Issue 9-10 of Nanotechnologies in Russia journal (2014) has been published

The issue contains the article of Zhigalina et al. in which Bimetallic structures–Pt nanoparticles distributed on the surface of a Pd catalyst on Vulcan XC_72 soot–have been investigated. Several series of bimetallic catalysts with various contents of platinum have been obtained by pulsed electrochemical deposition. Their structure is studied using analytical high resolution transmission electron microscopy with a correction of aberrations. The data allows us to present a…

Those “hidden” markets

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…

Convergence of sciences and technologies to create a new noosphere

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…

Russian researchers to create optical forceps for micro-objects

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…

Everyday work of a university-plant: supermachine installed

“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…

The nano-style art

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.…

Adventures of electronics

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…

Nano-structured biomaterials serve as a foundation for human systems of physical world perception

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…

A light-speed computer

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,…
