  • Tomsk s scientists implement an integrated approach to producing polymer coatings

    6 feb 2023
    Scientists from IHCE (SB RAS), Tomsk State University, and TSC (SB RAS) have laid the foundations for the synthesis of different polymer coatings with unique properties using a low-pressure glow discharge. Such polymers are in demand in medicine, mechanical engineering, and as protective coatings exploited in space and in the harsh conditions of the Arctic. These results were reported in the high-ranking journal Vacuum .
  • Federal Scientific Center of Agroecology of RAS Volgograd will use Tomsk digital weather stations for environmental monitoring

    9 jan 2023
    Six modern digital weather stations, developed and manufactured by scientists from the Tomsk scientific center of SB RAS in collaboration with colleagues from the Institute of Monitoring of climatic and ecological systems of SB RAS were delivered to the Federal Scientific Center of Agroecology of RAS in Volgograd.
  • 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.

  • 10-06-2023   Liquid metal sticks to surfaces without a binding agent Everyday materials such as paper and plastic could be transformed into electronic 'smart devices' by using a simple new method to apply liquid metal to surfaces, according to scientists. The study demonstrates a technique for applying a liquid metal coating to surfaces that do not easily bond with liquid metal. The approach is designed to work at a large scale and may have applications in wearable testing platforms, flexible devices, and soft robotics.
  • 9-06-2023   The first prehistoric wind instruments discovered in the Levant Although the prehistoric site of Eynan-Mallaha in northern Israel has been thoroughly examined since 1955, it still holds some surprises for scientists. Seven prehistoric wind instruments known as flutes were recently identified. The discovery of these 12,000 year-old aerophones is extremely rare - in fact, they are thought to be the first to be discovered in the Near East.
  • 9-06-2023   Mirror, mirror on the wall... Now we know there are chiral phonons for sure New findings settle the dispute: phonons can be chiral. This fundamental concept, discovered using circular X-ray light, sees phonons twisting like a corkscrew through quartz.
  • 9-06-2023   'Hot Jupiters' may not be orbiting alone Astronomers challenge longstanding beliefs about the isolation of 'hot Jupiters' and proposes a new mechanism for understanding the exoplanets' evolution.
  • 9-06-2023   Breakthrough: Scientists develop artificial molecules that behave like real ones Scientists have developed synthetic molecules that resemble real organic molecules. A collaboration of researcher can now simulate the behavior of real molecules by using artificial molecules.
  • 8-06-2023   Elusive planets play 'hide and seek' with CHEOPS Astronomers have clearly identified the existence of four new exoplanets. The four mini-Neptunes are smaller and cooler, and more difficult to find than the so-called Hot Jupiter exoplanets which have been found in abundance.
  • 8-06-2023   Aviation turbulence strengthened as the world warmed New research shows that clear-air turbulence increased in various regions around the world from 1979 - 2020.
  • 8-06-2023   Chatgpt designs a robot Poems, essays and even books - is there anything the OpenAI platform ChatGPT can't handle? These new AI developments have inspired researchers to dig a little deeper: For instance, can ChatGPT also design a robot? And is this a good thing for the design process, or are there risks?
  • 8-06-2023   New study could help unlock 'game-changing' batteries for electric vehicles and aviation Researchers have revealed the mechanisms that cause lithium metal solid-state batteries to fail. The new insights could help overcome the technical issues with solid-state batteries, unlocking a game-changing technology for electric vehicles and aviation.
  • 8-06-2023   Physicists discover an exotic material made of bosons Take a lattice - a flat section of a grid of uniform cells, like a window screen or a honeycomb - and lay another, similar lattice above it. But instead of trying to line up the edges or the cells of both lattices, give the top grid a twist so that you can see portions of the lower one through it. This new, third pattern is a moiré, and it's between this type of overlapping arrangement of lattices of tungsten diselenide and tungsten disulfide where physicists found some interesting material behaviors.
  • 8-06-2023   What made the brightest cosmic explosion of all time so exceptional? Last year, telescopes around the world registered the brightest cosmic explosion of all time. Astrophysicists can now explain what made it so dazzling.
  • 7-06-2023   Water molecules define the materials around us A new paper argues that materials like wood, bacteria, and fungi belong to a newly identified class of matter, 'hydration solids.' The new findings emerged from ongoing research into the strange behavior of spores, dormant bacterial cells.
