An interdisciplinary youth laboratory with research, technological and educational tasks for conducting fundamental and applied research in the field of photonics of nanoscale semiconductors.

The main efforts are focused on the creation of functional photoactive nanomaterials of a new generation and the study of photostimulated processes of destruction of organic pollutants in heterogeneous systems.

An important area of the laboratory's work is the search for ways to expand the functional characteristics of classical photocatalytic nanomaterials. This is achieved through the use of smart or stimulus-sensitive nanomaterials and composites based on them, capable of converting various types of energy into useful energy of chemical reactions.

Hybrid magneto-piezoelectric nanogenerators as a new class of smart photocatalysts

Hybrid magneto-piezoelectric nanogenerators as a new class of smart photocatalysts
The project is aimed at solving several interrelated problems (environmental, materials science, health-saving), which, ultimately, will allow us to obtain an applied resource- and health-saving technology for the decomposition of a wide range of organic pollutants in real objects. At the same time, the main fundamental task is related to the development of the basics of the magnetically controlled piezophototron effect, which is a combination of piezo-, magneto- and photocatalytic activity. The main material science task of the study is the design of photocatalysts, the creation of a fundamentally new class of flexible, easily extractable thin-film organo-inorganic nanocomposites based on the functional analysis of piezoelectric polymer PVDF by iron-containing magnetic photocatalysts with different magnetic ordering (a-Fe2O3, Fe3O4, BiFeO3) by electric spinning. The essence of the claimed research consists in using the phenomenon of direct conversion of mechanical energy into chemical energy, the so-called piezoelectrochemical effect based on the piezoelectric properties of the proposed materials to solve the applied environmental and health-saving problem associated with the decomposition of a wide range of organic pollutants. In addition, the inclusion of magnetic nanoparticles in the structure of PVDF nanowires opens up the possibility of controlling the piezophotocatalysis process by both an electric field due to ferroelectric polarization and a magnetic field due to magnetically induced spin polarization.
