  • Scientists from Tomsk took part in United Scientific Councils of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences

    3 jun 2024
    In Novosibirsk, meetings of 11 United Scientific Councils of SB RAS took place. Anatoly Maznoy – Deputy Director for Science at Tomsk Scientific Center of SB RAS – spoke at the USC on physical sciences, presenting a report on the modification of powder and granular materials by applying a rare-earth metal (REM) coatings. This implementation-ready result was achieved through successful collaboration of several scientific divisions of the Tomsk Scientific Center.

  • TSC SB RAS researchers studied patterns and mechanisms of the formation of the surface alloys

    20 feb 2024
    The results of a comprehensive study conducted at Tomsk Scientific Center SB RAS showed mechanisms of the formation of the W–Zr surface alloys. Based on the obtained results, a scheme was proposed describing the formation of the surface alloys (SAs) upon low-energy high-current electron beam (LEHCEB) processing. The study was published in Vacuum.
  • A new nanopaticles based technology to manufacture environmentally safe filtering materials

    11 dec 2023
    Scientists from Tomsk State University, Tomsk Polytechnic University and Tomsk Scientific Center of Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences published a monograph “Materials with polyfunctional properties based on nanoparticles modified fibers” which presents an advanced technology for manufacturing nanofilters to purify liquid and gas media.
  • The TSC SB RAS researchers introduced carbide-containing materials produced using plastic waste

    27 nov 2023

    The researchers of the Tomsk Scientific Center produced valuable titanium carbides using the highly exothermic reaction between PET bottles and Ti powder as well as a hydrogen-containing gaseous by-product which can be used as fuel for heat and power units. These carbides are similar in their properties to the reference ones. The research is published in Green Chemical Engineering.

  • 21-06-2024   Novel catalysts for improved methanol production using carbon dioxide dehydrogenation Encapsulating copper nanoparticles within hydrophobic porous silicate crystals has been shown to significantly enhance the catalytic activity of copper-zinc oxide catalysts used in methanol synthesis via CO2 hydrogenation. The innovative encapsulation structure effectively inhibits the thermal aggregation of copper particles, leading to enhanced hydrogenation activity and increased methanol production. This breakthrough paves the way for more efficient methanol synthesis from CO2.
  • 21-06-2024   Prying open the AI black box Meet SQUID, a new computational tool. Compared with other genomic AI models, SQUID is more consistent, reduces background noise, and can yield better predictions regarding critical mutations. The new system aims to bring scientists closer to their findings' true medical implications.
  • 21-06-2024   Promise green hydrogen may not always be fulfilled Green hydrogen often, but certainly not always, leads to CO2 gains.
  • 21-06-2024   Unifying behavioral analysis through animal foundation models Behavioral analysis can provide a lot of information about the health status or motivations of a living being. A new technology makes it possible for a single deep learning model to detect animal motion across many species and environments. This 'foundational model', called SuperAnimal, can be used for animal conservation, biomedicine, and neuroscience research.
  • 21-06-2024   Membrane protein analogues could accelerate drug discovery Researchers have created a deep learning pipeline for designing soluble analogues of key protein structures used in pharmaceutical development, sidestepping the prohibitive cost of extracting these proteins from cell membranes.
  • 21-06-2024   Lab-grown muscles reveal mysteries of rare muscle diseases Biomedical engineers have grown muscles in a lab to better understand and test treatments for a group of extremely rare muscle disorders called dysferlinopathy or limb girdle muscular dystrophies 2B (LGMD2B). The research revealed the biological mechanisms underlying the disease and showed that a combination of existing treatments could alleviate its symptoms.
  • 21-06-2024   Scientists at uOttawa develop innovative method to validate quantum photonics circuits performance A team of researchers has developed an innovative technique for evaluating the performance of quantum circuits. This significant advancement represents a substantial leap forward in the field of quantum computing.
  • 21-06-2024   Iron meteorites hint that our infant solar system was more doughnut than dartboard Iron meteorites are remnants of the metallic cores of the earliest asteroids in our solar system. Iron meteorites contain refractory metals, such as iridium and platinum, that formed near the sun but were transported to the outer solar system. New research shows that for this to have happened, the protoplanetary disk of our solar system had to have been doughnut-shaped because the refractory metals could not have crossed the large gaps in a target-shaped disk of concentric rings. The paper suggests that the refractory metals moved outward as the protoplanetary disk rapidly expanded, and were trapped in the outer solar system by Jupiter.
  • 21-06-2024   Scientists discover new behavior of membranes that could lead to unprecedented separations Argonne scientists have used isoporous membranes - membranes with pores of equal size and shape - and recirculation to create separations at the nanoscale that overcome previous limitations.
  • 21-06-2024   Supermassive black hole appears to grow like a baby star Supermassive black holes pose unanswered questions for astronomers around the world, not least 'How do they grow so big?' Now, an international team of astronomers has discovered a powerful rotating, magnetic wind that they believe is helping a galaxy's central supermassive black hole to grow. The swirling wind, revealed with the help of the ALMA telescope in nearby galaxy ESO320-G030, suggests that similar processes are involved both in black hole growth and the birth of stars.

An interactive web application allows users to search 40,581 places and 5,323 metro areas around the globe to match the expected future climate in each city with the current climate of another location, providing a relatable picture of what is likely in store.
  • 21-06-2024   Scientists devise algorithm to engineer improved enzymes Scientists have prototyped a new method for 'rationally engineering' enzymes to deliver improved performance. They have devised an algorithm, which takes into account an enzyme's evolutionary history, to flag where mutations could be introduced with a high likelihood of delivering functional improvements. Their work could have significant, wide-ranging impacts across a suite of industries, from food production to human health.
