Russian researchers have studied elastic properties of graphene

As of today, graphene, the thinnest one-atom-thick layer of carbon, is one of the most amazing materials. Measurements made in 2008 by researchers at Columbia University, proved that graphene was also the strongest and most elastic material among all known ones. However, the obtained data related to “ideal” graphene, which contains very few admixtures, its crystal structure being homogeneous. Apparently, defects in its structure should…

Russian researchers forecast nanoparticles dimensions

Enormous free surface area, unique magnetic and optical properties of nanoparticles provide great opportunities for their application. One of the easiest and most efficient methods for getting nanoparticles is mechanical milling of larger-particle powders. Solving specific process tasks often requires nanoparticles of fixed composition and dimensions, but the existing models of obtaining them are rather experimental data integration and can hardly help in selecting powder processing…

How to get Russian science moving

The first Russian research centre was established based on the “Kurchatov Institute” National Research Centre. It also includes the B. P. Konstantinov Petersburg Nuclear Physics Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences (Gatchina); the Institute for High Energy Physics (Protvono); and the Institute for Theoretical and Experimental Physics (Moscow). Today, this structure embraces about 10.000 people. Mikhail Kovalchuk, director of the newly-established entity, spoke on the opportunities open for…

Sandwich microchip: What is covered within

Imagine a small notebook about ten pages thick. Each page is filled with some symbols. Is it possible to read the text in each page without actually opening the notebook? Yes, it is, says Eduard Rau, leading scientific associate at the joint Microscopy and Electronic Microtomography laboratory of the Physics Department, Moscow State University. Professor Rau led the development of an original method of noncontact nondestructive sample test. But in this case, however, the researchers…

Russian researchers to study the silicon particles effect on cells

Nanostructured silicon surfaces and silicon nanoparticles slow down the division of stem and cancer cells, and the combination of nanoparticles and ultrasound kill the cells. The research has been conducted at the Physics department of Moscow State University, the Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Biophysics, Russian Academy of Sciences, the I.M. Sechenov First Moscow State…

The structure of growing nanocrystals is possible to manage

Vertical nanocrystal whiskers or nanowiskers are one-dimensional crystals that look like rods or threads several nanometers in diameter. The rods are often cultivated using the elements of the third and fifth groups of the periodic table. The most common nanocrystals of the third and firth groups are gallium arsenide and indium phosphide. These semiconducting materials present competition to silicon in the electronics field as diodes and transistors built using them are faster in operation.…

Russian researchers suggest precipitating nickel on carbonic nanotubes

Nickel nanoparticles are used as a catalyst to produce various substances — for example, synthetic hydrocarbons. Broad use of this inexpensive catalytic metal is limited by the fact that researchers have no effective method of generating nanoparticles of similar structure and of closely varied sizes.

Experts at the Nanotechnologies and Nanomaterials Research Centre at Tambov Derzhavin State University have…

Laser hyperthermia to fight against tumors

Laser waves focused on the tumor area can damage cancer cells and blood vessels feeding them. The process becomes more efficient if nanoparticles are preliminary introduced into the tumor. At the conference “Nanotechnologies in Oncology in 2010”, Russian oncologists explained how laser irradiation is absorbed by nanoparticles, what particular nanoparticles should be used and…

Nanostructures based on precious stones

Researchers at the Ioffe Technical Physical Institutehave developed a new method of synthesising composite materials from synthetic opal and vanadium oxides. Such materials have unusual optical properties. Previously, they were generated by depositing vanadium oxides (V2O5 and VO2) from a solution, but in their latest work the researchers demonstrated the greater effectiveness of…

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at

Dr. András Paszternák, founder of Nanopaprika
