As a result, a scientific and technical cooperation agreement was signed with the Siberian Federal Scientific Center for Agrobiotechnology of the Russian Academy of Sciences, as well as promising contacts were established with large Russian companies, such as Nornickel, Gazprom, medical, construction, and shipbuilding companies.

  • Tomsk scientists have developed a mathematical model that will help optimize the synthesis of complex metal compounds

    23 jun 2022

    Scientists of the Tomsk Scientific Center of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences Oleg Lapshin and Oksana Ivanova proposed a mathematical model for studying two-step mechanochemical synthesis of inorganic substances in wave combustion mode. This model, published in the high-ranking journal Powder Technology, will help find optimal modes of production of expensive composites and significantly develop a new macrokinetic theory.

  • 7-10-2022   Novel navigation strategies for microscopic swimmers Autonomous optimal navigation of microswimmers is in fact possible, as researchers have recently shown. In contrast to the targeted navigation of boats, the motion of swimmers at the microscale is strongly disturbed by fluctuations. The researchers now described a navigation strategy for microswimmers that does not need an external interpreter. Their findings may contribute to the understanding of transport mechanisms in the microcosm as well as to applications such as targeted drug delivery.
  • 7-10-2022   Optical foundations illuminated by quantum light Despite being considered well established, the physics of optical waves have some fundamental aspects, which are still under debate. One of these effects, the anomalous behavior of focused light fields, has now been investigated in a new light, a quantum light. Researchers have shown that quantum light with a well-defined photon number behaves differently to standard focused laser beams. This finding both deepens understanding of the phenomena and enables super-sensitive distance measurements.
  • 7-10-2022   Green hydrogen: Faster progress with modern X-ray sources In order to produce green hydrogen, water can be split up via electrocatalysis, powered by renewable sources such as sun or wind. A review article shows how modern X-ray sources such as BESSY II can advance the development of suitable electrocatalysts. In particular, X-ray absorption spectroscopy can be used to determine the active states of catalytically active materials for the oxygen evolution reaction. This is an important contribution to developing efficient catalysts from inexpensive and widely available elements.
  • 7-10-2022   The Secret of Swing: Downbeat delays Jazz must swing - jazz musicians agree on that. However, even 100 years after the beginnings of jazz, it is still unclear what exactly constitutes the swing feel. With a sophisticated experiment and data analyses on more than 450 well-known jazz solos, physicists together with psychologists have unraveled a secret of swing. They were able to demonstrate that certain systematic deviations in timing are a key component of swing. These microtiming deviations are so small that they are not perceived as such even by professional jazz musicians, who nonetheless are using them unconsciously.
  • 7-10-2022   Cosmic rays used to track and visualize tropical cyclones offer new perspectives High-energy muon particles created in the atmosphere have allowed researchers to explore the structures of storms in a way that traditional visualization techniques, such as satellite imaging, cannot. The detail offered by this new technique could aid researchers modeling storms and related weather effects. This could also lead to more accurate early warning systems.
  • 7-10-2022   Superconducting hardware could scale up brain-inspired computing Scientists have long looked to the brain as an inspiration for designing computing systems. Some researchers have recently gone even further by making computer hardware with a brainlike structure. These 'neuromorphic chips' have already shown great promise, but they have used conventional digital electronics, limiting their complexity and speed.
