MARKETS, MARKETING AND NANOTECHNOLOGICAL OUTPUT
Marketing is often perceived as a market study – the study, which is certainly intended to ensure the highest possible volumes of goods sales. You either try to position your commodity as an “isolated” one at the existing market or you try to capture a new market niche. However, this marketing perception is not quite accurate. In fact, there is probably no precise definition everybody would agree to – except for the most common and…Continue

General civilisation crisis connected to the fact that humanity entered the post-industrial development stage, and to the emergence of ‘young’ industry giant such as India and China in particular, has shifted to a new phase. Apparently finite and exhaustible nature of the civilisation resources has now become an outlook for the nearest future. We currently face the question whether it is possible for the mankind to overcome the crisis and ultimately to survive.
Scientists have been…Continue

Modern biotechnologies increasingly require devices capable of moving around single biomolecules, cells and other micro-objects. The first appliance of the kind, laser optical forceps, was developed by the group led by Arthur Ashkin, an American physicist, back in 1986; more new technical solutions emerge each year. A research group based at Saratov State Technical…Continue

“A university without a plant will educate unneeded specialists. Whereas a plant without a university will be unable to develop,” said Igor Yaminsky, director general of Advanced Technology Centre scientific production company in an interview for STRF.ru. And he acted up to his words. Our reporters recently visited…Continue

Russia has got money and interesting ideas for innovations, it has opened up possibilities for practicing abroad. What else is needed to increase the number of innovation success stories? – this topic was discussed at the workshop that took place recently in the framework of Nano and Giga-Forum in the main building of Moscow State University.
It seems that debates about the most favorable climate for commercialization of Russian…Continue
The state contract “Creation of a monitoring system for nanotechnology and nanomaterial development and research” had as its main objectives increasing the effectiveness of managerial decisions concerning the evolution of nano-industry directions and establishing new nanotechnologies and nanomaterials…Continue

Nanopainters, nanolandscapes and nanosculptures… all these terms are not an obvious attempt to follow the fashion, they are taken from vocabulary of follows of a new artistic trend – NanoArt. Its creator - Cris Orfescu – has shared with the “Rossiiskie nanotechnologii” his methodology and philosophy. There is no need for brushes or paints, or artistic design, but one can’t do without “his majesty” incident and a powerful microscope.…Continue
Microelectronics is in expectation of miracles. Discovery of the giant magnetoresistance phenomenon, thanks to which the HDD capacity has increased by a factor of a hundred at once, has inspired researchers for new exploits, specifically for search of an appropriate RAM replacement. If this task is solved, habitual equipment will change drastically, for example, a switched-on computer will start working from the “interrupted point” without waiting and loading. The future of microelectronics…Continue

Outer physical world exists in the form of electromagnetic field and matter. The field quanta and molecules of the matter influence the receptor layers of human sensor systems; and this influence transforms into electric signals which are transmitted to the central nervous system for processing. It is possible…Continue
Researchers at Moscow State University prepare for a breakthrough in nanophotonics
Researchers have come up to producing ultrahigh-speed optical devices where the information medium will not be the electron (as it is now) but a photon. In the future, this will enable to achieve teracycle computing frequency. That, in turn, will open up possibilities for brand new telecommunication and navigation systems,…Continue

A solar battery operation is based on the light getting on the photosensitive surface characterised with a “redundancy” of electrons, the latter start shifting into the next in-depth layer of the battery made of “electron-poor” materials. The electromotive force occurs which leads to the emergence of electric current. In fact the two layers interact as electrodes of a regular battery.
Search for materials fit to make solar batteries is of great interest for researchers. Materials…Continue
