2. Students at the National University of Science and Technology (MISiS) are developing a new self-reinforcing polymer synthetic material that can extend the life of artificial implants in tubes. Due to the increased strength and abrasion resistance of the material during development, it is expected to extend the life of the intraluminal prosthesis by at least 1.5 times, and can be used for fractures and chronic bone diseases such as arthritis and joint dysplasia.

5. Scientists at the NTI Competitiveness Center “Sensorica” have developed a new technology for the production of infrared photodetector matrices, which allows the camera to see the infrared range that only mosquitoes, snakes and some fish can see. Using this technology, it is possible to identify objects behind fog, dust or opaque obstacles in dark water.
