3. Researchers from the Siberian Federal University and the V.I. L.V. Kirensk SB RAS studied the effect of alumina nanofibers on the physical and mechanical characteristics of refractory concrete, which is used for the production of crucibles, trays and other equipment of metallurgical plants. The use of nanofibers increases the flexural strength of modified concrete, compressive strength, and thermal resistance.



4. Scientists have developed a substance to better fix the fillings on the teeth. This ‘glue’ consists of natural hydroxyapatite, which is found in an eggshell and imitates the natural tooth tissue by its properties and composition.



5. NKFU students have created a robotic nurse assistant that is able to identify the patient and give him medications prescribed by the doctor, and in the future will perform other functions, including the patient's entertainment.
