NUST MISIS Became Member of National Quantum Laboratory

In November 25, Russia’s state nuclear corporation Rosatom launched the National Quantum Laboratory (NQL), a federal project that aims to develop a quantum computer by the end of 2024. NUST MISIS and MIPT, along with other universities and Russia’s leading quantum computing companies, have joined the project. The consortium aims to unite efforts and resources of the participants to strengthen the country’s positions in the global quantum marketplace.

Scientists Developed an Efficient Way to Produce Low-Cost Heatsinks

NUST MISIS scientists found a way to reduce the cost of industrial and electronics heatsinks production up to 10 times. Consequently, the product itself would also cost less. The proposed methods presume the use of rubbers and silicon carbide as components, i.e. these components are mixed, pressed and sintered. The article on the research is published in Polymers.

Russian Scientists Develop World Most-Sensitive Photon Video Detector

Scientists from NUST MISIS National Technological Initiative Center “Quantum Communications” are developing the world’s first prototype of an infrared photon video detector. This will be a camera so powerful that it would be able to track the movement of single particles. The camera will be equipped with a 1000-pixel matrix, and such a system will be used in a number of areas where high-precision measurements are required: secure communications, including satellite ones, quantum computing, and diagnostic medicine. The development is carried out within a contract with the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation.
