The features of the crystal structure and the influence of structural defects of various morphologies on the electrical conductivity of these compounds in the normal, pseudogap, and superconducting states are discussed. A review of experimental data obtained from studies of the effect of long-term aging in air on various mechanisms of electrical transport of Re<sub>1</sub>Ba<sub>2</sub>Cu<sub>3</sub>O<sub>7-δ</sub> compounds of various compositions and technological backgrounds is carried out. The effect of long aging on stability of the oxygen subsystem and the electrical resistance of pure and aluminum-doped YBa<sub>2</sub>Cu<sub>3</sub>O<sub>7-δ</sub> single crystals with a given topology of planar defects have been studied. Various theoretical models are discussed on the effect of long-term exposure in an air atmosphere on the electrical conductivity of HTSC compounds of the 1-2-3 system.</p> Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of V.N.

It is shown that the luminescence enhancement of J-aggregates due to the exciton-plasmon interaction occurs in a very similar manner for both types of aggregates, namely: the largest enhancement factor is achieved at a distance between J-aggregates and nanoparticles of 15-20 nm, while the exciton delocalization length increases and increasing their lifetime, as well as suppressing the process of exciton self-trapping. However, these effects are more pronounced for PIC J-aggregates than for TDBC J-aggregates, despite the latter exhibiting better excitonic characteristics. It is proposed that the main factor of the detected discrepancies is the different structure of the exciton bands for J-aggregates and, accordingly, the different degree of overlap of their absorption bands with the plasmon resonance band of gold nanoparticles.</p> Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of V.N. Karazin Kharkiv National University, series "Physics" Thu, 30 Nov 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Functional characteristics of hydroxyapatite sintered at high temperatures <p>The functional characteristics of hydroxyapatite, which has carbonate impurities inside the hydroxyapatite crystal lattice after sintering in the temperature interval from room temperature &nbsp;to 1400°C have been studied. It has been shown, that carbonate impurities are present in hydroxyapatite up to 1000°C. Hydroxyapatite has a mixed AB - type of carbonate substitution. It has been shown, that all samples after the heating and sintering in the temperature interval from room to 1400°C contain single phase hydroxyapatite. The samples have density greater than 95% of the theoretical for hydroxyapatite at the temperature of 1200°C. The active shrinkage of the samples starts at temperature near 700°C and reaches the maximum value at 1280°C. The same tendency was demonstrated by the dependence of Vickers microhardness on sintered temperature. The maximum Vickers microhardness of 5.5 GPa was obtained in this work on the samples of hydroxyapatite after sintering at the temperature of 1100°C. The mechanisms of the hydroxyapatite sintering at 1150°C have been studied. It has been shown, that the diffusion during the sintering of the samples is realized by the surface diffusion mechanism, as well as through the interface grain boundaries in the polycrystalline hydroxyapatite. The microstructure of the hydroxyapatite particles after heating at high temperatures was studied. It has been shown, that at the initial stage of the sintering of hydroxyapatite, active mass transfer take place, which at the temperature of 1000°C leads to the sintering of the particles with neck formations between them. The Arenerus plot of the size of hydroxyapatite particles as a function of the heating temperature was obtained. The activation energy for diffusion processes in the particles at different temperatures was calculated. The obtained values were 36, 83, 5.11 and 11.28 kcal/mol at different intervals for the heating of hydroxyapatite.</p> Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of V.N.

It is revealed that the initial microstructure of Al-4&nbsp;wt.%&nbsp;Ge alloy samples is coarse-grained. Initial microstructure of 1420Т and 1933 alloy samples is bimodal. The study of characteristic types of samples microstructure deformed under the optimal conditions showed that the average grain size d<sub>&nbsp;av</sub> in samples of Al-4.1&nbsp;wt.%&nbsp;Cu-0.5&nbsp;wt.%&nbsp;Zr and 1420T alloys increases slightly. It is revealed that in the course of superplastic deformation of Al-4&nbsp;wt.%&nbsp;Ge and 1933 alloy samples, recrystallization takes place intensively, it leads to an increase in the initial grain sizes. Accumulation of cavities in the samples of all studied alloys during superplastic flow is observed. In the samples of alloys 1420T and 1933 during superplastic deformation, structural changes occur, which are probably associated with local melting of the alloys. The viscous flow of the metastable liquid-solid phase localized at the grain boundaries leads to the formation of fibrous structures in cavities and cracks. The study of the deformation relief of the samples gives grounds for asserting that their superplastic deformation takes place due to the cooperative development of deformation and accommodation mechanisms, namely grain boundary sliding, intragranular dislocation sliding and diffusion creep. The contribution of grain boundary sliding to the overall deformation of the samples was analyzed, as well as the likely influence of liquid phase inclusions on the mechanism of superplastic deformation of samples that exhibit the effect of structural superplasticity in the solid-liquid state.</p> Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of V.N.

Modernization was carried out with the aim of giving the work of the workshop elements of research activity. Using the example of thematically related laboratory works from the section "Electricity and Magnetism", it is shown that the combination of several laboratory works into one study of the electrophysical properties of semiconductor materials provides an opportunity to gain deeper knowledge about the object of research and contributes to the development of research activity skills of physics students. The work investigated semiconductor diodes manufactured using different technologies: Schottky diode MBR2045, high-voltage p – i – n diode STTH6012 and diode with p – n junction D92 – 02. The study consisted of studying volt-ampere, volt-farad characteristics and temperature dependences of the reverse current of each of the specified products. The measurement results were processed using modern theoretical models of semiconductors. The equipment and skills acquired by students during the performance of such complex laboratory work can be used in research work if there are appropriate tasks.</p> Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of V.N.
