Novosibirsk State University has strengthened its position, jumping to 433 place in the overall ranking of world universities by the media company U.S. News and World Report.
Ten representatives from French and Siberian universities took part in an annual NSU conference. The conference program included a presentation of the Trianon Dialogue, a round table, “Academic Mobility: How to Overcome Obstacles”, a presentation of the program “Exporting Education”, a round table, “University Networks, Why?” , and a visit to the research laboratories in Akademgorodok and Academpark.
Scientists at the NSU Physics Department Laboratory for Structures and Functional Properties of Molecular Systems and the G. K. Boreskov Institute of Catalysis SB RAS conducted a detailed structural study of the proton-exchange membrane, the main element in a fuel cell, and identified how to improve its conductivity.
In 2019, for the first time NSU will become the site of what is expected to be the largest informatics event in the country, “Computer Science Summer in Russia” (CSSR).
The book is based on the experience of the team of authors in the framework of broad international cooperation promoted by the European Commission FP6 and FP7 programs and the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation.
Elsevier, the largest scientific publishing house, established an award for the most quoted and published scientists in Europe, Asia, Latin America, and Russia. The winners are identified using the Scopus scientific publication database.
Scientists at the NSU Physics Department Laboratory for Functional Materials created mono domain crystals of Potassium Titanyl Arsenate KTiOAsO4 (KTA). This was the first time scientists in Russia were able to achieve this. These nonlinear optical crystals are used to convert laser radiation in the visible mid infrared range in optical parametric oscillators (ODO). The ferroelectric properties and high homogeneity of the crystals made it possible to use them as the basis to create periodic structures that significantly increase the conversion efficiency of laser radiation in the spectral range up to 5 micrometers.
