  • How can corrosion of magnesium alloys be prevented?

    28 sep 2021

    Collaboration of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (SB RAS), including both Tomsk Scientific Center (TSC) and Institute of High Current Electronics (IHCE), with Milan Polytechnic University (Italy) continues. Scientists from two countries have proposed optimal methods for electron-beam processing of magnesium alloys, which enable to improve their corrosion resistance by several times. One of the results of this international cooperation is the ‘Surface properties modification alloys by low energy high current pulsed electron-beam’ paper in the ‘Surface and Coatings Technology’ journal (Q1 according to the Web of Science database).

  • 29-09-2021   Researchers identify mutations of Delta, Delta Plus variants Using bioinformatics tools and programming, researchers identified five specific mutations that are far more prevalent in Delta Plus infections compared to Delta infections, including one mutation, K417N, that is present in all Delta Plus infections but not present in nearly any Delta infections. The findings provide important clues to researchers about the structural changes to the virus recently and highlight the need to expand the toolbox in the fight against COVID-19.
  • 29-09-2021   Liquid metal coating creates effective antiviral, antimicrobial fabric Researchers used liquid gallium to create an antiviral and antimicrobial coating and tested it on a range of fabrics, including face masks. The coating adhered more strongly to fabric than some conventional metal coatings, and eradicated 99% of several common pathogens within five minutes.
  • 29-09-2021   AI may predict the next virus to jump from animals to humans A new study suggests that machine learning using viral genomes may predict the likelihood that any animal-infecting virus will infect humans, given biologically relevant exposure.
  • 28-09-2021   Unbreakable glass inspired by seashells Scientists develop stronger and tougher glass, inspired by the inner layer of mollusk shells. Instead of shattering upon impact, the new material has the resiliency of plastic and could be used to improve cell phone screens in the future, among other applications.
  • 28-09-2021   Tweaking alloy microchemistry for flawless metal 3D printing In the last few decades, metal 3D printing has spearheaded the efforts in creating custom parts of intricate shapes and high functionality. But as additive manufacturers have included more alloys for their 3D printing needs, so have the challenges in creating uniform, defect-free parts.
  • 28-09-2021   Will twisted superconducting flakes make better components for quantum computers? Researchers have found a way to make 'single-crystal flake' devices that are so thin and free of defects, they have the potential to outperform components used today in quantum computer circuits.
