#### O.G. Vlokh, A.V. Kityk. Crystalline Dielectrics with incommensurate modulated structure. 2002

On the basis of phenomenological theory and macroscopic properties (dielectric, optical, elastic, etc.) the essence of the physics of crystalline dielectrics (ferroelectrics and ferroelastics) with incommensurately modulated structure is described. The nontrivial phase transitions and the corresponding properties are explained by the introduction of the gradient invariants into the expression for free energy, by the interaction of phase and amplitude modes, and by the discreteness of fractional values of wave vectors localized at certain points in the Brillouin zone. A wide number of effects inherent solely to the IC phases are associated with the interaction of phase solitons with impurities and defects. For masters, post-graduate students and researchers in the field of solid-state physics, structural phase transitions, crystal-optics, crystal-acoustics, applied physics

The book is recommended for specia;istes of Master degree, PhD students, scientists working in the field of Solid State Physics, structural phase transitions, Crystal Optics, Crystal Acoustics, Applied Physics.

#### O.I. Herzanych. A2IVB2VC6VI ferroelectrics under high pressure, 2008.

The book is devoted to the study of the physical properties of ferroelectrics of A2B2C6 group under the influence of hydrostatic pressure. The main attention is paid to the dielectric, ferroelectric, mechanical and optical properties at phase transitions. It is shown that on the phase p,T-diagrams of these crystals the Livshits point is realized, which separates transitions into ordered polar, nonpolar, and incommensurate phases. Some applications of A2B2C6 ferroelectrics as well as high pressure apparatus are described..

ISBN 978-966-97386-1-5

The book is devoted to the problem of generation of singular beams and to the control of their parameters by external fields of different nature. On the basis of the established basic regularities of the effects of parametric singular crystal-optics induced by axially symmetric fields, the principal possibility of generation of singular beams that bear optical vortices is demonstrated with the help of the effects of parametric crystal optics in single crystals under the action of non-hogeneous mechanical stresses, electric field and under the acousto-optic and acousto-gyration interaction. The possibility of controlling the efficiency of spin-orbital transformation by external fields and the possibility of spatial control of the position of a vortex beam in the course of acousto-optic interaction is shown.

R.O. Vlokh, A.M. Kostruba. Ellipsometry of ultrathin film structures. 2017.

ISBN 978-966-97386-3-9

The book is devoted to the development of new principles of ellipsometry and the ellipsometric methods for measuring the parameters of ultrathin surface layers with a thickness of less than 20 nm. On the basis of the established regularities of the ellipsometric response, the problem of the independent determination of the parameters of ultrathin transparent film structures, under the conditions of strong correlation between these parameters was solved, which allowed to improve significantly the accuracy of the result. The method of calculating of the mean square error of the parameters of the absorbing film is proposed, which permits combining the analysis of the sensitivity of ellipsometric measurements with correlation analysis and simplifies the procedure for optimizing the conditions of the ellipsometric experiment.
