Prof. Yuriy Plevachuk
Head of Research & Development Department at Ivan Franko National University of Lviv Ukraine
Yuriy Plevachuk is Professor of the Metal Physics Department and Head of Research & Development Department at Ivan Franko National University of Lviv, Ukraine. He received his Ph.D. degree in molecular physics “Experimental investigations of liquid-liquid equilibrium in metal and semiconductor liquid alloys” (1995) and Doctor of Science degree in Metal Physics “Macro- and microsegregation in the monotectic and eutectic metal melts” (2012) from Ivan Franko National University of Lviv. He was a lecturer at Lviv Polytechnic National University and carried out mobility activities for teaching in the frame of the ERASMUS+ Program at the University of Miskolc, Hungary.
Current subjects of his research are thermophysical properties of liquid metals and alloys; correlation between structure and structure-sensitive characteristics; critical phenomena and phase transitions in metal alloys. He has received several awards among which the IUPAC Poster Prise at 12th Inter. Conference HTMC-XII. He is the author or co-author of more than 150 scientific papers in refereed journals, 5 books and 3 book chapters. Professor Plevachuk is the associate editor of Journal of Physical Studies.
D.Sc., Prof. Peter Svec
Vice-Director and Senior researcherInstitute of Physics, Slovak Academy of Sciences
Peter Svec (Sr.) graduated in Solid State Physics from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Slovak University of Technology, Bratislava in 1979, PhD in Solid State Physics in 1986, D.Sc in 2003. Since 1979 he is researcher, senior researcher and vice-director (2011-2019) at the Institute of Physics, Slovak Academy of Sciences. Research focused on physics of metals, especially on formation and phase transformations of metal-metalloid glassy systems, high-resolution investigation of atomic structure & thermodynamics of disordered and nanostructured systems by electron microscopy methods, micromechanisms of nanocrystal formation, quantitative thermodynamic analysis of transformations from metastable states.
He is member of the International Advisory Committee for Rapid Quenching, member of Slovak Learned Society, member and vice-chair of IUPAP Commission C10 on Solid State Physics, holder of State Award, Slovak Patent Office Award and others.
