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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
