  • A new nanopaticles based technology to manufacture environmentally safe filtering materials

    11 dec 2023
    Scientists from Tomsk State University, Tomsk Polytechnic University and Tomsk Scientific Center of Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences published a monograph “Materials with polyfunctional properties based on nanoparticles modified fibers” which presents an advanced technology for manufacturing nanofilters to purify liquid and gas media.
  • The TSC SB RAS researchers introduced carbide-containing materials produced using plastic waste

    27 nov 2023

    The researchers of the Tomsk Scientific Center produced valuable titanium carbides using the highly exothermic reaction between PET bottles and Ti powder as well as a hydrogen-containing gaseous by-product which can be used as fuel for heat and power units. These carbides are similar in their properties to the reference ones. The research is published in Green Chemical Engineering.

  • 19-03-2024   Backyard insect inspires invisibility devices, next gen tech Leafhoppers, a common backyard insect, secrete and coat themselves in tiny mysterious particles that could provide both the inspiration and the instructions for next-generation technology, according to a new study. In a first, the team precisely replicated the complex geometry of these particles, called brochosomes, and elucidated a better understanding of how they absorb both visible and ultraviolet light.
  • 19-03-2024   Two artificial intelligences talk to each other Performing a new task based solely on verbal or written instructions, and then describing it to others so that they can reproduce it, is a cornerstone of human communication that still resists artificial intelligence (AI). A team has succeeded in modelling an artificial neural network capable of this cognitive prowess. After learning and performing a series of basic tasks, this AI was able to provide a linguistic description of them to a 'sister' AI, which in turn performed them.
  • 19-03-2024   Holographic message encoded in simple plastic Important data can be stored and concealed quite easily in ordinary plastic using 3D printers and terahertz radiation, scientists show. Holography can be done quite easily: A 3D printer can be used to produce a panel from normal plastic in which a QR code can be stored, for example. The message is read using terahertz rays - electromagnetic radiation that is invisible to the human eye.
  • 19-03-2024   Self-heating concrete is one step closer to putting snow shovels and salt out of business Researchers recently reported on the science behind its special concrete, that can warm itself up when it snows, or as temperatures approach freezing.
  • 19-03-2024   Virtual reality better than video for evoking fear, spurring climate action Depicting worst-case climate scenarios like expanding deserts and dying coral reefs may better motivate people to support environmental policies when delivered via virtual reality, according to a research team that studied how VR and message framing affect the impact of environmental advocacy communications. The study findings may help advocacy groups decide how best to frame and deliver their messages.
  • 19-03-2024   Engineers measure pH in cell condensates In a first for the condensate field, researchers have figured out how nucleolar sub-structures are assembled. This organization gives rise to unique pH profiles within nucleoli, which they measured and compared with the pH of nearby non-nucleolar condensates including nuclear speckles and Cajal bodies.
  • 19-03-2024   Breakthrough in melting point prediction: Over 100-year-old physics problem solved Scientists propose a groundbreaking theory for predicting melting points. The theory offers a universal description of melting lines across various material types. This discovery has significant implications for materials science and related fields.
  • 16-03-2024   Speaking without vocal cords, thanks to a new AI-assisted wearable device Bioengineers have invented a thin, flexible device that adheres to the neck and translates the muscle movements of the larynx into audible speech. The device is trained through machine learning to recognize which muscle movements correspond to which words. The self-powered technology could serve as a non-invasive tool for people who have lost the ability to speak due to vocal cord problems.
  • 16-03-2024   Breakthrough in ultraviolet spectroscopy Physicists achieve major leap in precision and accuracy at extremely low light levels.
  • 16-03-2024   Revolutionary method developed for mass-producing polymer solid electrolytes Scientists have unveiled a groundbreaking technique for mass-producing polymer solid electrolytes, crucial components in batteries.
  • 16-03-2024   New research suggests that our universe has no dark matter A new study challenges the current model of the universe by showing that, in fact, it has no room for dark matter.
  • 16-03-2024   Protein fragments ID two new 'extremophile' microbes--and may help find alien life Perfectly adapted microorganisms live in extreme environments from deep-sea trenches to mountaintops. Learning more about how these extremophiles survive in hostile conditions could inform scientists about life on Earth and potential life on other planets.
