Joint research efforts of a team of scientists at Lobachevsky University of Nizhny Novgorod (UNN) comprising chemists, physicists and engineers are currently focused on solving the problems of handling plutonium and minor actinides (MA) accumulated over many years. To this end, they are studying composite ceramics-ceramics (Cer-Cer) and ceramics-metal (CerMet) materials on the basis of mineral-like compounds (in particular, garnet minerals).Путь: /en/node/3171 Источник: Lobachevsky University Press Office
A team of researchers form Russia discovered that an increase in the concentration of several substances in oral fluid can serve as the indication of caries development. Using this data they found a way to prevent the disease in its early stages. The study was supported by a grant from the Russian Science Foundation (RSF). The results of the study were published in the EPMA Journal.Путь: /en/node/3167 Источник: News Medical

In almost any field of human activity, one has to choose optimal options from a great variety of possible alternatives. When designing new devices, products and systems, researchers and engineers always strive to ensure that the systems created by them have the best characteristics and are economically viable. Thus, for example, a new car being developed must be fast, consume a minimum amount of fuel, be reliable and, in addition, it should not be too expensive.Путь: /en/node/3120 Источник: Lobachevsky State University Press Office
“The other day, the Supervisory Board of the Russian Science Foundation (RSF) approved the RSF’s report for the year 2017, and we decided to share our results with the public,” Alexander Khlunov, the Foundation’s Director General, said at the TASS news conference.
