  • Tomsk s scientists implement an integrated approach to producing polymer coatings

    6 feb 2023
    Scientists from IHCE (SB RAS), Tomsk State University, and TSC (SB RAS) have laid the foundations for the synthesis of different polymer coatings with unique properties using a low-pressure glow discharge. Such polymers are in demand in medicine, mechanical engineering, and as protective coatings exploited in space and in the harsh conditions of the Arctic. These results were reported in the high-ranking journal Vacuum .
  • Federal Scientific Center of Agroecology of RAS Volgograd will use Tomsk digital weather stations for environmental monitoring

    9 jan 2023
    Six modern digital weather stations, developed and manufactured by scientists from the Tomsk scientific center of SB RAS in collaboration with colleagues from the Institute of Monitoring of climatic and ecological systems of SB RAS were delivered to the Federal Scientific Center of Agroecology of RAS in Volgograd.
  • Scientists from TSC SB RAS have proposed a cost-effective method to produce sialon

    21 nov 2022
    A team of scientists from the Laboratory of New Metallurgical Processes (Tomsk Scientific Center of the SB RAS) led by Konstantin Bolgaru developed a cost-effective method to produce expensive sialon. This resistant and refractory industrial material has been proposed to be produced from cheap raw materials, such as ferroalloy production wastes. These results are reported in the highly ranked journal Ceramics International.

  • 6-06-2023   Programmable 3D printed wound dressing could improve treatment for burn, cancer patients Researchers have created a new type of wound dressing material using advanced polymers. This new dressing could enhance the healing process for burn patients and have potential applications for drug delivery in cancer treatment as well as in the cosmetic industry.
  • 6-06-2023   First detection of secondary supermassive black hole in a well-known binary system An international team of astronomers observed the second one of the two supermassive black holes circling each other in an active galaxy OJ 287.
  • 6-06-2023   The problems with coal ash start smaller than anyone thought Burning coal doesn't only pollute the air. The resulting ash can leach toxic chemicals into the local environments where it's kept. New research shows that the toxicity of various ash stockpiles relies heavily on its nanoscale structures, which vary widely between sources. The results will help researchers predict which coal ash is most environmentally dangerous.
  • 6-06-2023   Robot 'chef' learns to recreate recipes from watching food videos Researchers have trained a robotic 'chef' to watch and learn from cooking videos, and recreate the dish itself.
  • 6-06-2023   Researchers demonstrate secure information transfer using spatial correlations in quantum entangled beams of light Researchers have demonstrated the principle of using spatial correlations in quantum entangled beams of light to encode information and enable its secure transmission.
  • 6-06-2023   Webb Space Telescope detects universe's most distant complex organic molecules Researchers have detected complex organic molecules in a galaxy more than 12 billion light-years away from Earth - the most distant galaxy in which these molecules are now known to exist. Thanks to the capabilities of the recently launched James Webb Space Telescope and careful analyses from the research team, a new study lends critical insight into the complex chemical interactions that occur in the first galaxies in the early universe.
  • 6-06-2023   NASA's Webb Space Telescope peers behind bars A delicate tracery of dust and bright star clusters threads across this image from the James Webb Space Telescope. The bright tendrils of gas and stars belong to the barred spiral galaxy NGC 5068, whose bright central bar is visible in the upper left of this image - a composite from two of Webb's instruments.
  • 6-06-2023   Dying stars' cocoons could be new source of gravitational waves Although astrophysicists theoretically should be able to detect gravitational waves from a single, non-binary source, they have yet to uncover these elusive signals. Now researchers suggest looking at a new, unexpected and entirely unexplored place: The turbulent, energetic cocoons of debris that surround dying massive stars.
  • 6-06-2023   Early universe crackled with bursts of star formation, Webb shows Among the most fundamental questions in astronomy is: How did the first stars and galaxies form? NASA's James Webb Space Telescope is already providing new insights into this question. One of the largest programs in Webb's first year of science is the JWST Advanced Deep Extragalactic Survey, or JADES, which will devote about 32 days of telescope time to uncover and characterize faint, distant galaxies. While the data is still coming in, JADES already has discovered hundreds of galaxies that existed when the universe was less than 600 million years old. The team also has identified galaxies sparkling with a multitude of young, hot stars.
  • 2-06-2023   Buckle up! A new class of materials is here Would you rather run into a brick wall or into a mattress? For most people, the choice is not difficult. A brick wall is stiff and does not absorb shocks or vibrations well; a mattress is soft and is a good shock absorber. Sometimes, in designing materials, both of these properties are needed. Materials should be good at absorbing vibrations, but should be stiff enough to not collapse under pressure. A team of researchers from the UvA Institute of Physics has now found a way to design materials that manage to do both these things.
  • 2-06-2023   House of moveable wooden walls unveiled, promising a cheaper, greener alternative to 'knocking through'. Architects have designed a prototype home constructed with flexible wooden partition walls which can be shifted to meet the changing needs of residents. The invention aims to reduce waste and carbon while also improving living conditions for those who cannot afford expensive refurbishments.
