Dr. Vitalii Shtender

I joined the BMS group as a research engineer in 2021. I am experised in synthesis of intermetallic compounds/metal hydrides and their crystallography, solid state chemistry/physics and materials science. I have broad experience in a design and optimization of novel intermetallic systems, including hydrogenation, magnetocalloric, permanent magnets and others.
