  • 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 .

  • 20-05-2022   Using everyday WiFi to help robots see and navigate better indoors Engineers have developed a low cost, low power technology to help robots accurately map their way indoors, even in poor lighting and without recognizable landmarks or features. The technology uses WiFi signals, instead of light, to help the robot 'see' where it's going.
  • 20-05-2022   Scientists devise method to prevent deadly hospital infections without antibiotics Some 1.7 million Americans each year acquire hospital infections, resulting in nearly 100,000 deaths from infection-related complications. The biggest culprits: medical devices like catheters, stents and heart valves, whose surfaces often become covered with harmful bacterial films. A novel surface treatment developed by a UCLA-led team of scientists stops microbes from adhering to medical devices. The new findings are published May 19 in the journal Advanced Materials.
  • 20-05-2022   Is it topological? A new materials database has the answer A new materials database reveals more than 90,000 known 'topological' materials with persistent electronic properties.
  • 20-05-2022   Human behavior is key to building a better long-term COVID forecast From extreme weather to another wave of COVID-19, forecasts give decision-makers valuable time to prepare. When it comes to COVID, though, long-term forecasting is a challenge, because it involves human behavior.
  • 20-05-2022   Ghostly 'mirror world' might be cause of cosmic controversy New research suggests an unseen 'mirror world' of particles that interacts with our world only via gravity that might be the key to solving a major puzzle in cosmology today - the Hubble constant problem. The Hubble constant is the rate of expansion of the universe today. Predictions for this rate are significantly slower than the rate found by our most precise local measurements. This discrepancy is one that many cosmologists have been trying to solve by changing our current cosmological model.
  • 19-05-2022   How a cognitive bias is blocking the rise of electric cars What are the barriers to the adoption of electric cars? Although the main financial and technological obstacles have been removed, their market share still needs to increase. In a recent study, a team investigated the cognitive factors that still dissuade many people from switching to electric cars. They found that car owners systematically underestimate the capacity of electric driving ranges to meet their daily needs.
