Research Interests and Expertise

  • Atomic and Molecular Physics, Vacuum technique
  • The determination of the deuterium and oxygen 18 concentrations at natural values in water, geofluids and hydrogenated compounds from biological materials (plants, animals), the preparation and purification of samples in order for isotopic analysis
  • Isotopic research in the natural cycle of water from the atmosphere-soil-plants-atmosphere system (the translocation of deuterium in plants, isotopic effects in plants, response times of plants at ambient changes, the effectivness of water use by plants)
