Alexander Korsakov, a young scientist at Ural Federal University (UrFU) in Yekaterinburg, has been awarded this year?s Russian Youth Prize for Nanotechnology for the development of brand new fiber optic probes for infrared interferometer spectrometers, the UrFU press service announced. Developed just recently, the new probes have already been put into production at UrFU?s Innovation Infrared Fiber Technologies Center. ?The fiber optic probe that my colleagues and I have developed facilitates the monitoring of a range of crucial chemical processes in sectors such as oil and gas or pharma. At the heart of the invention are nanocrystalline light guides enabling work with a broad infrared spectral range. The advantages of the technology include a unique material and a complete cycle from early stage production to commercial introduction,? Mr...
