Ekaterina Levada and Alexander Omelyanchik visited the Biomedical Nanomaterials Laboratory leaded by Prof. Alexander Majouga. This group consists of chemists and biologists working in the field of synthesis and application of magnetic nanoparticles. In the frame of RSF-project, the first experiments with using microwires acting on biological cells with magnetic nanoparticles were performed.

23-27 October, 2017

Three LNMM-members visited the conference “Magnetic nanomaterials for biomedicine: synthesis, properties, application” in Zvenigorod near Moscow. They presented three reports – one oral and two posters. Alexander Omelyanchik took the 3rd place among oral presentations. Since the conference was highly specialized in the investigation of magnetic nanoparticles, we discovered a lot of new information and productively communicated with a colleague working on the same topic.

Ariel Lenarciak – PhD student from Gdansk University of Technology – visited our Laboratory of Novel magnetic materials in framework of Erasmus+ program in July-Summer 2017. He works in the field of magnetic glasses under supervision of Prof. R. Barczyński in Poland. In our Laboratory he tried to find new effects in his samples and investigated its magnet striction coefficient, magnetocaloric properties and thermal properties by differential scanning calorimetry.
Irina Baraban – PhD student from LNMM FunMagMa IKBFU – took part at the same program Erasmus+ and spent time in Gdansk University of Technology in Spring 2017. She worked in the group of Prof. R. Barczyński. Irina learned how to create magnetic glasses, investigate their electrical and structural properties and tried to find magnetostriction behavior in these samples with ferromagnetic inclusions.

Phase transitions, critical and nonlinear phenomena in condensed matter physics

In the period of September 6-9, the members of LNMM team visited the conference “Phase transitions, critical and nonlinear phenomena in condensed matter physics” in Institute of Physics Dagestan Scientific Center of Russian Academy of Science (Makhachkala). We presented four posters and one invited report. Financial support was partially from FunMagMa-project for Valeria Rodionova. Irina Baraban and Alexander Omelyanchik thank the Russian Science Foundation (project №17-12-01569). Dagestan is one of the most amazing regions of the Russian Federation with a unique culture and history, so this conference was interesting both from a scientific and social points of view. We are grateful to our colleagues for organizing high-level event.

Irina Baraban spent in Spain, in the Institute of Materials Science of Madrid in Prof. Vazquez’s group. During this internship Irina investigated partially covered microwires and their local properties via Kerr magnetometer and frequencies properties (FMR) via Network Analyzer. Fe-based partially covered microwires with different composition of the shell were synthesized and studied. As a result of these works a patent with title “Microactuator based on bimagnetic coated core/shell microwires with asymmetric external shell and the use of it” was applied (№EP17382418).

Joint workshops with the Chemical Department

Series of joint workshops with the participators from the Chemical Department of Institute of Chemistry & Byology and LNMM STP “Factory” was held from May till July 2016. Meetings included seminars and labtours. Two groups from IKBFU found the ways of possible collaborations. Our collaboration can lead to cooperative work – ranging from tuning magnetic properties of microwires to the preparation and study of nanoparticles – and, obviously, will be useful for all parties.

All researches will be held under the supervision of Gorshenkov Mikhail Vladimirovich, – PhD from The National University of Science and Technology, MISiS (Moscow, Russia).

Irina Baraban have got the grant support for project that is called “Manufacturing and investigation of multiferroic composite structures based on a piezoelectric polymer and magnetostrictive layers with different shape, size and composition”. The main task of the project is to fabricate a new multiferroic structures based on polymers with magnetic microwires and amorphous ribbons with high magnetostrictive constant and to investigate the magnetistrictive properties and ME-effect. This project will be held under the supervisoin of PhD Leonid Fetisov from Moscow Technological University using the unique equipment of the Scientific Educational Center MIREA (Moscow, Russia).

The project that was won by Sergey Shevyrtalov is called “Investigation of mechanical stress influence from the substrate and layer thickness effect on 1st and 2nd order phase transitions parameters in Ni-Mn-Ga thin films with Ga excess”. This work will be held with Dr. Dmitry Karpenkov as a scientific supervisor from MISiS (Moscow, Russia).

Alexander Omelyanchik under the supervision of PhD Alexander Inyushkin from NRC «Kurchatov Institute» (Moscow, Russia) have got the support for project “Investigation of the dependence of magnetic properties of the suspension based on iron oxide nanoparticles on the pH-level”.

Victor Belyaev have got the support from RFBR for a short term project called «Investigation of local magnetic characteristics and micromagnetic properties of magnetoplasmonic crystals» under the supervision of PhD Alexander Samardak from Far Eastern Federal University (Vladivostok, Russia). This project is dedicated to investigation of magneto-optical properties and domain structures using nanoMOKE, Kerr-microscope and MFM.

The intramural stage of the StartUp Tour 2016 was held in Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University in Kaliningrad on the 14th and 15th of April. The goal of the tour was finding innovative and promising solutions and development of competencies of young startup teams in implementing their projects in sphere of high technologies.
Members of the LNMM also took part in this event and presented ideas in four different directions:


– Biological and medical technologies
– Biotechnology in agriculture and industry
– Industrial technologies and materials
– Energy and energy-efficient technologies


All presentations were discussed by the experts with high interest and classified as useful and perspective ideas. Experts asked a lot of questions that gave a possibility to look at the presented work from a different point of view and gave a lot of advices for improving the marketing strategy and development of a detailed plan for the fabrication of prototypes and their promotion on the market.
All members of LNMM were invited to the next tour in the StartUp Village which will take place in Skolkovo at the 2nd and 3rd of June.
