    ITMO Scientists Create Water-Resistant Perovskite Nanocrystals for Studying Living Cells

    ITMO scientists created perovskite nanocrystals that preserve their unique optical properties in water and biological fluids. This material offers new opportunities for the optical visualization of biological objects. It is an important achievement for the investigation of internal organs in living organisms and monitoring of the course of diseases. The results of this study were published in the Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters.

    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.
