The Russian Foundation for basic research (RFBR) this week summarizes the results of the second wave of the competition for basic research projects carried out by young scientists (My first grant). The first part of the list of supported projects was published at the end of March. Among the winners of the second wave was a scientific project submitted by a team of young scientists under the leadership of the programmer of the Department of mathematical modeling OF nanostructures and Biosystems Mitrofanov Vadim Valeryevich. The structure of the project included graduate students of the Department K. R. Asanov and D.A. Kolosov, whose scientific supervisor is the head of the Department, Professor O. E. Glukhova. The project "study of the prospects of using a new film graphene-nanotube composite as a detecting element of the electromagnetic radiation recorder in the ultraviolet, visible and infrared ranges", which received support, is devoted to solving the urgent problem of modern electronics – the fundamental search for a new material for the subsequent development of a model of the electromagnetic radiation recorder in the ultraviolet, visible and infrared ranges. The project considers a new film graphene-nanotube composite with horizontal packaging of tubes between graphene layers as such material. With the help of intellectual developments of the Department - software packages Kvazar and Mizar-will be carried out modeling of the propagation of electromagnetic waves in graphene-nanotube materials of different topology and determine the optical characteristics of the carbon material. The study of the optical properties of a film graphene-nanotube composite with horizontal packaging of tubes between graphene layers is the subject of a dissertation research conducted by Mitrofanov V. V. under the guidance of Professor O.E. Glukhova.
