Interaction of hydrogen isotopes

               with structural materials


       The thirteenth International School-Conference IHISM'19 is a continuation of the traditional International Conferences and International Schools "Interaction of hydrogen isotopes with structural materials" (IHISM). The first IHISM seminar was held in 2001 in Sarov. The seminar acquired the status of the International Conference in 2004 on the basis of the decision of the International and Program Organizing Committee IHISM'04. The next decision IHISM'04, which was successfully implemented, is the organization and conduct of the conference of the International Summer School for young scientists and specialists. Since the first school in 2005 on the basis of Petrozavodsk State University, this event has become a traditional event and was held annually in various cities of Russia: Petrozavodsk, St. Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod, Sarov, Voronezh, Zvenigorod, Moscow. A special place in the organization of the School belongs to the St. Petersburg State University, where one of the inspirers of the idea of ​​the School Alexander Kurdyuv, a professor at St. Petersburg State University, a leading scientist in the field of studying hydrogen interaction with structural materials and solids, a talented organizer and leader, worked. He and the staff of the laboratory he directed at the physics department of the St. Petersburg State University were permanent members of the school organizing committee. After the death of A.A. Kurdyumova in 2008 School of young scientists and specialists unanimously decided by its participants and organizers was given his name.

       This event has long been popular among scientists engaged in research of structural materials and their interactions with hydrogen and its isotopes. The school will present overview reports related to the subject of the School, a wide range of issues in the areas of: kinetics and thermodynamics of the interaction of hydrogen isotopes with solids, including the effects of accumulation of radiogenic helium; hydrides and hydride conversions, structural transformations and mechanical properties, apparatus and methods of investigation.
