The NTI Centers for Competences, created on the basis of SkolTech, NUST MISIS and ITMO University, will be participating in the development of technological standards and the preparation of market and technological expertise in the NTI and digital economy spheres. A series of relevant agreements between the Centers and the “Cyber-Physical Systems” Technical Committee on the basis of RVC were announced as part of the “NTI Ecosystem” Forum held in Sochi.
Silicon Paradox: NUST MISIS Scientists Discover “Impossible” Material according to the Laws of Modern Chemistry
An international team of physicists and materials scientists from NUST MISIS, Bayerisches Geoinstitut (Germany), Linkoping University (Sweden), and the California Institute of Technology (U.S.) has discovered an “impossible” modification of silica-coesite-IV and coasite-V materials, which shouldn’t exist if modern laws of Chemistry are correct. Their structure is an exception to the generally accepted rules for the formation of chemical bonds in inorganic materials formulated by Linus Pauling, who won the 1954 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for that discovery. The research results were published in the international scientific journal Nature Communications on November 15th, 2018.
