  • ITMO Researchers Propose Power Regulator for Optical Devices

    A revolutionary approach to managing the state of optical devices was proposed by a group of scientists from ITMO University and the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT). The researchers managed to control the devices’ power by varying the angle of incidence, thus allowing for more convenient regulation. Optical systems can now be turned on and off the same as lights or electric devices. The findings of the study, conducted within the program Klever, will pave the way for the production of elements for optoelectronic microdevices.

  • Liquid Metal Makes Production of Porous Metals for Batteries Easier

    Researchers from ITMO University have devised a low-cost, eco-friendly method to produce porous materials for batteries and catalysts (substances that accelerate chemical reactions) by using a liquid metal (sodium-potassium alloy) as a reagent. The results of the study were published in Chemical Communications.

  • Games for Lectures: Introducing IdenTrack, ITMO’s New Educational Platform

    IdenTrack is a new educational platform that helps students get into research, write scientific papers, present their ideas, and build their individual learning tracks. Unlike conventional online courses, the platform is structured like a game where students experience life-like situations guided by virtual mentors. By now, over 1,000 students have already taken courses on the platform – with over 80% of them completing their tracks. Read on to learn more about the platform and the minds behind it.

  • Researchers Note Topological Effects in New Waveguide Metamaterial

    A novel waveguide-based metamaterial, suggested by physicists from ITMO University and their colleagues from University of Chile, has been shown to exhibit topological states. Upon contact with the edge of a sample, the light that passes through the lattice is nearly never distributed inside the structure, unlike in traditional waveguide gratings. The findings were published in Nano Letters.
