  • New Faculty Opens Its Doors for Bachelors

    The new Physical Technical Faculty started working on January 1, 2017. This summer it will launch a program for Bachelors called "Nanophotonics and Quantum Physics."


  • Baltic Research Contest: Best Students, Great Opportunities

    The Baltic Research Contest gives its winners a rare opportunity: to experience what a full-fledged scientist does and present a project to a group of world-class experts at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF). Maksim Vagner, last year's winner and now a freshman at ITMO University, shared about his research project, the skills he got during the contest and Intel ISEF.


  • ITMO’s Researchers for Nature: How Does New Ultra-Compact Laser Work?

    Among others articles in January’s issue of Nature there is "Optical physics: Supercavity lasing" article by ITMO’s researchers Yuri Kivshar and Mikhail Rybin, devoted to research by physicists from University of California, San Diego. In the article Russian researchers talk to representatives of scientific fields, unrelated to photonics, about compact infrared lasers of a new generation that use bound states in the continuum (BICs) concept.


  • A Guide for Energy Saving: How to Make It Safer and Cheaper

    Modern science is still puzzled with the problem of a lack of fuel materials and aims to develop new effective and safe methods of storage and saving energy. These days bio and nanotechnologies as well as nonstandard chemical elements are used for these purposes. We’ve prepared a review of achievements in this field made by international researchers and ITMO University.


  • The Art&Science Cluster Opens Its Doors

    Recently ITMO University initiated the Art&Science Cluster. Created thanks to the interaction of specialists from different areas and fields like science, education, culture, business and art, this "innovative environment" will meet the requirements of the modern world. Read how experts in such dissimilar fields plan to work side by side.


  • How Do Researchers Write Academic Papers?

    The issue of Academic Writing (AW) comes upevery time we speak about research articles, conference papers, scientific journals and so forth. A success of any work depends on meeting strict requirements of the academic community. To get a deeper understanding of this subject, we talked to Yulia Sazanovich, English language teacher and tutor at the Academic Writing lab at ITMO about how the university helps its researches write their articles.


  • ITMO Fellowship Stories: 'Your Own Way Is not the Easiest One'

    Carlos Cabal Mirabal came to St. Petersburg over 40 years after his previous visit to present ITMO students his series of lectures on magnetic resonance (MR). In an interview to ITMO.NEWS the professor talked about his view on how science had changed thanks to modern technologies and what social and cultural transformations made young people think in a different way.


  • ITMO’s Nanosystems Journal Joins the Web of Science Core Collection

    The journal "Nanosystems: Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics" was included in the Web of Science Core Collection (WoS CC), a scientometric and bibliographic database. Publishing one’s article in a journal from the WoS CC is the most appropriate way of sharing one’s work with the international research community.


  • "Death and Life of Catalysts": Evgeny Pidko on Getting the ERC Grant and his Research Plans

    On December 13th, European Research Council published the list of researchers who got one of the most prestigious European grants — the ERC Consolidator Grants. Among them is Dr. Evgeny Pidko, professor at Eindhoven University of Technology (Netherlands), participant of ITMO Professorship program and member of the SCAMT International Laboratory. We've asked him to share about the grant and his current research plans and achievements.
