Research activity is focused on the study of:

(i) Intrinsic, impurity, radiation and light-induced paramagnetic-active defects in solids;

(ii) Physical properties of thin films and nanomaterials;

(iii) Local structure and dynamics of relaxors and disordered ferroelectrics;

(iv) Physical properties of new magnetoelectric materials, multiferroics, and materials for spintronics.

The purpose of investigations is to discover the basic physical laws which govern the behavior of the materials and provide a key to the understanding of their macro- and microscopical properties and the discovery of new materials for various applications. Advanced Electron Paramagnetic Resonance, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance and Electron Nuclear Double Resonance techniques are used for this purpose.
