More than 30 reports and news from the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, University "Dubna" resident companies special economic zone "Dubna" and enterprise scientific-industrial complex made of 26 February 2013 in the framework of the project "Nano-24."

The "Nano 24" organized by the Fund for Infrastructure and Educational Programs RUSNANO and the magazine "Russian Reporter". About two hundred young journalists describe what is happening in enterprises, research institutes, and looked at the laboratory, educational institutions and even private production, as well as other scientific areas related to nanotechnology. In the on-line reporting and news published on the joint mediapoligone with Expert.ru. These reports covered all three main areas of focus within the project "Nano-24" — science, education and technology. The project's website — a lot of notes, news and minireportazhey of development, innovation and production.

Coordinator of the project "Nano-24" made in Dubna young journalist Maria Antonova (This year she finishes the Russian State Social University), and correspondents — student volunteers. During the day they were news reports and chronicles of the University "Dubna" — from the Department of nanotechnology and new materials, as well as from the Center for Education Academician AN Sisakyan from JINR laboratories, the Centre for High Technology Research Institute of Applied Acoustics, nanotechnology center "Dubna", talked about the development and activity of the resident of a special economic zone "Dubna" — "Mintz" STRC "Nanotech-Dubna", "InterGraphics" " DViN "," ERA ", etc.

  • "Smart glass": The windows are so smart, that will help to get around the law

    Olga Ageev, Elena Cherenkov Anastasia Mitkevich

    At the entrance of the Center of High Technologies Applied Acoustics Research Institute (NIIPA) we are greeted by a strict "Good morning!". Inside the center — the transparent glass colors of the Russian flag. Under the ceiling in the lab tubes powerful ventilation system — a kind of futurism. Head of the Department of Physics and Chemical Engineering Doctor of Sciences Dmitry Krylski toggle switch on the installation of smart electrochromic glass. These glasses are capable of changing light transmission. Under the influence of an electric current starts a chemical reaction.

    — Smart glass can reduce energy consumption for air conditioning in the heat and for heating in cold weather, — says Dmitry. — We were busy for a long time, first here with such tiny windows — Dmitry shows laboratory samples on the table. — You understand that high technology in a garage on the knee will not. Japanese proverb says any long journey begins with the first step.

    Meanwhile, the scientist behind the glass start to get dark blue.

    — Applications smart glass is not limited. Imagine using them will get around the ban on tinted vehicles. Imagine indoor lighting can be changed as you want, — Dmitry gladly lists that can be used electrochromic glass.

  • hydrophobic coatings and technology of growing gems Institute of Applied Acoustics: Wisdom lotus for bricks

    Eugene Vavilov

    Laboratory Institute of Applied Acoustics. Senior researcher Roman Novikov shows us a hydrophobic coating of silica (glass).

    — In this laboratory, we investigate the effect of lotus flower that grows in almost dumps, but always remains clear — the dirt, the water simply roll off the leaf surface. He has a particular structure that could be seen only under the electron microscope — there are bars, covered with wax. Water molecules interact better with each other than with the slipping surface and therefore. This coating is called superhydrophobic. This is a complex and fragile nanostructure. You can break it simply holding your finger over the surface. The novel shows how the water rolls off the bricks, a piece of wood and pieces of fabric covered with a hydrophobic solution. It differs from the superhydrophobic structure — a thin film nano, preventing contact surfaces and water. These coatings are used for the treatment of wooden and brick structures, tissues and other materials so that they last longer. Basically, the skin is also applied coating, it is possible. But not on a live human!

  • Quantum dots NIIPA and STRC "Nanotech-Dubna": Quantum dots on the map Dubna

    The design company "STRC" Nanotech-Dubna "produces nanoscale semiconductor crystals — colloidal quantum dots. This particle size of a few nanometers, which are synthesized in a chemical reactor.

    It looks like multi-colored solutions. They are a good substitute for conventional phosphors (substances that converts the absorbed energy into light radiation) — based on them has created the first prototypes of displays and LED lamps. In the latter "dot technology" is used for obtaining a white color.

    It is also possible their application in medicine — for the diagnosis and treatment of various diseases, including cancer.

  • nuclear medicine and neutron research at JINR: Therapeutic nuclear reactions

    Elena Rybin

    At the entrance to the Laboratory of Nuclear Problems. VP Dzhelepov at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research are cozy slippers and a box with shoe covers. In the laboratory, where they work with microscopes and fine detail, observe cleanliness.

    — You've heard of positron emission tomography? — Asks Nikolai Anfimov, start of the Laboratory, opening the first slide in the presentation.

    Nicholas tells of nuclear medicine, where the treatment and diagnosis of diseases using nuclear reaction. Positron emission tomography provides a picture of a cancerous tumor. For this body the isotope fluorine — fluoro-18. It emits a positron (an electron anichastitsa) that the annihilation emits two gamma-ray — particles of registration which can be diagnosed malignancy (from 1 cm), and to distinguish malignant from benign tumors.

    — This is a very expensive system, about $ 20 million — says Nicholas. It consists of several parts: the first — is the accelerator for isotope production, the second — a chemical laboratory where they inject the man, and the third — the PET scanner, which placed man for the diagnosis (it is a ring of detectors), and the fourth — the creation of the image on the right computer. Our laboratory is engaged in the production of JINR matrices for fotodektorov, it's about a third of the total PET scanner. PET scanner itself costs about 1.5-2 million. Across Russia only 3 center, fully engaged in positron emission tomography.

    on track membranes on the SPC "Alpha" Company "Trackpore Technology": Membrane filter the blood film

    Eugene Vavilov

    At elective students talk about the production and use of membrane films.

    At the Center of Education Academician AN Sisakyan University of Nature, Society and Man "Dubna" is an optional task. Michael Samoylovich host, Vice President for Research, shows students of nanotechnology membrane film.

    — Such films are used in medicine for blood purification. Their factory produces Dubna "Alpha". Small blood filtration rate — total 100 ml minutu.Vse to patient discomfort experienced during the procedure. It will soon be ready to film with holes 90 nanometers, which will allow more time to filter and blood components — Michael Samoylovich.

  • project on a single-energy transmission and data based on the ideas of Nikola Tesla from the University "Dubna": In Dubna found evidence of the revolutionary ideas of N. Tesla

    Mitkevich Anastasia, Olga Ageev, Elena Cherenkov

    A discussion of the "single-wire power transmission and data" in the "nanotechnology centers" Dubna ". Andrew Moryshev, technical director, and Victor Nikitin, an investment analyst, weighed all the pros and cons of the future startup.

    — We have examined the summary and are now analyzing the project. The whole idea is very interesting: previously it was necessary plurality of wires for power transmission, Internet, now — just one.

    The basis of a single-wire power transmission Tesla's ideas are put forward by scientists over 100 years ago

    Cooperation will be held from MUPOCH "Dubna". University for 2 years engaged in this development. The purpose of this technological project: "Develop intelligent systems to provide electricity to small villages. This will allow homes, combined into a single network, it is advantageous to distribute power among themselves. "

  • and a host of others.

The main objective of the project "Nano-24" — show the real life and work of enterprises, universities and other organizations associated with advanced technologies,- Successfully achieved. His first results of the organizers brought on his page on Facebook:

"Good-bye. That ended our project "24 hours in search of nano". Frankly, we do not really understand what happens. But we, the organizers of the project, would love to tell you about life, which is in contrast to the "scandals, intrigues, investigation" does not come out on the front pages of newspapers. And yet, it determines our future.

What have we learned? First, there is life in Russia. Hundreds of thousands of people are doing useful things. Secondly, to live interesting. Third, there is the future.

Thanks to all who read our messages.

And, of course, most importantly thank you to those who worked on the project. More than 200 students and young journalists told us to you about what is happening in Russia — from Vladivostok to Kaliningrad. Guys, you all — well done. We all turned out. "
