Hybrid Materials

The development of new materials is on the list of priorities in the development of science and technologies, as well as the list of breakthrough technologies of the Russian Federation. In recent years, the most actively developing area in the field of materials science is the study of properties of promising low-dimensional hybrid materials based on graphene to create high-performance electrochemical devices (supercapacitors) of the new generation.

Key Achievements
Modern analytical equipment is used to enable comprehensive analysis of chemical, physical, and technological properties of materials
A computing cluster of hybrid architecture with the performance of 27.5 TFlops, 2432 cores and the memory capacity of 4.88 TB was built at NSU. It allows to perform supercomputer simulation of heat and mass transfer processes in the study of various physical and chemical phenomena
