  • Investigation of the changes in the electronic structure in a wide range of pressures including structural phase transitions:
    • "semiconductor-metal" phase transitions
    • electronic and structural transitions
    • study of charge carriers parameters and probing the electronic structure of materials
  • Thermoelectric investigations
    • search for ways to improve thermoelectric power factor and figure of merit
    • search for new phases and states with high thermoelectric parameters
