Biological Engineering: 2 years have passed

Nargiza Hamzaeva and Santiago Palacious — have been living and studying here in Krasnoyarsk for the past 2 years. During this time they have experienced a lot: Russian winter, Winter Universiade 2019, summer internship in Baikal, world pandemic, online defense of their Master’s thesis and much more.

Russian technologists investigate the way quenching pressure affects the parameters of a copper superconductor

The scientists studied the way increasing pressure in a plasma-chemical reactor affects the physical and magnetic properties of copper oxide nanoparticles synthesized in it. The properties of particles formed at 0.0004 atm turned out to be similar to those of the bulk material obtained by the conventional technologies, while the nanoparticles synthesized at 0.002 atm exhibited unusual properties.

Scientists propose new semiconductors for the electronics of the future

Researchers of Siberian Federal University and their Ukrainian and Swedish partners have proposed a new class of nanostructures based on planar heterocyclic molecules of tetratio- and tetraseleno[8]circulenes. The structures have flexibly varying semiconductor properties and can be used to produce organic LEDs. The results are published in New Journal of Chemistry.

Natural and disturbed forests of Siberia: soil emission of CO2

Krasnoyarsk scientists have analyzed the seasonal dynamics of soil emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) for various types of ground cover in the subzone of the middle taiga of Central Siberia over five vegetation periods. It was found that in pine forests growing on sandy soils, the level of CO2 flow from soils during the summer period depends primarily on moistening conditions, and only then does it depend on the temperature and type of ecosystem.
