1. Researchers from Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University have found that excited atoms in a waveguide spontaneously decay, mainly due to polarization selection. The discovery will be useful in the context of the development of quantum technologies.



2. Scientists from Tomsk Polytechnic University have proposed new wearable bioelectrodes for reading electrical signals while monitoring the heart. Experiments have shown that such electrodes can work twice as long as traditional analogs based on silver chloride. Moreover, they are flexible and moisture resistant, which allows them to be more securely fixed on the skin.



3. Researchers from Kazan Federal University, the Nizhny Novgorod Institute of Applied Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the University of Texas have learned how to control high-frequency gamma radiation using low-frequency acoustic exposure. The research, which was carried out by the scientists, will help in the control of the generated radiation on modern synchrotron sources and X-ray lasers and in the creation of promising quantum devices.



4. Employees of the Research Institute of Physical and Organic Chemistry of the Southern Federal University (Rostov-on-Don) are developing a fabric with copper nanoparticles that can protect people. The fabric will allow moisture and air to pass through well, while the copper nanoparticles in its composition will protect against coronavirus.



5. K-Sky, a resident of the Skolkovo Foundation's Biomedical Technologies Cluster, has attracted more than 130 million rubles of private investment to develop the Webiomed predictive analytics system for healthcare and to enter international markets. The operation of the system is based on its own comprehensive methodology for determining the risks of developing diseases and their complications, including the use of various models based on machine learning, analysis of medical data using natural language processing (NLP) methods and auxiliary algorithms based on clinical guidelines.
