Alexander Omelyanchik won the students grant for participation in 1st Conference on Nanomaterials Applied to Life Science NALS2017 for the upcoming conference in Gijón, Spain on 12-15th December. He will present the poster presentation “Evolution of magnetic properties of manganese oxide nanoparticles during dissolution”.

27 October - 11 November, 2017

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.

27 October - 11 November, 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.

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).
