Attraction of the leading scientists to Russian institutions of higher learning, research organizations of the governmental academies of sciences, and governmental research centers of the Russian Federation

“Intellectual Nanomaterials” International Research Center

About the Laboratory

This laboratory was established as part of a scientific research project supported with a monetary grant awarded by the Government of the Russian Federation under a grant competition designed to provide governmental support to scientific research projects implemented under the supervision of the world's leading scientists at Russian institutions of higher learning (Resolution of the RF Government No.220 of April 9, 2010).

Grant Agreement No.:

Name of the institution of higher learning:
Southern Federal University

Fields of scientific research:

Project goal:

Computer-assisted design, chemical synthesis and spectral nanodiagnostics of "smart" nanostructured porous materials.

Anticipated results of the project:

The laboratory staff will perform their research activities based on multiscale computer-assisted modeling using supercomputer technologies, including "cloud" computing and graphic accelerator technologies. They will also use advanced chemical synthesis methods and modern spectral methods of nanodiagnostics, including that performed in the in situ mode (i.e. diagnostics of processes performed directly in the course of reactions) using international Mega-Science class installations – Russian and international sources of synchrotronic emission.
