Institute of Magnetism was founded in June, 1995, on the base of the two departments of the Institute for Metal Physics and one department of the Institute of Geochemistry, Mineralogy and Ore Formation, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.

THE INSTITUTE PERFORMS RESEARCH IN MODERN PROBLEMS OF THE PHYSICS OF MAGNETISM AND MAGNNETIC MATERIALS IN THE FOLLOWING FIELDS:

Theory of Magnetism

Kinetic theory of magnons, solitons and breathers in the integrable magnetic systems along with their kinetic coefficients are formulated. Theory of the exchange relaxation of nonlinear magnetic waves in ferromagnets is developed. New methods to study the magnetic valve effect for layered magnetic structures are proposed.

Modern problems of Solid State Physics

Optimal methods to protect the Josephson analyzer head against the intensive electromagnetic radiation are proposed, with the use of magnetic and superconductor materials.

New Magnetic Materials

Fundamentals for fabrication of ultrahigh-density magnetic recording media have been developed. Features of the spin-dependent conductivity and tunneling effects in layered metallic magnetics have been specified. Regularities of the evolution of magnetic phase composition of the doped manganite thin films and manganite-based heterostructures have been determined. Magnetoelastic shape memory materials for a new class of acoustic transformers have been developed. Magnetic phase transformations in Cr-based alloys have been investigated.

Mathematical Physics

Theory of phase transition is formulated in terms of stable random variables by Levy. A theory of addition of the Kleinian hyperelliptic functions is developed and then applied to the integrability problem of nonlinear partial differential equations of evolution type. In the long Josephson junction a transmission of two-phase nonlinear electromagnetic waves is studied and the appropriate current-voltage characteristics are built by means of the Riemannian theta-functions.

Studies aimed at reduction of the consequences of Chernobyl nuclear power plant disaster

Program package, which realize multi-dimensional modeling methodology. A tool for 3D-mathematical modeling which is founded on principles of self-organisation allows us to construct sufficiently reliable 3D models of different geochemical and geophysical parameters on data with real level noise.
