## Roton-maxon spectrum and instability for weakly interacting dipolar excitons in a semiconductor layer

The formation of the roton-maxon excitation spectrum and the roton instability effect for a *weakly* correlated Bose gas of dipolar excitons in a semiconductor layer are predicted. The stability diagram is calculated. According to our numerical estimations, the threshold of the roton instability for Bose-Einstein condensed exciton gas with roton-maxon spectrum is achievable experimentally, e.g., in GaAs semiconductor layers.

We predict the effect of the roton instability for a two-dimensional *weakly* interacting gas of tilted dipoles in a single homogeneous quantum layer. Being typical for strongly correlated systems, the roton phenomena appear to occur in a weakly interacting gas. It is important that in contrast to a system of normal to the layer dipoles, breaking of the rotational symmetry for a system of tilted dipoles leads to the convergence of the condensate depletion even up to the threshold of the roton instability, with mean-field approach being valid. Predicted effects can be observed in a wide class of dipolar systems. We suggest observing predicted phenomena for systems of ultracold atoms and polar molecules in optical lattices, and estimate optimal experimental parameters.

The possibility to observe a macroscopically coherent state in a gas of two-dimensional direct excitons at temperatures up to tens of Kelvin is described. The dramatic increase of the exciton lifetime allowing effective thermalization is predicted for the o -resonant cavities that strongly suppress exciton recombination. The material systems considered are single GaAs quantum wells of di erent thicknesses and a transition metal dichalcogenide monolayer, embedded in a layered medium with subwavelength period. The quantum hydrodynamic approach combined with the Bogoliubov description yield the one-body density matrix of the system. Employing the Kosterlitz-Thouless \dielectric screening" problem to account for vortices, we obtain the superfluid and the condensate densities and the critical temperature of the Berezinskii-Kosterlitz-Thouless crossover, for all geometries in consideration. Experimentally observable manyfold increase of the photoluminescence intensity from the structure as it is cooled below the critical temperature is predicted.

The dynamics of a two-component Davydov-Scott (DS) soliton with a small mismatch of the initial location or velocity of the high-frequency (HF) component was investigated within the framework of the Zakharov-type system of two coupled equations for the HF and low-frequency (LF) fields. In this system, the HF field is described by the linear Schrödinger equation with the potential generated by the LF component varying in time and space. The LF component in this system is described by the Korteweg-de Vries equation with a term of quadratic influence of the HF field on the LF field. The frequency of the DS soliton`s component oscillation was found analytically using the balance equation. The perturbed DS soliton was shown to be stable. The analytical results were confirmed by numerical simulations.

Radiation conditions are described for various space regions, radiation-induced effects in spacecraft materials and equipment components are considered and information on theoretical, computational, and experimental methods for studying radiation effects are presented. The peculiarities of radiation effects on nanostructures and some problems related to modeling and radiation testing of such structures are considered.
