Human stem cell defenses activated by irradiation, study finds

Researchers from several Russian institutes, including MIPT, have found out how prolonged exposure to ionizing radiation affects human stem cells. They discovered that it causes a cell cycle delay, which leads to faster repairs ...

Researchers create magnetic RAM

MIPT researchers teamed up with collaborators for a successful demonstration of magnetoelectric random access memory (MELRAM). A transition to magnetoelectric memory could enable substantial energy savings, as well as the ...

Astrophysicists explain the mysterious behavior of cosmic rays

A team of scientists from Russia and China has developed a model explaining the nature of high-energy cosmic rays (CRs) in our galaxy. These CRs have energies exceeding those produced by supernova explosions by one or two ...

Scientists determine algae biofuel composition

Scientists have used high-resolution mass spectrometry to determine the composition of a biofuel obtained from the microalgae Spirulina platensis. The researchers studied two biofuel fractions obtained using a special algal ...

Scientists announce the quest for high-index materials

An antenna is a device capable of effectively transmitting, picking up, and redirecting electromagnetic radiation. Typically, antennas are macroscopic devices operating in the radio and microwave range. However, there are ...

Physicists study magnetic impurities in topological insulators

A group of physicists from MIPT and the Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences are now one step closer to finding applications for topological insulators—materials with remarkable electrical ...

Researchers find out how bromine fits into Venusian chemistry

Bromine species, and hydrogen bromide (HBr) in particular, could play an important part in the photochemistry of the lower atmosphere of Venus. This conclusion was made by researchers from MIPT and the Space Research Institute ...

Nonvolatile memory as fast as RAM with the capacity of flash

Researchers from MIPT's Center of Shared Research Facilities have found a way to control oxygen concentration in tantalum oxide films produced by atomic layer deposition. These thin films could be the basis for creating new ...
