    2. Porotnikova N.M. “Oxygen isotope exchange and microstructure of materials based on lanthanum-strontium manganite and zirconium-ittrium electrolyte”.

The employees take active part in international projects of IHTE, in the programs of PRAS and DCSM, in the projects of UB RAS, RFBR, governmental contracts, regional programs, etc.

The average equipment exploitation period is not more than 7 years that allows performing scientific research according to the world standards.

For the last few years methods of studying and attestation of thing layers, nanodispersed materials, dispersed and pored ceramic materials as well as construction parts of complex electrochemical cells have been developed. Modern hi tech method for preparing metallographic sections of materials which allows obtaining microimages of  sample cross-sections with saving pored microstructure (for ex., for electrochemical cell, etc) has been created.

Advanced professional training for employees as well as participation in scientific- technical conferences and meetings are provided.
