Researchers and postgraduate students from the MIPT Physics and Chemistry of Nanostructures Section recently published results from their studies on the adsorption of hydrogen by graphene nanoribbons. This process is believed to be the foundation of future quantum dot synthesis and the production of graphene-based transistors, a long-awaited breakthrough in nanoelectronics.
Researchers from the Laboratory of Nanooptics and Plasmonics, MIPT have devised a novel type of graphene oxide based biosensor that could potentially significantly speed up the process of drug development.
An international team of physicists working with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider has recently presented data indicating the probable existence of a new particle. Among the scientists reporting on the new discovery is the head of the Section of High Energy Physics at MIPT, Alexander Zaitsev.
Two young researchers working at the MIPT Laboratory of Nanooptics and Plasmonics, Dmitry Fedyanin and Yury Stebunov, have developed an ultracompact highly sensitive nanomechanical sensor for analyzing the chemical composition of substances and detecting biological objects, such as viral disease markers, which appear when the immune system responds to incurable or hard-to-cure diseases, including HIV, hepatitis, herpes, and many others. The sensor will enable doctors to identify tumor markers, whose presence in the body signals the emergence and growth of cancerous tumors.
