NUST MISIS scientists jointly with international colleagues have managed to observe the inner structure of photonic crystals, the most promising materials of the 21st century. The work is published in the Small journal.
Alyona Nikiforova, a high school student from the NUST MISIS engineering class project from Moscow school № 1080, has won the Russian stage of the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. She will present her scientific and practical development in Pittsburgh (the U.S.) in May 2018. Professor Mikhail Astakhov, head of NUST MISIS Department of Physical Chemistry, is her research adviser.
Alisher Usmanov’s “Art, Science, and Sport” Charity Foundation will contribute 100 Million Rubles to the NUST MISIS Endowment Fund. Usmanov is a well-known Russian businessman and philanthropist.
Researchers from the NUST MISIS Engineering Center for Industrial Technologies have developed an innovative technology for the production of magnetic materials and permanent magnets at a reduced cost. This engineering solution will allow scientists to produce affordable and efficient domestic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) devices for wide use in public health clinics. According to the developers` estimates, the cost of an analysis with the new MRI technology will be half of what it is now.
NUST MISIS and ChelPipe have signed a cooperation “roadmap” through which at least two high-tech projects related to pipe manufacturing will be implemented in 2018. The “Leadership program” is based on NUST MISIS’s master`s degree program and ChelPipe`s “Trainees program”.
A technology for producing a wide range of soil modifiers based on industrial waste has been developed at the NUST MISIS Center for Energy Efficiency. The use of the innovative modifiers allows for a significant reduction in the cost of roadside construction by improving the soil’s physical properties at a worksite.
Scientists Overcame a Key Barrier for the Use of Two-Dimensional Materials in the Electronic Industry
An international team of scientists led by NUST MISIS and TU Dresden Professor Gotthard Seifert, one of the leading specialists in the field of two-dimensional materials, has solved a problem that has for almost half a century prevented the use of two-dimensional materials in microelectronics. The paper was published in ASC Nano journal.
A group of 1st year master`s degree students from the NUST MISIS College of Information Business Systems has suggested a solution to the problem of medication intake for those who have bronchiectasis. The suggestion is a special bracelet used to control the use of an inhaler and to monitor the patient`s condition. The prototype was presented as part of the IBM open student hackathon held through the support of Bayer.
The grand opening of NUST MISIS and Vnesheconombank’s Center of Blockchain Competencies, Russia`s first specialized expert center for the implementation of blockchain technologies in the field of public administration, recently took place in Moscow.
NUST MISIS’s project for “Large-size semi-translucent solar panels with the use of stable perovskite architectures”, led by Aldo Di Carlo, Professor of Optoelectronics and Nanoelectronics at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”, has won in the sixth contest in the Megagrant Program.
