Way to Extend the Shelf Life of Products

Russian researchers have proposed a way to improve glass containers used by manufacturers of various food products, particularly vegetable oils. The method consists of applying transparent protective films of indium tin oxide (ITO) to the glass, which delay ultraviolet and infrared radiation, as well as electromagnetic fields. After conducting studies of sunflower oil in glass containers protected with oxide films and unprotected, the researchers proved that the product stored in an insulated container retains its useful properties and taste merits much longer.

Neural Networks to Predict the Level of Air Pollution

SibFU Researchers have developed a method for predicting the quantitative composition of harmful substances in the air using neural networks, taking into account several types of meteorological data comprehensively. The new approach was tested on geodata for the territory of Krasnoyarsk.

A New Class of Sensitive Optical Sensors

A research team of scientists from the Laboratory of Nonlinear Optics and Spectroscopy of Siberian Federal University and the Krasnoyarsk Research Centre of the SB RAS in collaboration with Dr Sylvia Romano working at the Institute of Applied Sciences and Intelligent Systems (Naples, Italy) have proposed a substantiation of the principles of operation of optical sensors based on bound states in a continuum (BSC). Their work is published in Optics Express, a highly rated international journal.

Everything Hinges on Personalities: Long Interview about the Present and Future of Siberian Federal University

On November 4, Siberian Federal University celebrated its birthday. Since 2006, the university has changed a lot, especially in recent years. Ruslan Baryshev, vice-rector for research of Siberian Federal University, told Newslab how the coronavirus affected it, how successfully the university managed to switch to online, what the university scientists have achieved at the international level, and what SibFU is doing for ordinary Krasnoyarsk residents.

Nanoparticles for Efficient Oil Production

Researchers from Siberian Federal University and Kutateladze Institute of Thermophysics have found out how nanoparticles affect the efficiency of oil extraction. Adding them to water, which displaces oil from the formation, improves the separation of oil droplets from rock and their washing out to the surface. The work was published in the Journal of Molecular Liquids.
