Shvabe Has Installed Laser Microscope at Perm Research University
OREANDA-NEWS. Shvabe Holding has installed a nanometre-scale resolution modulation interference microscope at the Perm state national research university (PGNIU).
The supply of MIM-340 microscope to the university, which is manufactured by E.S. Yalamov Ural optical mechanics plant PA JSC, a Shvabe's enterprise has been carried out by Shvabe - Perm LLC, a Holding's subsidiary. The device will take part in the implementation of projects in the sphere of integral optics and creation of photon integral circuits.
"The Holding is interested in cooperation with Russian educational institutions. PGNIU is our old partner, and we are planning to continue our cooperation. We are glad that our innovative equipment will provide help in the achievement of scientific discoveries", told Nickolai Rakovich, Shvabe JSC's deputy general director for R&D and innovative development.
Anatoliy Volyntsev, Doctor of physics and mathematics, professor, head of PGNIU's solid state physics chair, underlines the importance of using the MIM-340 microscope in implementation of various projects related to domestic manufacture and imports phase-out in the sphere of integral optics as well as in creation of various photon integral circuits. Besides, it is planned to use high resolution research engineering products in order to implement a joint project of Perm Science & Production instrument-making company and PGNIU. The investigation is aimed at development of the base technology and creation of development prototypes of photon integral circuits for devices, systems and complexes of optoelectronic navigation instrument-making in 2014-2016 in accordance with the Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation No.218 dated 09.04.2010.
"The use of this device is especially important in the sphere of integral optics as well as in creation various photon integral circuits. They are the main components of navigation equipment and means for orientation of marine and aerospace basing and other components of high-precision instrument-making", told Anatoliy Volyntsev, Doctor of physics and mathematics, professor, head of PGNIU's solid state physics chair.
MIM-340 laser microscope with long travel precision coordinate position table is a powerful tool for solving a broad circle of research problems in electronics, material science, medicine and optical production. The project has been nominated among 10 best research efforts in Europe.
