Scientists in Kaliningrad, in Northwest Russia, are developing nanodimensional X-ray optic materials and next gen instruments for X-ray scanners, regional portal Klops.ru reported. In this effort being jointly pushed by Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University (BFU) and Bochvar VNIINM (a research arm of Rosatom, the national umbrella company for nuclear energy projects), the new materials are reportedly expected to help researchers control the radiation properties in X-ray devices. The project developers aim to eventually set up innovation production of such materials and also launch the manufacture of material-based next generation instruments to be used in X-ray scanning. According to Alexander Goikhman, the CEO of Functional Nanomaterials, a BFU spin-off, using the new materials could lead to the development of an X-ray microscope enabling nanodimensional resolution images...
