  • Colombian Scientist Juan Domingo Baena Doello on Wirelessly Charging Medical Implants Using Metamaterials

    Juan Baena, a professor at the National University of Colombia, is leading the research project Wave Processes in Medical Systems at ITMO University. His team is developing a wireless charging system for medical implants, including implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs), that will make non-invasive recharging possible. In this article, Prof. Juan Baena shares details about the ongoing project and explains how soccer brought him to science.


  • ITMO Physicists Suggest Method for Mass Production of Metal-Organic Frameworks for Gas Sensors

    The detection of harmful gasses during production is made possible with gas sensors. A promising method of manufacturing these devices involves 2D metal-organic frameworks (2D MOFs). These are special porous hybrid materials with features that make them excellent sensors. Scientists from ITMO University have suggested a new production method that would result in 2D MOFs of record length and thinness – not only in lab conditions, but on industrial scale, too.


  • ITMO’s Monday Science Roundup #39

  • ITMO Researchers Propose New Production Method for Biosensor Nanoparticles

    Physicists from ITMO’s International Research and Educational Center for Physics of Nanostructures have proposed a method of generating plasmonic chiral nanoparticles with the help of “twisted” laser radiation. The obtained structures can be used in biosensors and polarized photodetectors, detect impurities in gasses and liquids, as well as purify medications.


  • A Material Simulating Dark Matter Particles Described

    A research team from ITMO University has devised a metamaterial that may be used to investigate the properties of axions, also known as dark matter candidates. The paper was co-authored by Frank Wilczek, a laureate of the Nobel Prize in Physics, and published in Physical Review B.

  • How Migraines Happen: Latest Research Reveals New Details

    Despite the fact that one in every seven people worldwide experiences migraines, their exact mechanisms and treatment have not been completely explained. In pursuit of a cure, researchers use nitroglycerin injections to simulate migraines in animals. Though commonly known as a vasodilator, the drug has exhibited inverse properties in a recent study conducted by three Russian universities. The findings shed light on migraine triggers, paving the way for novel treatment strategies.


  • ITMO Experts Produce Algorithm to Improve Heart Attack Diagnostics

    The staff and students of ITMO’s Research Center “Strong AI in Industry” have come up with an algorithm that can tell if an ECG recording displays symptoms of a heart attack – all in one second. Trained on over 20,000 ECGs, the model is accurate in 85% of cases and can immediately highlight those parts of the recording that can be associated with a heart attack.
