The properties of hybrid materials based on the MK-40 heterogeneous membrane, the MF-4SK homogeneous membrane, and zirconium oxide with a functionalized surface are studied. The ionic conductivity and diffusion parameters of these materials were studied. The presence of the asymmetry effect of diffusion permeability and mutual diffusion of HCl and NaCl solutions through the studied membranes was revealed. The causes of asymmetry and the mechanisms of the influence of the dopant on diffusion parameters are considered.
The contribution of electron–phonon scattering to conductivity of a quantum cylinder in a lon-gitudinal magnetic field has been studied. It has been shown that the conductivity of the nanotube undergoes Aharonov–Bohm oscillations with variations in the magnetic flux through the nanotube cross section. The formulas describing the temperature dependence of the resistance of the nanostructure both in the case of an isotropic phonon spectrum and with allowance for the effects of phonon confinement have been obtained in the analytical form.
In operation results of computer simulation of characteristics of the standard analog device - the heterodyne executed on the printed circuit board from the composite dielectric having feeble conductivity are explained. Results of simulation showed that increase in specific bulk conductivity of material of the printed circuit board to 2·10 -7 Ohm -1 -m -1 practically does not change operating characteristics of a heterodyne. The possibility of effective use of the composite poorly carrying out dielectrics in standard radio engineering devices allowing to prevent origin of electrostatic discharges is set.
A contribution of the electron-phonon scattering to the conductivity of a quantum cylinder in a magnetic field is calculated. It is demonstrated that the nanotube conductivity undergoes the Aharonov–Bohm oscillations with changes of the magnetic flux through the nanotube cross section.
Garman-Klass and Rogers-Satchell methods to estimate the diffusion coefficient of a fractal random process are considered. Standard statistical characteristics are studied of the estimates proposed, such as mean, variance, as well as the estimation distribution function.
The photoemission of excess charge carriers into high-ohmic gallium arsenide was investigated. It was revealed, that the illumination even small local sample areas located far from contacts, influences both on contacts transition resistance and on volume conductivity of the crystal. On Suite-voltage dependencies there is a linear plot, angular coefficient which is directly proportional to the diameter of the illuminated surface. The model qualitatively explain the experimental results.
Investigated the effect of annealing on the optical properties of metallic films obtained by setting the plasma-focus "PF-4" on glass substrates. The transmission spectra of these films before and after annealing in air at about 900 K for about 10 minutes. Shows the effect of carbon on the optical properties and electrical conductivity of the films.
We have performed a comparative analysis of the bio-oil produced by thermal liquefaction of microalgae in different solvents using high-resolution Orbitrap mass spectrometry and GC-MS approach. Water, methanol, ethanol, butanol, isopropanol, acetonitrile, toluene, and hexane were used as solvents in which the liquefaction was performed. It was observed that all resulting oils demonstrate a considerable degree of similarity. For all samples, compounds containing 1 and 2 nitrogen atoms dominated in the positive ESI spectra, while a relative contribution of other compounds was small. In negative ESI mode, compounds having 2 to 7 oxygens were observed. Statistical analysis revealed that products can be combined in two groups depending on the solvent used for the liquefaction. To the first group, we can attribute the products obtained by using protic (alcohols) and to the second by using aprotic (acetonitrile, toluene) solvents. Nevertheless, based on our results, we concluded that solvent possesses a minor impact on molecular composition of bio-oil. We suggested that the driving force of the liquefaction reaction is the thermal dehydration of the carbohydrate in algae, resulting in water formation, which could be the trigger of the producing of bio-oil. To prove this hypothesis, we performed the reaction with the dry algae in the absence of the solvent and observed the formation of bio-oil.
We report room temperature injection lasing in the yellow–orange spectral range (599–605 nm) in (AlxGa1–x)0.5In0.5P–GaAs diodes with 4 layers of tensilestrained InyGa1–yP quantum dot-like insertions. The wafers were grown by metal–organic vapor phase epitaxy side-by-side on (811), (211) and (322) GaAs substrates tilted towards the <111> direction with respect to the (100) surface. Four sheets of GaP-rich quantum barrier insertions were applied to suppress leakage of non-equilibrium electrons from the gain medium. Laser diodes having a threshold current densities of ~7–10 kA/cm2 at room temperature were realized for both (211) and (322) surface orientations at cavity lengths of ~1mm. Emission wavelength at room temperature ~600 nm is shorter by ~8 nm than previously reported. As an opposite example, the devices grown on (811) GaAs substrates did not show lasing at room temperature.

p-i-n photodiodes comprising dense arrays of InGaAs quantum dots (referred to as quantum well-dots) were fabricated, and the basic physical processes affecting their highspeed performance were studied for the first time by measuring the frequency response under illumination with photons absorbed either in the quantum well-dots (905-nm illumination) or mainly in GaAs layers (860-nm illumination). A GaAs p-i-n photodiode of similar design was also measured for comparison. A maximum −3 dB bandwidth of 8.2 GHz was measured for the 905-nm light illumination, and maximum internal −3 dB bandwidth of 12.5 GHz was estimated taking into account the effect of RC-parasitic by the equivalent circuit model. It was found that the internal response is mainly controlled by the carrier drift time in the depletion region; this process can be characterized by a field-dependent effective velocity of charge carriers in the layered heterostructure, which is approximately half the saturation velocity in GaAs. The carrier escape from the InGaAs quantum well-dots was found to has less effect; the escape time was estimated to be 12–17 ps depending on the reverse-bias voltage applied.
