Special Deformation of Nanotubes to Allow them to Change Conductivity

Scientists from the NUST MISIS Laboratory of Inorganic Nanomaterials together with their international colleagues have proved it possible to change the structural and conductive properties of nanotubes by stretching them. This can potentially expand nanotubes’ application into electronics and high-precision sensors such as microprocessors and high-precision detectors. The research article has been published in Ultramicroscopy.

For the First Time Ever, Scientists Successfully Implant a Polymeric Prosthesis Imitating Bone Structure

For the first time ever, a research team from the small innovative enterprise Biomimetix, implementing several NUST MISIS developments, has successfully implanted a biomimetic hybrid prosthesis imitating bone structure made from ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene and titanium alloy into a patient’s femoral bone. The successful surgery was carried out at the request of the “MedVet” veterinarian clinic.

NUST MISIS Hosts Conference on Additive Technologies in Aerospace

The Russian market of additive technologies may exceed 6 billion rubles in 2018, experts said at the meeting of the Coordination Council of the State Corporation Roscosmos, held by NUST MISIS and the Institute of Light Materials and Technologies. The expanding use of additive technologies in the aerospace industry was the main topic of the conference. According to experts, the domestic market for additive technologies is growing by an average of 20% every year. Thus, in 2017, the market amounted to about 5.3 billion Rubles, and by the end of 2018 it is expected to exceed 6 billion Rubles.
