Lana Ralston promotes U.S. - Russia business and science cooperation
by identifying reliable partners on both sides, bringing decision
makers together, facilitating negotiations and assisting in the
establishment of mutually beneficial business ventures.
After participating in the 2008 US-Russia World Forum USA-RUSSIA
Towards Economic, Political and Cultural Cooperation on May

you have a promising technology to sell Russians, please e-mail
Most people think of technology as flowing from West to East. Ralston
Independent Works (RIW) wants to encourage the flow of Russian technology
to the USA. Please read about the conferences
Russia is rich in research and development, a world leader in areas
of pure and applied physics, including lasers and submicron optical
technology. Faced with a shortage of media storage technology, Russian
scientists have devised ways of extending the life of the material:
an inexpensive diamond polymer coating technique developed by Russian
scientists extends the life of magnetic and optical storage devices
by four times, with a reduction in heat.
Russia has invested in submicron lithography, X-ray lithography,
and excimer laser lithography. These advances, originally developed
for defense purposes, are now available for peaceful use in the
in the post-Soviet era.
Trade is a two-way street. Russians are seeking to buy the fiber-optic
networking equipment needed in manufacturing.
