Gold Becomes More Accessible

NUST MISIS scientists have developed a new, cheaper, and faster method of gold extraction, one of the most demanded metals on the microelectronics market.

You Don`t Have to Brush Your Teeth Any More: New Generation of Dental Materials Prevent Caries at 99.999%

Scientists from NUST MISIS have created a methodology that can become the basis of a fundamentally new method of antibacterial therapy. It has broad opportunities for use in dentistry, maxillo facial surgery, the treatment of ENT diseases, and other medical fields. The created oxide nanoparticles of iron, zinc, titanium, and other metals in dental materials have a unique property: they work as antibiotics without side effects.

Developments for Arctic are Among NUST MISIS`s Priority Areas

From March 28th to 30th, the International Arctic Forum “Arctic: Territory of Dialogue” was held in Arkhangelsk. The Forum is one of the main 4 economic forums in Russia, as well as the largest platform for joint discussion with international partners of current issues and prospects of development in the Arctic region. The central theme of the 2017 Forum was “People and the Arctic”.

Creation of a New Family of Substances is Experimentally Proved

For the first time ever, the representative of a family of 2D substances — copper oxide — was experimentally obtained. The substance has already demonstrated some unusual properties which can not only expand the field of experiments with graphene, but also can set a new direction in microelectronics. An article on the achievement of the scientists from NUST MISIS, FSBI TISNCM, IBCP RAS, and international colleagues from NIMS (Japan) was published in the prestigious journal NanoScale.

On March 17th, 2017, NUST MISIS presented the strategy of the University`s development at the meeting of The Council on Competitiveness Enhancement of Leading Russian Universities among Global Research and Education Centers. The strategy’s 2016 results, presented by NUST MISIS, received high praise from the Council`s experts.

NUST MISIS to Train Specialists for EuroChem`s Potash Plants

NUST MISIS and EuroChem have signed a general agreement of long-term cooperation to institute a training program of highly skilled specialists in the field of mining & technology, as well as the implementation of fundamental and applied research in mining & engineering works.

How Fullerite Becomes Harder Than Diamond

Physicists have simulated the structure of a new material based on fullerite and single crystal diamond to show how this material can obtain ultrahigh hardness. This discovery allows the estimations the potential conditions for obtaining ultrahard materials. The results were published in the Carbon journal.

NUST MISIS Prominent in QS World University Rankings by Subject

For the first time, NUST MISIS has entered the QS World University Rankings by Subject and is now featured in 4 of 46 subjects featured in this year`s edition: Engineering-Mineral & Mining, Materials Science, Physics & Astronomy, and Engineering-Mechanical, Aeronautical & Manufacturing. Among these four subjects, NUST MSIS ranked best in Engineering-Mineral & Mining, taking 31st among all universities in the ranking. Among all of the university-participants of Project 5-100, NUST MISIS is the only university present in the Engineering-Mineral & Mining and Materials Science rankings.

NUST MISIS Scientists Create Metamaterial for Ultra-Efficient Lasers

Humanity has faced a number of completely new problems when increasing the speed of transmitting information. Waves, flying through matter at high speeds, initiate the generation of secondary radiation, which interferes with a signal’s linear energy transmission, scattering it. Scientists at NUST MISIS are working to better understand, strengthen, and use this nonlinear system response. An article on the results of their studies has already been published in Scientific Reports.

Young NUST MISIS Scientists Receive the Moscow Government Award for the Development of Betavoltaic Converters

Sergey Legotin, a Candidate of Technical Sciences and an Associate Professor at the NUST MISIS Department of Semiconductor Electronics and Semiconductor Physics, and Andrey Krasnov, a PhD Student at NUST MISIS, have received the 2016 Moscow Government Award for young scientists. Their project, aimed at the development of betavoltaic converters for an independent power supply in the category “Aviation and Space Technology”, has already received 1 million Rubles.

NUST MISIS Branch in Tajikistan to Train Mining Engineers

On February 27th, 2017, at a meeting between Alevtina Chernikova, the Rector of NUST MISIS, and Nuriddin Said, the Republic of Tajikistan`s Minister of Education & Science, an agreement was reached to establish a new department to train mining engineers at the NUST MISIS branch in Dushanbe.
