Iosif Leibin


PhD thesis: Matrix Isolation of Open-Shell Atoms;

Supervisor: Prof. A.A. Buchachenko;

IDC Committee members: Prof. A.A. Buchachenko, Prof. A. Shapeev, Senior. Res. Dmitry Aksyonov; Assistant Prof. Victoria Nikitina


Iosif graduated from Lomonosov Moscow State University in 2020, receiving Specialist Degree in Chemistry. There he started his research in theoretical modeling of structure, spectra and dynamics of open-shell atoms isolated in rare gas crystals. His Master’s thesis was devoted to the development and application of the new method of calculating optical spectra and diffusion rates of matrix-isolated atoms in P electronic states. In Skoltech, Iosif’s goal is to continue his research on manifestations of interaction anisotropy in cryogenic solids and develop general understanding of these effects.
