Another new structure within the Center for the development of science, technology and education in the field of defense and security of the state of TSU will be the Engineering center for microwave technology. The central industrial partner will be Miсran research and production company. The main areas of activity will be quantum superconducting electronics and optoelectronics and cyber-physical systems, the press service said.
It was previously reported that TSU radiophysicists under the guidance of professor Grigory Dunaevsky, developed the world's first device for treating frostbite with the help of microwave field. The essence of the technique is to warm limbs with the help of weak microwave radiation, which is able to warm the frostbitten part of the body to the full depth. The development was planned to be tested on volunteers in the Tomsk primary healthcare unit №2.
