New Ural materials for future electronics, energy, medicine and whatnot

24 Nov '16
The Ural Federal University (UrFU), the top university in the Urals headquartered in Yekaterinburg, is developing what its researchers call “brand new” materials based on low dimensional carbon modifications to be used in computers, phones and energy and medical equipment of a near future. Such materials are expected to enable the development of electronic devices with a set of unique characteristics, the UrFU website announced.

The effort is primarily aimed at developing technology to produce carbon nanomaterials with given properties for a fairly new field of science which includes carbon, nano-, micro- and optoelectronics.

It is expected that the new development technology may be adopted at electronics makers within the next five-to-ten years. The developers hope this will help boost the capacity and operational speed of electronic devices “by several factors” while reducing their sizes considerably.

The scientists believe the new technology will revolutionize approach to making novel types of displays and sources of light, X-ray equipment, night vision instruments, high-efficiency thermoelectric converters, nuclear batteries, special medical instruments, etc. Using modern carbon materials is expected to dramatically enhance performance and slash the cost of devices substantially.
