Perovskites are a relatively new class of semiconductors used in optoelectronics, which are considered to be an efficient alternative to the silicone that is traditionally used in solar cells. To solve the main issue — instability — the scientists turned to methylammonium lead iodide (MAPbI₃).
A scientist from the National University of Science and Technology MISIS (NUST MISIS) has proposed a fresh neural network alternative for controlling metallurgical furnaces. This alternative could boost energy efficiency by 10 percent. An article on this invention is published in Procedia Computer Science journal.
Researchers from the National University of Science and Technology “MISIS” developed a database that will help create new grades of steels. This will to speed up the process of creating innovative steel grades with specified strength and ductility allow at least 10 times, which will allow manufacturing car bodies of the most complex shapes. Article on the research is published in “Calphad”.
Scientists from the National University of Science and Technology MISIS measured the number of trace impurities in the ingots of ancient lead from the sunken ship of the ancient Romans, using a novel technology. It was shown that lead, which stayed underwater for 1500 years, contains such a small amount of radioactive elements — Uranium and Thorim, that it can be used without any purification in one of the most “demanding” areas — Nuclear physics — in the study of elementary particles. The experiment on the selection and determination of micro-impurities was carried out in cooperation with colleagues from the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research and the National Center for Scientific Research (France). An article about the development published in the journal Talanta.
La Universidad Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología de Moscú (MISIS, por sus siglas en ruso) empieza a impartir un nuevo programa iPHD en materiales cuánticos, además de másteres sobre ’Tecnologías cuánticas de materiales y estructuras’.
Scientists from NUST MISIS and IPCE RAS (Moscow, Russia) together with Italian colleagues from University of Rome Tor Vergata managed to significantly increase stability and effectiveness of perovskite elements — promising materials for solar energy — by adding a layer of copper iodide (CuI). The article on the research is published in “Materials”.
