Siberian chemists have improved hydrogen sensors

A group of scientists from the Siberian Federal University (SFU, Krasnoyarsk, Russia) and the Nikolaev Institute of Inorganic Chemistry (NIIC, Novosibirsk, Russia) combined the useful properties of metal phthalocyanines and palladium membranes in order to create active layers in hydrogen detectors. This operation significantly increases the sensitivity of the sensors. The study is reported in the journals Dyes and Pigments and International Journal of Hydrogen Energy.

Russian Scientists Suggested a New Technology for Creating Magnet Micro-Structures

A team of scientists from Krasnoyarsk Scientific Center (Siberian Department of Russian Academy of Sciences) and Siberian Federal University synthesized thin crystal ferromagnetic films and developed a technology for their shaping. Processed films can be used in electronic and spintronic chips. The results of the study were published in Thin Solid Films journal.

The SibFU researches created a diamond based device

The researchers of SibFU and Technological Institute for Superhard and Novel Carbon Materials created acoustoelectric device — piezoelectric laminated structure based on diamond synthetic monocrystal and aluminum nitride wrap with operating frequency range from 1 to 20 GHz.

A Russian Physicist Described the Structure and Properties of a Prospective Luminescent Substance

A physicist from Siberian Federal University (SibFU) and Kirensky Institute of Physics Federal Research Center KSC SB RAS (IF) described the structure and properties of a new substance obtained by his Chinese colleagues. These are layered crystals of rare earth metal hydroxides Ln2(OH)4SO4 (Ln=Eu–Lu, Y) that may acts as eco-friendly sources of phosphors (substances that transform different energies into emission of light) for panels, screens, and other electronic devices.
