of Real Structure of Crystals

Experimental techniques

  • Photoelasticity method for study of microstress fields around individual dislocations (and their clusters) and their influence on physical properties of crystals.
  • Magnetooptical and radio-frequency inductive methods for study of dynamical properties of Bloch walls, lines, and points in transparent ferromagnets.
  • Magnetooptical indicator film (MOIF) technique
    • for visualizing magnetic flux penetration and trapping in superconductors
    • for study of magnetization reversal processes in opaque nanostructured materials (magnetic multilayers, spin valves, etc.) in a wide temperature range.
  • Polarizing optical technique for study of domain-wall dynamics in ferroelectrics.
