International X-radiation nano-control program announced

International X-radiation nano-control program announcedKaliningrad?s Baltic Federal University, a Moscow ?think-tank? and partners from the EU are developing technologies to use the nano to control X-radiation.

Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University (BFU), located in Kaliningrad, in Northwest Russia, and the High-Tech Research Institute of Nonorganic Materials (Bochvar VNIINM), a Moscow-headquartered ?think-tank? run by Rosatom, Russia?s largest umbrella for nuclear energy companies, are expected to play a pivotal role in the $6+m federally funded international effort to develop technologies that would use the nano to control X-radiation, New Kaliningrad reports citing a BFU source. The Russian government is reported to have allocated the money for an array of R&D projects under the overall program. Under plans, Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University will focus on a brand new technology that would enable the development of instruments to control X-radiation. In its part of the effort, BFU will work on the premises of the local Functional Nanomaterials scientific and educational center in Kaliningrad...
