about: Leonid V. Skripnikov

Leonid Skripnikov:

Division of Innovations, Quantum Chemistry Laboratory, Petersburg Nuclear Physics Institute.

Also Associate Professor at Department of Physics, Saint-Petersburg State University




PhD on Theoretical Physics, Petersburg Nuclear Physics Institute; Quantum Chemistry, St.-Petersburg State University, Russia.

Research interests:

  • Methods of precise correlation calculations of molecules with heavy atoms. Relativistic effective core potential (pseudopotential); variation of fundamental constants with time and fine structure in heavy-atom molecules; calculation of electronic structure of molecules; electric dipole moment of an electron; methods of calculations and programming;
  • Quantum-chemical concept (theory and calculation) of bond orders in molecules, correlation with "classical" concepts; decomposition of quantum-chemical bond orders into components; see http://sites.google.com/site/aosbbosss
  • Programming - 1D, 2D and 3D visualization of calculated electronic structure of molecules (molecular orbitals, electronic density, spectra).
