LNBE won the competition of joint projects with research institutions and universities of European Community countries

A project proposal from LNBE entitled Development of an Experimental Method for High-Resolution Multiparametric Correlation Analysis of Optical and Morphological Properties in Bulk Nanomaterials has won the competition "Researches in Priority Fields in Collaboration with Research Institutions and Universities of EC Countries in the Framework of Bilateral and Multilateral Cooperation with EC Countries" organized by the RF Ministry of Education and Science. A total of 26 out of 163 projects proposed will receive federal funding.

The project will be a continuation of the development of new methods and instruments in the context of an innovative approach to the analysis of the characteristics of nanomaterials that is underway in the Biophysics Group of LNBE. The goal of the present project is to design an integrated instrument for analyzing 3D morphology and the spatial distribution of physico-chemical parameters of a material in a single area of its sample at a nanometer resolution by combining scanning probe microscopic and near-field optical microscopic measurements.

Implementation of this technology will allow substantial improvement of the usability of new nanostructured materials. This is ensured by unique information on the structural characteristics of the materials provided by the new method, which will lead to a substantial increase in the quality of the materials developed. Since "smart" nanostructured materials are increasingly widely used in modern industrial technologies, this project has important practical implications.

Research and developments of LNBE in this field have been publicized by RIA Novosti. preliminary results have been reported in the high-rating journal ACS Nano.
