A world analysis staff led by NUST MISIS has developed a brand new iron-cobalt-nickel nanocomposite with tunable magnetic properties. The nanocomposite could possibly be used to guard cash and securities from counterfeiting.
Presently, analysis on magnetic nanomaterials with managed magnetic traits is among the most promising fields. Because of their small dimension, in addition to their glorious magnetic and electrical properties these supplies have a broad vary of potential purposes from cellular gadgets to house applied sciences.
The brand new iron-cobalt-nickel nanocomposite was obtained by chemical precipitation, adopted by a discount course of.
“This methodology is easy and, most significantly, it permits the properties of the product to be managed at every stage of its manufacturing, and chemically pure nanopowders to be produced with a given composition, form, and dispersion,” famous Yuri Konyukhov, Deputy Head of the Division of Useful Nanosystems and Excessive-Temperature Supplies at NUST MISIS.
Konyukhov additionally careworn that the brand new composite was noticed to own excessive worth of coercivity, which makes the expertise relevant e.g. to magnetic rubbers and totally different magnetically coupled gadgets. One other potential utility is defending cash and securities from counterfeiting.
“The efforts of the scientific neighborhood have been just lately centered on defending people and digital gadgets from electromagnetic radiation. The event of skinny, versatile and comparatively clear metal-polymer composites for EMI shielding is a promising analysis course. Using the brand new nanocomposite with managed magnetic properties because the magnetic filler might result in a breakthrough in EMI safety,” added Yuri Konyukhov.
