ITMO in Media
Researchers from ITMO University, the Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU), the Image Processing Systems Institute of RAS, and Tokai University (Japan) have discovered a way to fashion microcrystals into desired shapes for further use in the production of lenses and other optoelectronic elements without loss of quality.
Scientists from ITMO University and Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) have proven that small objects, just like big ones, are capable of perfect light absorption. The results of this research will be helpful in the development of new technologies for wireless transfer of energy and data. The paper was published in Laser and Photonics Reviews.
Skoltech researchers and their colleagues from RAS Institute for Physics of Microstructures, Lobachevsky State University of Nizhny Novgorod, ITMO University, Lomonosov Moscow State University, and A.M. Prokhorov General Physics Institute have found a way to increase photoluminescence in silicon, the notoriously poor emitter and absorber of photons at the heart of all modern electronics. This discovery may pave the way to photonic integrated circuits, boosting their performance. The paper was published in the journal Laser and Photonics Reviews.
Russian national operator Rostelecom has opened its new cybersecurity R&D centre in St. Petersburg. The centre was launched in cooperation with the ICT university ITMO and students of the university will be able to develop their skills there.
Scientists from ITMO University of St Petersburg have developed a production method for biointegrable nanoparticles that can be controlled via heat.
Laser 'paintbrush' creates one-inch scale version of Vincent Van Gogh's masterpiece 'The Starry Night' on metal that can be changed and erased
Scientists from ITMO University have upgraded the technology for “painting” on metal surfaces. Now, artists can apply their images onto metal quickly and easily, as well as make edits more than 30 times. The new method lies at the foundation of a new laser brush that will make it possible to create colorful pictures on metal manually, just like with a pencil or a marker.
Noli Music, a startup founded by an ITMO student, has developed a guitar that will allow practically anyone to play guitar. The device will be useful both for beginners and for people with disabilities.
Scientists from ITMO University’s Faculty of Infocommunication Technologies have launched the first NFT tokens based on the artwork of the robot artist Gaka-Chu. The tokens are quite popular: buyers are already ready to pay $1,600 at the current Ether rate. Gaka-Chu will be able to spend its earnings on new paint, brushes, and canvases.
Scientists from ITMO University and MIPT have studied the formation and growth of crystals from simple organic molecules into large associations. These experiments will help create capsules for targeted drug delivery to specific tissues in the human body.
An ITMO PhD student and her colleagues from Russia, Spain and Singapore have developed flexible sensing films based on silver nanoparticles that can be used to identify the presence of pesticide residue on the surface of agricultural produce in minutes. The research results were published in Nanoscale.
