A lowkey breakthrough
Tired of noise? Researchers from the School of Physics and Engineering have developed translucent 3D-printed structures that are capable of reducing sound levels without being a visual nuisance. According to the team, their technology may be used in the production of roadside barriers and similar installations.
There are many fields of application for the so-called twisted particles, from astrophysics to quantum science. But the specifics of their production impose a limit on their use in particle collider reseach. Physicists from ITMO have come forth with a solution based on generalized measurements. If implemented, the technology will be important to the future of research facilities such as European XFEL and others.
A brighter future with perovskites
With conventional transistors reaching their limit of efficiency, researchers look to optical computers as the next generation of tech. One of their tasks is to devise efficient and affordable ways to control optical signals – and a recent publication may offer the way to go. Using halide perovskites, the scientists were able to produce record-high values and prove the viability of their proposed method.
Taming the Python
The Russian telecommunications giant MTS and ITMO University have announced a new course as part of the online Master’s program Machine Learning Engineering. Focusing on the development of Python-based recommendation systems, it will include lectures, seminars, and Q&A sessions with industry members alongside case assignments.
Grants for young engineers
Since its launch earlier in the year, ITMO’s Advanced Engineering School has made headlines numerous times, the latest instance being in relation to a scholarship contest for ambitious students. ITMO.NEWS met with three of the winners to learn about their projects – a revolutionary algorithm for nanophysics researchers, an automated deployment system for machine learning models, and a genomic data analysis platform.
Millions for ITMO students
In more grant-related successes, eleven students from ITMO have received 1-million-ruble grants from the Foundation for Assistance to SIEs. The winners’ projects range in their nature from online services and mobile apps to medical software, food safety sensors, and even a machine learning-based assistant for musicians.
