Russian Physicists’ Research Might Lead to a New Generation of Microprocessors

Press release from: Ural Federal University

Anatoly Zatsepin, head of the laboratory named "Photonics and VUV Spectroscopy" of the Department of Physical Methods and Instruments of Control (Institute of Physics and Technology, Ural Federal University, Ekaterinburg, Russia) received a special certificate for his public presentation of the research at a congress in Valencia, Spain. The scientist's report was devoted to fundamental studies of oxides of rare-earth elements with reduced dimensionality. The objects of research raise interest of the scientific society as they can be used as new materials with predetermined properties for devices converting UV and IR radiation. In the long run, the research may lead to creation of a new generation of microprocessors which are dozens of times faster and smaller than the existing ones.

The congress, which was organized by the International Scientific Federation, brought together more than 300 participants from Spain, France, Italy, the USA, Great Britain, Japan, India and other countries.

"The audience received my report with great interest and were really impressed by some of the results we had achieved," said Anatoly Zatsepin. “In the course of studies of gadolinium oxide nanoparticles, we discovered the so-called ‘giant softening effect of optical phonons’. We managed to create conditions under which the energy of UV and IR radiation absorbed by these nanoparticles can be converted into visible light with maximum efficiency. At the same time, the energy losses, which inevitably exist, turned out to be an order of magnitude lower than they should be in theory."

According to Anatoly Zatsepin, the effect has been repeatedly checked and confirmed. Such result allows to achieve an increase in efficiency of long-range space communication systems, complex integrated chips, in the creation of new generation microminiature nanolaser, which will be in demand in both medical and biological studies and in practical medicine. At the moment, scientists of the UrFU Institute of Physics and Technology are developing a theoretical model which could adequately describe the results.

The project for the study of rare earth oxides with reduced dimensionality has already received support from the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation. It is planned that the state will be supporting the project for three years. The project involves young employees, postgraduates and students of several departments of the UrFU Institute of Physics and Technology.

"I would like to underline that these achievements were the result of a young researchers team’s work. A post-graduate student of the department, Yulia Kuznetsova, made a significant contribution to the experiments, data processing and preparation of materials. Her diploma project gave impetus for the research; we started developing this field and received support from the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation, established contacts with leading Russian and foreign researchers," said Anatoly Zatsepin.

Ural Federal University (UrFU) is one of the largest higher educational institutions in Russia, which brings together fundamental education and innovative approach towards the challenges of modern times.

Currently, the university is home to 32,000 students from 76 countries of the world and more than 4,000 faculty members, including the top-notch global experts in the spheres of natural sciences, engineering and social sciences. Our institutes offer about 400 Bachelor, Master and Doctoral Programs in natural sciences, engineering, social sciences, humanities, economics and management taught in Russian and English. The number of UrFU alumni exceeds 360,000 people.

Breakthrough studies are pursued in 72 research excellence centers. The university is open to international collaboration having almost 400 partners all over the globe and being an active participant of such initiatives as BRICS Network University, SCO Network University, CIS University.

A team of scientists from the Institute of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, Ural Federal University, Russia, including Piotr Galenko (head of the project), Ilya Starodumov, Irina Nizovtseva, Dmitry Aleksandrov, Aleksey Malygin and others is conducting a multiscale mathematical modelling of the Arctic ice evolution and determining its influence on the climate change. In 2016, the mathematicians received a grant from the Russian Science Foundation for fundamental research. The idea of
Young Russian Researcher Creates Unique Biomechanical Hand
Fyodor Kotorov, a young researcher at Ural Federal University, Ekaterinburg, Russia, developed a prototype of biomechanical fingers capable of lifting heavy items. The prototype has already passed primary tests with a canister of water. “The idea of designing a mechanical hand came to me when I was watching a series of videos on biomedical engineering achievements, both Russian and international”, said Fyodor in his interview for Oblastnaya Gazeta. “When
Glycine crystals can replace piezoelectric ceramics in biology and medicine
Crystals of glycine under a deformation can produce an electric charge considerably larger than conventional ceramics or a polymer. The scientists of Ural Federal University in collaboration with researchers from Limerick University (Ireland) and University of Aveiro (Portugal) measured piezoelectric coefficients in beta-glycine crystals for the first time and found that their values are comparable with the coefficients in barium titanate or lead zirconate titanate used in the manufacture of

Scientists from Ural Federal University and Karaganda State Technical University simulated the work of an electric-hydrodynamic heater (EHDH) and proposed a method for its improvement. The resulting installation, which dimensions range from 0.8×1×1 m to 1.5×2×2.5 m, can be used in autonomous heating, hot water and air conditioning systems. The installation is environmentally friendly and easy to maintain; it allows consumers to set their own mode of operation. The results
