MINSK, 30 November (BelTA) – An atomic-force microscope with 3D imaging will be developed in Belarus, BelTA learned from First Deputy Chairman of the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (NASB) Sergei Chizhik on 30 November.
The official said: “New opportunities open up and new technologies become available all the time. Italian developers presented a technology for designing and producing 3D images without polarized glasses at the Academy today. A protocol of intent was signed by the Academy, Realvision Group, and Ergonest Company. We will work together to present three-dimensional information without additional devices. Belarus makes good optic products and all kinds of microscopes are manufactured. This technology will give us additional capabilities. Our interests overlap in the area of atomic-force microscopy. Our devices can be enhanced with new ways of presenting data. We will be able to visualize the nanoworld in 3D.”
The new technology has many applications, including in healthcare, automobile engineering, and other areas. “Glassless 3D imaging will allow providing more information to medics. Surgeries will be planned in detail. Better oversight and adjustments to the surgery process will be available. It will also be useful for processing data sent by drones and satellites for the remote sensing of Earth,” noted Sergei Chizhik.
Italian and Belarusian specialists will also be able to work together to develop the relevant software. “Accomplishments of our programmers are known all over the world. A step forward will be made if we marry this expertise to the new technology,” added Sergei Chizhik.
The Italian inventor of the glassless 3D imaging technology Daniele de Molli spoke highly of scientific achievements of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus. “I am impressed by Belarusian R&D products. We will open a branch of Realvision Group in Belarus. It will allow our specialists to cooperate and create new products together. We have already perused the Academy's materials concerning the atomic-force microscope. I should say that such a microscope with 3D imaging will definitely be created in Belarus,” remarked the inventor.
The National Academy of Sciences of Belarus works hard to advance international cooperation in various spheres in the Year of Science. Results of these efforts will be summed up during the panel session on international scientific cooperation as part of the second congress of Belarusian scientists on 12 December.More about Society
