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.

From Implants to Monitors: Magnetic Amorphous Metal Wires Point toward Imbedded Microthermometry

Materials scientists from NUST MISIS led by Professor Larisa Panina, Doctor of Physical & Mathematical Sciences, have demonstrated that microwires based on magnetic amorphous metals can be used for embedded temperature sensors. The impedance (complex resistance) of such materials is very sensitive to temperature fluctuations, and its behavior at different frequencies can significantly vary. The research paper has been published in the Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials.

NUST MISIS Professor — Winner of the Scopus Awards Russia 2018

Professor Anvar Zakhidov from NUST MISIS is one of the most cited Russian scientists according to Scopus. The information & analytical company Elsevier, which specializes in science and medicine, announced the names of the most cited scientists according to Scopus’s abstracts and citations from the peer-reviewed scientific literature database. The list includes 19 Russian scientists.

NUST MISIS Presents Data Science Platform with Multilingual Search Function

The NUST MISIS Big Data Research Center is launching IRELA, a platform for the analysis of big data. The new Data Science platform is not focused on a specific industry and due to its multi-modularity, can be easily integrated into the IT-landscape of any field of activity. IRELA also has a multilingual search function, which is unique for the Russian market.

NUST MISIS Included in the Group of Leaders of Project 5-100

On October 26th, 2018, NUST MISIS presented the University`s development strategy at the meeting of the Council on Global Competitiveness Enhancement of Russian Universities among Global Leading Research and Education Centers (a.k.a. Project 5-100). The results of the “roadmap’s” implementation were highly valued by the Council’s experts, and NUST MISIS was lauded as one of the group’s leaders.

BIRTH OF A HYBRID: High-Temperature Synthesis under Pressure Helps to Combine Properties of Metals and Ceramics

Materials scientists from NUST MISIS and the Merzhanov Institute of Structural Macrokinetics & Materials Science have developed a new method for producing bulk MAX-phases — layered materials which simultaneously possess the properties of metals and ceramics. By combining the methods of self-propagating high-temperature synthesis and high-temperature shear deformation, it was possible to obtain sufficiently large samples of mixed titanium and aluminum carbide, which in the future can be used as high-temperature heating elements, according to the research paper published inCeramics International.

The NTI Center for Competences to Work on Russia`s Secure Communications

On October 31st, 2018, NUST MISIS hosted the opening ceremony of the National Center of Technological Initiative for Quantum Communication technology. Improvement of quantum communications facilities, training world-class specialists in the field of quantum engineering, research in the field of quantum network vulnerability, and the creation of quantum communication systems for satellites are among the Center’s main responsibilities. The center’s financing through 2022 will amount to 2 billion Rubles.
