  • ITMO Researchers Create Light-Controlled Antenna for Fast and Secure 5G Data Transfer

    The new technology expands the coverage area even when the signal is weak by redirecting radiation from the base station to personal gadgets, drones, sensors, and other devices in the network. Compared to analogous devices, the new antenna is more energy-efficient, cheaper to produce, and has a simple adaptable design. 


  • ITMO Researchers Create MRI Antennas That Allow For Better MRI Scans

    Thanks to this invention, MRI scanners used in research can become more powerful, improving the quality of acquired images without risks for the patient’s health. ITMO scientists developed the device together with their colleagues at the M-Cube international project. The research is published in Nature Communications. 


  • Meet the New Radiophysical Lab at ITMO's Faculty of Physics and Engineering

    ITMO University now has a new experimental complex: an anechoic chamber for testing antennas and studying the electrodynamic characteristics of the latest artificial materials. Andrey Sayanskiy, a Research Associate at the Faculty of Physics and Engineering, told ITMO.NEWS about the new complex and what its means for the university.


  • Physicists Design Next-Gen Antenna for Supersensitive Magnetic Field Detectors

    Scientists from ITMO University and the Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences have proposed a new microwave antenna that creates a uniform magnetic field in large volume. It is capable of uniform and coherent addressing of the electronic spins of an ensemble of nanodiamond structure defects. This can be used to create super-sensitive magnetic field detectors of a new generation for magnetoencephalography in the study and diagnosis of epilepsy and other diseases. The results are published in JETP Letters.


  • Scientists Develop Nanodiamond-based Controllable Light Source

    Physicists from ITMO University and Australian National University have developed the first-ever controlled nanodiamond-based light source. Experiments have shown that diamond shells can double the emission speed of light sources and help control them without any additional nano- and microstructures. This result was achieved due to artificially created defects in the diamonds’ crystal lattice. Results of this research are important for the development of quantum computers and optical networks. The study is published in Nanoscale. 


  • IEEE Award Winner Slobozhanyuk: “There Are No Stupid Questions in Science”

    Alexey Slobozhanyuk, a postgraduate student and research associate at ITMO University’s International Laboratory “Applied Radioengineering”, has received an award from the IEEE’s Antennas and Propagation Society. Such recognition provides many opportunities for work in research institutes all over the world, yet, the winner says, he wants to give back to his alma mater and his country. In an interview with ITMO.NEWS, Alexey speaks about his working process, how a scientist can remain enthusiastic and not get tired of work, what makes research important and relevant and why there are no stupid questions in science.


  • Visiting Scientist Silvio Hrabar: Why It’s Important to Find New Uses for Old Discoveries

    Being a scientist doesn’t just mean going to work – it means enjoying one’s work and turning it into a lifestyle, says Silvio Hrabar, ITMO University’s visiting scientist from University of Zagreb. He is conducting research into so-called “active” metamaterials which could provide a method of removing the physical limits of metamaterials. After all, these limits are the main reason why it’s so difficult to find an application for this technology. In an interview with ITMO.NEWS, Silvio Hrabar shared his thoughts on how this could be achieved, what should inspire a scientist and what are the advantages of bringing together physicists and mathematicians to study metamaterials.
