Scientific - Educational Center of SHS
(Self-Propagating High-Temperature Synthesis)
since 1989

SHS Center has been established in 1989 in order to launch scientific integration of Institute of High-Education (National University of Science and Technology MISIS) and academic science (Institute of Structural Macrokinetics of Russian Academy of Science) in the field of Self-Propagating High-Temperature Synthesis (SHS). Nowadays the SHS Center is a multidisciplinary research center located at the Moscow State Institute of Steel and Alloys. SHS Center research activities focus mainly on material science, technology and applications of advanced composite materials and new coating and film systems. This is achieved through our research and development program areas...

Scientific Activity

Every year educational activity includes graduate training in following courses: Physical-Chemical and Technological Principles of Synthesis of Inorganic Materials in Combustion Regime, Structural Macrokinetics, Technologies of SHS. Education and training of postgraduate students is achieved by their involvement in the research and development programs. Training also carries out in the frame of VINF (Virtual Institute of Nanostructured Films) ( of EXCELL FP6 project). 27 staffs including 4 Dr. Sc. and Professors, 9 PhD and Assoc. Prof., 14 engineers and technicians, 6 post-graduates, 12 students are working now in SHS-Center. In the last two decades the SHS-Center has been awarded by a number of international awards in the field of SHS and surface engineering: CRDF, INTAS, NATO-Russia, EUREKA, ISTC, UK Royal Society, FP6, FP7. The expertise and research leadership of SHS-Center is evidenced by above 600 publications on mentioned fields of expertise in referees national and international journals, books, proceedings, and multiple patents and know-how on the technologies. The team of SHS-Center collaborates with leading research centres in the USA, Europe, Asia, and Japan. Staffs of SHS-Center are members of International Association on SHS (SHS-AS), Int. Committee on SHS, European Joint Committee for Plasma and Ion Surface Engineering EJC/PISE, International Advisory Committee of FGM, Int. Committee on Plasma Surface Engineering, Int. Committee on Metallurgical Coatings and Thin Films, Int. Committee of World Ceramic Congress CIMTEC.  ...
