Russian Magnetic Nanoelectronics Factory Crocus Nano Electronics is a joint venture of Rusnano and French American company Crocus Technology. The company has been established for the industrial production of magnetoresistive memory chips based on Magnetic Logic Unit (MLU) architecture. Crocus Nano Electronics was localized in Technopolis Moscow and its first technological equipment was launched by the end of 2013
The priority of NTSR is the financing of high-tech projects In Kazan passed joint meeting of board
of the Nanotechnological Society of Russia (NTSR) and Tatarstan office of NTSR on a theme "The organization of financing of hi-tech projects: international and Russian experience"
Classification of inventions in the field of high technologies The current official International patent
classification (IPC) to a large extent has lost its practical value. In this regard, it is appropriate to develop an alternative classification oriented
to the practical needs of inventors. For example,
it is interesting to consider classification
of devices (they are objects of bulk of inventions), which will allow to find out some regularities
of their patenting.
Multifunctional fluorine-containing nanofilms: current problems The active fluorine-containing lubricating compositions form multifunctional protective nanolayers, which give a firm surface anti-friction, anti-oxidant, anti-corrosion, waterproof, antibacterial and antiadhesive properties. Practical use of such compositions demands the solution of problems of activation and management of hemosorbtion parameters with a processed surface.
Physicochemical and catalytic properties of nano-nickel in the process of conversion of isopropyl alcohol to acetone The study of the properties of industrial
nickel-kieselguhr catalyst in the conversion
of isopropyl alcohol in acetone showed
that the process is accompanied by the loosening of initial metal structure and the formation of nanoclusters of nickel. Catalytic properties of the nickel-kieselguhr catalyst are connected with change of morphology, phase, electronic, magnetic state and the nature of surface-active nickel clusters like homogeneous spinel.
Non-profit organizations of nanoindustry Non-profit organizations are created in different sectors of the economy to meet the challenges of market regulation, product promotion, attraction of investments, development of standards, lobbying in government. How effective are non-profit organizations working in the nanotechnology industry, in particular Nanotechnology Society of Russia (NSR) and the the Interbranch Association of Nanoindustry (IAN)? This question is answered by our experts.
