  • Scientists from TSC SB RAS have proposed a cost-effective method to produce sialon

    21 nov 2022
    A team of scientists from the Laboratory of New Metallurgical Processes (Tomsk Scientific Center of the SB RAS) led by Konstantin Bolgaru developed a cost-effective method to produce expensive sialon. This resistant and refractory industrial material has been proposed to be produced from cheap raw materials, such as ferroalloy production wastes. These results are reported in the highly ranked journal Ceramics International.
  • Scientists from the Tomsk Scientific Center of the SB RAS have proposed a methodology for the formation of surface alloys

    17 oct 2022
    Researchers from the Laboratory of Advanced Technologies (Tomsk Scientific Center of the SB RAS) have developed a new methodology for producing a wide range of alloys. They derived an analytical formula that can select the optimal mode of formation of such alloys using an electron beam. The scientists successfully validated their findings experimentally on the example of a zirconium-chromium alloy. The results of this work were published in the highly ranked journal Materials Chemistry and Physics.

  • 26-01-2023   Watch this person-shaped robot liquify and escape jail, all with the power of magnets Inspired by sea cucumbers, engineers have designed miniature robots that rapidly and reversibly shift between liquid and solid states. On top of being able to shape-shift, the robots are magnetic and can conduct electricity. The researchers put the robots through an obstacle course of mobility and shape-morphing tests.
  • 26-01-2023   Wearable sensor uses ultrasound to provide cardiac imaging on the go Engineers and physicians have developed a wearable ultrasound device that can assess both the structure and function of the human heart. The portable device, which is roughly the size of a postage stamp, can be worn for up to 24 hours and works even during strenuous exercise.
  • 25-01-2023   Spinning food processing waste into 'gold' Scientists have taken the first step at estimating the best large-scale uses for food processing waste, first analyzing its contents and, based on those findings, proposing production opportunities ranging from sustainable fuels, biogas and electricity to useful chemicals and organic fertilizer.
  • 25-01-2023   Artificial photosynthesis uses sunlight to make biodegradable plastic Scientists have succeeded in synthesizing fumaric acid, a raw material for plastics, from CO2 powered by solar energy. Typically, fumaric acid is synthesized from petroleum as a raw material to make polybutylene succinate, a biodegradable plastic, but this research shows that it can be synthesized from CO2 and biomass-derived compounds using renewable energy.
  • 25-01-2023   Helpful disturbance: How non-linear dynamics can augment edge sensor time series Engineers have demonstrated a simple computational approach for supporting the classification performance of neural networks operating on sensor time series. The proposed technique involves feeding the recorded signal as an external forcing into an elementary non-linear dynamical system, and providing its temporal responses to this disturbance to the neural network alongside the original data.
  • 25-01-2023   Comparing airfares instead of seat size fairer indicator of passenger carbon emissions Allocating passenger aircraft emissions using airfares rather than travel class would give a more accurate idea of individual contributions, finds a new study. Including airfares in calculations shows which passengers contribute the most revenue to the airline operating the aircraft, thereby allowing the plane to fly.
  • 25-01-2023   Fish sensory organ key to improving navigational skills of underwater robots Scientists have been studying a fish sensory organ to understand cues for collective behavior which could be employed on underwater robots.
  • 25-01-2023   Plasma thrusters used on satellites could be much more powerful It was believed that Hall thrusters, an efficient kind of electric propulsion widely used in orbit, need to be large to produce a lot of thrust. Now, a new study suggests that smaller Hall thrusters can generate much more thrust - potentially making them candidates for interplanetary missions.
  • 25-01-2023   Were galaxies much different in the early universe? The most sensitive telescope now searching for radio signals from cosmic dawn, an era around 200 million years after the Big Bang when stars ignited, has doubled its sensitivity, a new paper reports. While not yet detecting this radiation - the redshifted 21-centimeter line - they have put new limits on the elemental composition of galaxies during the Epoch of Reionization. Early galaxies seem to be low in metals, fitting the most popular theory of cosmic evolution.
  • 25-01-2023   Recyclable mobile phone batteries a step closer with rust-busting invention Mobile phone batteries with a lifetime up to three times longer than today's technology could be a reality thanks to a recent innovation.
  • 25-01-2023   Mimicking an enigmatic property of circadian rhythms through an artificial chemical clock An innovative temperature-compensation mechanism for oscillating chemical reactions based on temperature-responsive gels has been developed. Experimental findings, alongside a detailed mathematical analysis, hint at the possibility that circadian rhythms found in nature may all rely on a similar mechanism, allowing their period to remain independent of temperature.
  • 25-01-2023   New DNA biosensor could unlock powerful, low-cost clinical diagnostics By flagging disease-associated DNA biomarkers, medical professionals can make early diagnoses and provide personalized treatments, but the typical screening methods can be laborious, expensive or limited in scope. Now, a new biosensor could pave the way to accessible and expansive diagnostics.
