The International Conference on Electrical Power Drive Systems (ICEPDS) is held every two years at Russian universities that significantly contribute to the development of energy systems.
Anna Kuzikova, a “Terahertz Biomedicine” Laboratory employee, who is studying at ITMO University's Department of Photonics and Optical Information Technology, has won an international competition for the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society scholarship. It is one of the most prestigious scholarships for young scientists studying radio-frequency, microwave and terahertz radiation. No more than twenty people a year receive such an award. However, this is the seventh victory of an ITMO University student in the last twenty years. The jury praised Anna for her work on the diagnosis of cancer with terahertz radiation. An ITMO.NEWS correspondent met with the honored young scientist and learned how this research can help doctors, what Anna Kuzikova is going to do after this project and why she considers competitiveness as one of the main drivers of science.
ITMO University student Egor Litvinov believes that 2019 may well be his lucky year: he’s won a presidential scholarship to pursue studies abroad, became a laureate of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society scholarship and attended international conferences in Paris and Yokohama, where he also got the opportunity to present his research. ITMO.NEWS met with Egor to find all about his work and successes.
ITMO graduate Anton Zaytsev who is currently doing a PhD program at the University’s Faculty of Photonics and Optical Information has become one of the six people to receive a scholarship from the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society for implementing the project “Development of optically tunable graphene-based THz devices”. ITMO.NEWS spoke to Anton to learn how terahertz radiation can replace the X-ray, why he and his colleagues are looking for a replacement for single-layer graphene, and what is to be considered when applying for an international grant.
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.
