  • High-tech equipment was delivered to Italy

    22 feb 2022
    Scientists from the Tomsk Scientific Center of the SB RAS in cooperation with the innovative company "Mikrosplav" delivered high-tech equipment to two Italian customers. Students and teachers will use it to conduct scientific and experimental works at the Beam Technology Center (Milan Polytechnic University), and the company GalvanoTechnik S.p.A. (Gardone Val Trompia) will integrate the equipment into the production line for deposition of coatings on products and parts.

  • New ceramic sintering furnace

    9 feb 2022
    The scientists of the Tomsk Scientific Center of the SB RAS manufactured a prototype of an energy-saving sintering furnace that uses the filtration combustion of natural gas and is designed to synthesize and sinter a wide range of refractory ceramics used in energetics, metallurgy, and aerospace engineering.
  • New catalysts for wastewater treatment

    11 jan 2022

    The scientists of the Tomsk Scientific Center of the SB RAS have developed a new cost-effective method to produce a highly effective catalyst from waste ferroalloys by impregnation with carbon nitride. Filters made from this material serve several times longer than their analogs. The results of this research were reported in two high-ranking journals, such as Ceramics International and Materials Letters .

  • 18-05-2022   Researchers create photonic materials for powerful, efficient light-based computing Researchers are developing new photonic materials that could one day help enable low power, ultra-fast, light-based computing. The unique materials, known as topological insulators, are like wires that have been turned inside out, where the current runs along the outside and the interior is insulated. In their latest work the researchers demonstrated a new approach to create the materials that uses a novel, chained, honeycomb lattice design.
  • 18-05-2022   Researchers use galaxy as a 'cosmic telescope' to study heart of the young universe A unique new instrument, coupled with a powerful telescope and a little help from nature, has given researchers the ability to peer into galactic nurseries at the heart of the young universe.
  • 18-05-2022   Nuclear physics and extreme environments of cosmic explosions Researchers have helped peer inside a nova - a type of astrophysical nuclear explosion - without leaving Earth. These stellar events help forge the universe's chemical elements, and astronomers have explored their nature with an intense isotope beam and a custom experimental device with record-setting sensitivity.
  • 18-05-2022   Key to reducing defects in multimaterials Functionally graded materials (FGMs) are high-performance materials with expected applications in aerospace, automobiles, defense, and medicine. These materials are usually employed in conditions of extreme temperature and pressure, therefore making it important for them to be as defect-free as possible. Now, researchers have found a way to minimize defects in FGMs by manipulating the gradient of the elemental composition.
  • 18-05-2022   New model could improve matches between students and schools Simultaneous and uncoordinated school admissions in situations where students have multiple options can lead to unfilled seats and a lot of stress for families and administrators. To create a fairer, more efficient system, market design researchers created a matchmaking model that draws from game theory, computer science and industrial engineering.
  • 18-05-2022   Reliable diagnostics at the tip of your finger Biomarkers are components that may be present in biological samples and are related to specific diseases. Therefore, doctors can analyze biological samples from a patient to check their health condition or to monitor the progress of a specific therapy. Typically, these samples need to be purified and diluted before the analysis, and current medical diagnostic techniques rely on healthcare facilities and laboratories for these routine analyses. This is a lengthy process that requires trained personnel and expensive instrumentation to extract, transport, store, process, and analyze the samples in centralized locations. Moreover, during a period of global crisis like the ongoing pandemic, the pressure of thousands of analysis requests can saturate and collapse the healthcare system.
