About Department of Crystallography and Crystal Chemistry
Department of Crystallography and Crystal Chemistry was founded in Lomonosov Moscow State University by Correspoding Member of USSR Academy of Sciences Prof. G.B. Bokii in 1949. Since 1961 Academician Prof. N.V. Belov was head of the Department and outstanding leader of teaching and studying in all fields of crystallography. Starting from 1983 and up to now the Department is headed by Academician of Russian Academy of Sciences Prof. V.S. Urusov. Nowadays the staff consists of 25 people - teaches, researchers, engineers.
|The central point in the domain of theoretical crystal chemistry is occupied by development of energetic analysis of stability and properties of the pure crystals and solid solutions. The resent activity of the group (Prof. V.S. Urusov, Dr. N.N. Eremin) is concentrated on the problem of computer modeling of structures and properties of mineral and inorganic solids using semi-empirical interatomic potentials as well as on the development of atomistic and phenomenological theory of isomorphous substitutions. The leading ide Apart of crystal chemistry and X-ray diffraction groups, the Department includes two laboratories of single crystal growth: the grow||Department of Crystallography and Crystal Chemistry is responsible for crystallography education of all the students (about 200 per year) of Geological Faculty of Moscow State University as well as for special education of bachelors, masters and PhD students in the field of crystallography and crystal chemistry (5-6 students and 3-4 post-graduate students per year). The main teaching courses are as follows: general crystallography, theory of symmetry (Assoc. Prof. Yu.K. Egorov-Tismenko), introduction to crystal chemistry and advanced theoretical crystal chemistry (Prof. V.S. Urusov, Assoc. Prof. N.N. Eremin), X-ray diffraction and crystal structure analysis (Prof. D.Yu. Puscharovsky, Senior teacher N.N. Zubkova), crystal morphology (Assoc. Prof. G.I. Dorokhova), crystal grow||
In recent years the following main text-books (in Russian) have been published by the teachers of Department: “Crystallography” (1992) by Yu. Egorov-Tismenko et al., “Theory of crystal symmetry” (2000) by Yu. Egorov-Tismenko & G. Litvinskaya, “Theoretical crystal chemistry” (1987) by V. Urusov, “X-ray diffractometry” (2000) by D. Puscharovsky, “Structural types of minerals” (1990) by D. Puscharovsky & V. Urusov , “Design of probable crystal structures of minerals” by V. Urusov et al. and others. |
