    22 nov 2021

    A new foreign researcher has been employed at the Tomsk Scientific Center (TSC) of the SB RAS. Sven Rutkowski, a highly qualified specialist in physical chemistry and engineering, has joined its research team in October 2021. The area of his scientific interests is physical and chemical surface treatment methods for medical devices.

  • How can corrosion of magnesium alloys be prevented?

    28 sep 2021

    Collaboration of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (SB RAS), including both Tomsk Scientific Center (TSC) and Institute of High Current Electronics (IHCE), with Milan Polytechnic University (Italy) continues. Scientists from two countries have proposed optimal methods for electron-beam processing of magnesium alloys, which enable to improve their corrosion resistance by several times. One of the results of this international cooperation is the ‘Surface properties modification alloys by low energy high current pulsed electron-beam’ paper in the ‘Surface and Coatings Technology’ journal (Q1 according to the Web of Science database).

  • 30-11-2021   Largest comet ever observed was active at near-record distance Astronomers show that comet Bernardinelli-Bernstein (BB), the largest comet ever discovered, was active long before previously thought, meaning the ice within it is vaporizing and forming an envelope of dust and vapor known as a coma. Only one active comet has been observed farther from the sun, and it was much smaller than comet BB.
  • 30-11-2021   Team builds first living robots that can reproduce Scientists have discovered a new form of biological reproduction - and created self-replicating living robots. Made from frog cells, these computer-designed organisms gather single cells inside a Pac-Man-shaped 'mouth' - and release Xenobot 'babies' that look and move like themselves. Then the offspring go and do the same - over and over.
  • 30-11-2021   New discovery opens the way for brain-like computers Research has long strived to develop computers to work as energy efficiently as our brains. A study has now succeeded in combining a memory function with a calculation function in the same component. The discovery opens the way for more efficient technologies, everything from mobile phones to self-driving cars.
  • 29-11-2021   Programmable interaction between quantum magnets Researchers have succeeded in their aim of not only changing the strength but also the nature of the interaction between microscopic quantum magnets, known as spins. Instead of falling into a state of complete disorder, the especially prepared magnets can maintain their original orientation for a long period. With these findings, the physicists have successfully demonstrated a programmable control of spin interactions in isolated quantum systems.
  • 29-11-2021   Development of an artificial vision device capable of mimicking human optical illusions Researchers have developed an ionic artificial vision device capable of increasing the edge contrast between the darker and lighter areas of an mage in a manner similar to that of human vision. This first-ever synthetic mimicry of human optical illusions was achieved using ionic migration and interaction within solids. It may be possible to use the device to develop compact, energy-efficient visual sensing and image processing hardware systems capable of processing analog signals.
  • 27-11-2021   In the quantum realm, not even time flows as you might expect A team of physicists has shown how quantum systems can simultaneously evolve along two opposite time arrows both forward and backward in time. The study necessitates a rethink of how the flow of time is understood and represented in contexts where quantum laws play a crucial role.
