  • ITMO PhD Student Dmitry Zhirihin Receives Prestigious IEEE Graduate Fellowship

    Dmitry Zhirihin, a PhD student at ITMO University has received the Graduate Fellowship of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society. This prestigious award is annually granted to only 12 young scientists working in the field of microwave physics. The committee evaluated Dmitry’s research of topological insulators, deciding to fund his further work. ITMO.NEWS got in touch with Dmitry to learn about the work of a contemporary experimental scientist, the experiences of spending the Christmas holidays in the lab and the damage an unlocked door can do to the results of an experiment.


  • IEEE Scholarship recipient Anna Kuzikova: Science is What Drives Self-improvement

    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 Student Wins IEEE Undergraduate Scholarship

    This year six young scientists from the USA, Canada and Russia were awarded an IEEE MTT-S Undergraduate Scholarship. Maxim Masyukov, a fourth-year student at the Faculty of Photonics and Optical Information, was among the winners. MTT-S is the biggest international society of experts in microwave, millimeter-wave, and terahertz technologies. The society exists as part of the IEEE, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, and provides scholarships to students and postgraduates. Maxim’s research concerned the development of a chiral metasurface with tunable polarizing properties in THz frequency range. ITMO.NEWS asked him some questions about how to win such a scholarship.
