Short resume

 

A.M.Balagurov is well known scientist in the area of condensed matter studies and applied research by neutron scattering technique. Mainly his work was connected with construction of neutron spectrometers and neutron diffraction studies at the pulsed reactors in the Frank Laboratory of Neutron Physics (Dubna). Repeatedly he visited neutron scattering centers in Europe and United States, for instance ISIS (UK), ILL (France), LLB (France), BENSC (Germany), ANL (USA), for performing experiments and discussions. In the last years his scientific interests are concentrated on structural studies of complex magnetic oxides (cuprates, manganites, cobaltites), multilayer lipid structures (lipid membranes) and materials of relevance to nuclear energy sector using neutron beams. A.M.Balagurov is active participant of national and international conferences, schools, workshops etc. Many times he was invited speaker at neutron scattering and crystallographic conferences. His list of publications contains more than 200 papers in reviewed magazines. In 2000 he was awarded with Russian State Prize for development and realization of neutron diffraction at steady state and pulsed neutron sources.
