Main directions of activity Studies of intermolecular interactions
Studies of molecular interactions through observed lineshape; pressure broadening shifting and mixing of collisional spectral lines
Large collisional lineshifts were discovered, which
played a significant role in the introduction of shift measurements into practice of
microwave spectroscopy and helped to investigate the dependence of collisional
lineshifts on a number of parameters. The effect of nonadditivity of collisional lineshifts in the system of molecular
was also revealed. The developed methods of precision broadband resonator spectroscopy
permitted accurate studies of the shape of atmospheric lines and bands, including measurement
of line broadenings, shifting and mixing at atmospheric pressure, measurement of integral line intensity and studies
of continuum absorption. The first applications of pressure
were proposed. The first physically based approach to quantitative analysis of pressurized water vapor spectra at high temperature taking into account line mixing effect as well as collisional formation of small molecular clusters was developed.
