NUST MISIS Young Scientists Received Government Award

Scientists Alexey Afanasiev, Andrey Ignatov, Olga Krivolapova, and Elena Tarasova were recognized with an award by the Russian Government in the fields of science and technology for young scientists for the development of metallurgical technology of fibrous magnetic materials for innovative fabrics that provide comprehensive protection of man against external influences.

In their work, the scientists solved the problem of development and development of technology for industrial production of a new generation of composite materials based on magnetically hard and magnetically soft ferromagnetic components.

Developed innovative production technology of magnetic fabric is introduced at the leading domestic manufacturing enterprises of PPE (personal protection equipment) such as LLC “Softeks”, LLC “Lirsot”, LLC “Avtohimeks”, and JSC “Elliot”.

The results of the implementations are in the interests of the Russian Emergencies Ministry. Protective suits were designed based on magnetic fabrics accepted for trial operation in fire units The Ministry of Emergency Situations.

The results were presented at national and international exhibitions and seminars (“Integrated Safety and Security-2011”, “Integrated Safety and Security-2012”, “VUZPROMEKSPO 2013”, the Hanover Fair 2013 ″) and awarded diplomas in competitive categories.
