The article of scientists of the Institute of Biophysics published in an authoritative foreign journal

Director of the Institute of Biophysics, corr. member of ANAS Oktay K. Gasimov, and Junior Researcher of the Institute, young scientist Aytaj J. Guliyeva with colleagues from Italy in the framework of the international grant project ANAS-CNR, co-authored the article that was published in the journal of “Macromolecular Chemistry and Physics” with high impact factor indexed in “Thomson Reuters”.

The article describes the preparation of dye‐doped films employing silk fibroin (SF) as a biomaterial, capable of preserving the optical properties of the monomeric dye in the solid state, a critical requisite for optical and biolaser applications. A comprehensive physical-chemical characterization is reported for SF films doped with Rhodamine 6G, an ideal candidate for photonics and optoelectronics.

The publication of this research was made possible by modern equipment provided by the Institute of Biophysics with the support of the Presidium of ANAS.

At the Institute of Biophysics of ANAS research works are carried out on new laboratory equipments

At the Institute of Biophysics of the National Academy of Sciences of Azerbaijan, research works are carried out on new laboratory equipments.

The Institute, equipped with many modern devices, conducted scientific experiments on these equipments. For this purpose, the Institute of Biophysics developed biophysical, biochemical and molecular biological methods.

Junior researcher of the laboratory of “Structure, dynamics, and function of biomolecules” Laman Dashdamirova and magistrate of the Institute of Physics Said Pashayev conduct research with the equipment of Langmuir & Langmuir Blodgett.

According to the researchers, KSV NIMA Langmuir allows to obtain a monolayer in the liquid-gas phase, while NISA Langmuir KSV allows to obtain both a monolayer and enables this layer to be flowed to solid surface.

Researchers at the 1 boundary of the liquid-phase KSV NIMA Langmuir system, obtain monolayers of protein molecules and measuring the surface pressure, investigate the structural changes occurring in this layer.

To improve the quality of experiments, the laboratory staff with the participation of a master student developed a syringe pump, which is controlled by a computer. This allows the protein to flow into phases in any given amount and at a certain rate.

Also in the laboratory, to observe conformational changes at different temperatures the thermostat device was installed.
