Mordovia nanotech: from heat insulation to Ĺnanotweezersĺ
6 Jun '14
Mordoviaĺs Center for Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials in the mid-Volga area has been pushing a number of advanced projects in new materials, lighting engineering, and especially nanotech, regional portal Vestnik-RM reported.
Some of those projects can soon go global, experts believe. For example, scientists at a local team called ôNanopincerö have developed an extremely small pair of tweezers that can help grasp, hold and manipulate microscopic objects such as carbon nanotubes or even viruses.
In addition, Center-based projects include efforts to increase eco-friendliness and reduce combustibility of modern heat insulation materials and boost the quality of functionality of innovation LED-based sources of light.
