Korea?s Samsung Electronics is considering using next-generation Siberian sensors in its new equipment for mammography, according to the Rusnano website. The Korean company is said to have reached an agreement last week with the Tomsk Nanotech Center, an R&D facility that Rusnano, Russia?s largest government-owned nanotech company, has opened in Siberia?s Tomsk to focus on an array of projects, including this one. According to the developer?s estimates, the new Tomsk technology will make it possible to nearly halve a patient?s exposure to radiation and reduce the time of a checkup while also increasing the equipment?s resolution. The Tomsk Nanotech Center is pushing its radiation technology project with an eye to commercializing a specific sensor technology for a range of applications, based on chromium-doped gallium arsenide, a new chemical compound created in this Siberian city. The two parties expect that their collaboration will start from making a trial run of the new sensing and testing it. The Tomsk Nanotech Center will reportedly act as a seed investor funding the trial run and a series of testing...
