  • ITMO Student Devises Smart Backpack for On-the-Go Recharging

    What do you do if you’re out late, your phone’s dead, and you need a ride? Maksim Myagkih, a student at ITMO’s Faculty of Photonics, has designed a prototype of a powered backpack that charges up when you walk. We asked Maksim how fast you’ll need to run to charge your phone, what other devices are compatible with the backpack, and whether it can replace the common portable charger or power bank in the future. 


  • ITMO University Scientists Develop a Tool for Wireless Charging of Multiple Devices

    Researchers from the Faculty of Physics and Engineering managed to achieve simultaneous power transfer at various frequencies with the help of a metasurface. It will allow us to simultaneously charge devices from different manufacturers with different power transfer standards. The paper was published in Applied Physics Letters.
