About the Authors

Dr. Alexander S. Rogachev is a head of the Laboratory of "Dynamics of Micro-heterogeneous Processes" in the Institute of Structural Macrokinetics and Materials Science, Russian Academy of Sciences; he is also Professor at National Research Technical University "Moscow Institute of Steel and Alloys" and Academician of the Word Academy of Ceramics. In research work, Dr. Rogachev primarily focuses on the mechanisms of phase and structure transformations during high-temperature rapid reactions and their relations to the mechanisms of combustion wave propagation in micro/nano-heterogeneous media. He has more than 30 years of experience working in the field of combustion synthesis. Author of more than 200 publications in this field.

Dr. Alexander Mukasyan is a Professor at Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, University of Notre Dame (USA). His scientific interest is related to a synthesis of advanced materials, nanotechnology, environmental science and novel alternative energy sources, including fuel cells, hydrogen production and storage. He is the author of three books and more than 200 research publications in archive journals and patents in the fields of engineering of advanced materials, catalysis, high energy density materials and heterogeneous combustion.
