Anton Chyrkin

Doctor, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Environmental Inorganic Chemistry

My research is mainly focused on high-temperature corrosion of metallic materials such as Ni-base superalloys widely used in the gas turbine technology as well as protective coatings for single-crystal turbine blades. My previous studies aimed at developing novel modelling approaches to quantitatively describe the degradation phenomena in high-temperature materials to better understand the underlying corrosion mechanisms as well as to predict lifetime limits of these materials in given applications. Currently, I am involved in developing a novel workstation for in-situ studies of corrosion processes and analysis of the nano-scale corrosion products. Currently, I work in the SOFC project studying fundamental aspects of degradation mechanisms related to oxidation of high-alloyed ferritic steels exposed to dual atmospheres.
