  • From 3D-Printed Homes to Next-Gen Energy Storage: ITMO Fellow Maxim Arsentev on Symbiosis of Physical Chemistry and IT

    According to reports by the analytics company GlobalData, the global 3D printing industry will reach $36 billion by 2025 and $70 billion by 2030. With the help of additive technologies, it is now possible to print complex structures quickly, inexpensively, and on the spot – that includes prosthetics, car parts, or even sections of buildings. But to make such products sturdier, manufacturers need to identify the right material and design of the cell scaffolds – the “building blocks” of the technology. This is precisely the focus of Maxim Arsentev, a researcher at ITMO and a laureate of the ITMO Fellowship program. Speaking to ITMO.NEWS, he explains his career path and how IT tools are benefitting the field of physical chemistry.
