  • ITMO Researchers Develop Unique Printing Technology for Invisible Images

    This inkjet printing technology makes it possible to create a transparent protective image that can only be seen using polarized light – such as when using a smartphone screen.


  • Inkjet Printers Can Produce Cheap Micro-Waveguides for Optical Computers

    Scientists from ITMO University have proposed a new technology for creating optical micro-waveguides based on inkjet printing. By using this method, it is possible to create waveguides with the necessary parameters quickly and without expensive equipment and complex procedures. The new technology is now being optimized for the production of optical elements on an industrial scale. The results are published in Advanced Optical Materials.


  • New Research Allows Jet-Printing of Piezostructures and Holograms on Any Surface

    ITMO University’s Master's students Vladislav Slabov and Kirill Keller talk about the role of inkjet printing methods in their new research. The scientists have created a way to not only print chromatic holograms on any surface but also to create high-quality organic piezoelectric structures. The results of their research were published in Advanced Functional Materials and Applied Materials & Interfaces.


  • Nanoparticle Ink Lets Regular Inkjet Printers Produce Glowing Holograms

    Researchers at ITMO University have unveiled a new approach to printing luminescent structures based on nanoparticle ink. The unique optical properties of the ink were achieved by means of europium-doped zirconia. Particles of this material were proven to be useful in manufacturing glowing holographic coatings with a high degree of protection. Notably, the developed approach enables the fabrication of custom holograms by means of a simple inkjet printer. The results of the research were published in RSC Nanoscale.
