  • 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).

  • 21-10-2021   New photonic chip for isolating light may be key to miniaturizing quantum devices Light plays a critical role in enabling 21st century quantum information applications. Limited by size, engineers need to miniaturize quantum devices, which requires re-thinking certain components for harnessing light. Researchers have designed a simple, compact photonic circuit that uses sound waves to rein in light. The team's measurements show that their approach to isolation currently outperforms all previous on-chip alternatives and is optimized for compatibility with atom-based sensors.
  • 21-10-2021   Two beams are better than one History's greatest couples rely on communication to make them so strong their power cannot be denied. But that's not just true for people, it's also true for lasers. According to new research from the USC Viterbi School of Engineering, adding two lasers together as a sort of optical 'it couple' promises to make wireless communications faster and more secure than ever before.
