Main results for the recent years

The theory of Brownian motors has been developed, which describes the temperature-frequency control of the magnitude and direction of the velocity of the ratchet effect. The mechanism of occurrence of additional areas of nonmonotonicity of the frequency dependence of the average velocity and additional motor stop points, which is due to competition between the characteristic times of the system.

A model of a reciprocating molecular photomotor of the guest-host type, consisting of dye and cavitand molecules, has been developed. Under the action of an ultrashort laser pulse, the dye molecule performs a reciprocating motion, which is accompanied by an increase in the lifetime of fluorescence.

The theory of spatially indirect exciton states (SIES) in nanosystems containing semiconductor (germanium) and dielectric (alumina) quantum dots (QDs) has been developed. It is shown that the interband absorption (radiation) spectra of nanosystems consist of energy zones formed by electron transitions between quasi-stationary and stationary states, and the intraband absorption spectra consist of zones caused by electron transitions between stationary states.

The theory of interaction of SIES with light in nanosystems is developed. It is shown that at the resonant frequency of SIES, the values of polarizability, as well as absorption cross sections due to optical absorption on surface SIES, acquire gigantic values four orders of magnitude larger than similar values in semiconductor and dielectric single crystals.

The theory of photoluminescence of perovskite nanocrystals (PNs) has been developed. It is shown that the total relaxation of the PNs looks like a cascade phototransition process in which the total effective lifetime of relaxation after photoexcitation is a convolution of exponential declines for each transition in the cascade. Mechanisms for the formation of interband absorption and photoluminescence spectra, as well as mechanisms for slowing down photoluminescence radiation in PNs are proposed.

The tunneling of electrons through the potential barrier separating the double QDs of germanium has been theoretically investigated. It is shown that the tunneling of electrons through the potential barrier leads to the splitting of electronic states and the emergence of a zone of electronic states localized above the interface (QD - silicon matrix).

The influence of mass transport on the occurrence of periodic current oscillations and bistability in a model electrocatalytic process with a preceding homogeneous first-order chemical reaction in the Nernst diffusion layer for different diffusion coefficients of species involved in the chemical reaction is shown. The impacts of the diffusion coefficients of electrochemically active and inactive species, as well as the preceding chemical reaction rate constants on the emergence of these dynamical instabilities are uncovered.

For the first time, the exact analytical expression for the Gerischer finite length impedance is obtained for different diffusion coefficients of the species involved in the homogeneous first-order chemical reaction.

A simple physical model which describes the origin of phase angle of the Warburg finite length diffusion impedance was developed. It is shown that dffusion results in a phase delay of the surface concentration of species with respect to current. The phase shift between current and concentration is a function of a ration of the Nernst diffusion layer thickness to an oscillating length.

In the comparative electrodynamic analysis of two approaches to nanopolishing of quartz surface (under direct light and full internal reflection) it was determined that due to the phenomenon of total internal reflection, other things being equal, Poynting vector over surface protrusions, in case of surface quartz illumination, under critical angle of total internal reflection, increases by about 8 times.
