Russian Scientists Developed the Most Heat-Resistant Material Ever

Group of scientists from NUST MISIS developed a ceramic material with the highest melting point among currently known compounds. Due to the unique combination of physical, mechanical and thermal properties, the material is promising for use in the most heat-loaded components of aircraft, such as nose fairings, jet engines and sharp front edges of wings operating at temperatures above 2000 °C. The results are published in Ceramics International.

Coursera opens access for NUST MISIS students

NUST MISIS has been included in the list of 7 Russian universities to get free access to Coursera, one of the biggest international educational platforms. The access presupposes free usage of more that 4000 online courses from the best universities of the world.

Implants Will Survive Up to 6 Times More Effectively

Scientists from NUST MISIS and Gamalei Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology found a way to increase the survival efficiency of skull polymer implants by an average of 4-6 times doping it with proteins. This means that the patient would recover faster, and in the future the newly grown bone would be able to withstand the same loads as before the operation. An article about the development is published in Polymer Testing.

Scientists Developed Bioactive Material with Combinatory Antibacterial Effect

Scientists from NUST MISIS developed a bioactive coating for titanium implants that can completely destroy bacteria. Its special porous structure with bioactive components in its composition would accelerate the implant’s survival, and the combinatorial action of active oxygen forms and silver ions will ensure the effective destruction of various bacterial strains. An article about the development is published in the international journal Applied Surface Science.

“Theory of Invisibility”: Scientists Develop the General Principles of New Level Stealth Technologies

An international team of scientists from NUST MISIS, Scientific and Technological Center of Unique Instrumentation of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Polytechnic University of Turin (Italy) have developed an “invisibility theory”: principles that will allow objects to pass radar signals through, without “giving out” the location. At the same time, due to the reduction in the amount of material for stealth coating, the cost of such disguise will be significantly lower. An article on the development is published in Optics Express.
