Professor Vladimir Ya. Shur, Ural Federal University, Ekaterinburg, Russia


Ural Centre for Shared Use ‘Modern Nanotechnologies’ – Achievements and Horizons


The Ural Centre for Shared Use ‘Modern Nanotechnologies’ of the Ural Federal University (UCSU MN UrFU) was founded in 2007. The current objectives of UCSU MN UrFU are: (i) fundamental and applied research in material science related to nanotechnology (ii) development of advanced material and device technologies based on nanotechnology (iii) effective use of the equipment to execute orders of regional enterprises and institutions (iv) providing the best conditions for invited researchers from Russia and abroad. UCSU MN UrFU became the key part of the Centre of Excellence UrFU ‘Research and development of functional nanomaterials for electronic and biomedicine application’ with the main investigation areas of: (i) waveguide structures in nonlinear-optical crystals for photonic applications (ii) new materials for supercapacitors and power sources (iii) domain walls and phase boundaries (iv) size effects and domain structure in ferroelectric nanocrystals (v) magnetoelectrics and multiferroics (vi) nanotoxicology and nanomaterial application in biomedicine (vii) ferroelectric-graphene structures for capacitors and memory devices (viii) functional visualization by scanning force microscopy. Recently UCSU MN UrFU became Russian leader of the Network Centre for Materials Science and Nanotechnologies of the BRICS countries.


Professor Vladimir Ya. Shur is Head of the Ferroelectrics Lab, Ural Federal University, Chair of Computer Physics and Director of the Ural Centre for Shared Use ‘Modern Nanotechnology’. He was invited and plenary lecturer at more than 100 international conferences and scientific schools. He has been a visiting professor and researcher of universities and scientific institutes worldwide: Stanford University, USA, Germany, France and Japan.
