Senior Researcher, Department of Theoretical and Experimental Physics, Kabardino-Balkarian State University named after H.M. Berbekov Zeytun Akhmatov became the winner of the 2022 competition for the right to receive grants from the President of the Russian Federation for state support of young Russian scientists — candidates of science. Zeytun Akhmatov is the winner of the UMNIK competition in 2018, the key executor of 2 RFBR grants, an expert of the Innovation Promotion Foundation, and the author of 32 scientific articles. The topic of the work of the young scientist, encouraged by the presidential grant, is «Investigation of the capillary and electronic properties of layered carbon materials intercalated with metal atoms.»

The study of the electronic and dynamic properties of graphene-like structures (two-layer and multilayer graphene and their intercalated modifications) is currently one of the urgent scientific problems, since new high-speed transistors, batteries and high-capacity capacitors will be created on their basis, — explains Zeytun Anuarovich. — Transistors and other logic elements based on graphene-like structures (HS) with a controlled band gap will significantly reduce the consumed electricity, while increasing the speed of operation of devices in which they will be used in the future by an order of magnitude. Zeytun Akhmatov expresses his special gratitude to the professor of the Department of Theoretical and Experimental Physics of KBSU Azamat Khokonov for his help in choosing the current scientific direction, as well as the formulation of interesting and modern problems. Also, the young scientist notes the importance of cooperation with BNO INR and SKFU (Stavropol), thanks to which it is possible to find a way to unique installations and conduct technically complex experiments. An important role was played by my annual (since 2015) participation in the international «Fort» conference devoted to the equation of state of matter and the interaction of intense energy fluxes with matter. This conference provides an excellent opportunity to expand your scientific horizons, gain experience from leading foreign and Russian scientists, and keep abreast of the latest research. I strongly recommend all our young scientists, graduate students and students to participate in the work of this conference, — commented Zeytun Akhmatov.
