An international team of researchers from ITMO’s School of Physics and Engineering and Tor Vergata University of Rome found a way to increase the efficiency of perovskite-based solar cells. The project was supported by a Russian Science Foundation grant and its results were described in a paper published in Nano Energy.
A team of researchers from the ITMO University’s School of Physics and Engineering, the Nonlinear Physics Center at the Australian National University (ANU), and Korea University has developed a compact nanolaser based on a photonic crystal waveguide with super-high efficiency. The device is a photonic structure and is notable for its small size compared to its counterparts. An article about this device was published in Nature Communications.
The proposed structure allows to generate electromagnetic fields without dissipating any energy into the surrounding environment. This type of electromagnetic source will pave the way for technological breakthroughs, such as highly efficient wireless power transfer systems, high-precision sensors, and RFID technology.
Scientists from ITMO University, the National University of Colombia, and the University of Siena have developed a metasurface with a unique structure and properties. The proposed solution makes it possible to generate surface waves with new characteristics, transfer them from point to point while maintaining their initial polarization, and therefore improve information communication. The relevant article is published in Physical Review X.
Kuban CTF (Capture The Flag) is a team competition in computer security that took place as part of Kuban Cyber Security Conference 2021. ITMO’s student team won the competition for the second time.
ITMO University students spent their spring semester learning how best to communicate with their international collaborators, what to avoid when writing an article for a peer-reviewed journal, and what to keep in mind during a conference presentation. In this article, students share their experiences from the course.
This project will help researchers better understand the genetics of insects spreading this dangerous disease. For instance, biologists got the opportunity to search for regions of mosquito genomes responsible for connection with the pathogen and for their feeding behavior. The authors of the project believe that in the future they will provide their colleagues with new tools to prevent the spread of malaria. The results of the project were published in GigaScience.
With the use of a new method for improving solar cells, researchers have been able to boost the functionality and performance of small-molecule-based organic solar cells. The cells can be made transparent and even more stable through the use of carbon nanostructures and a special ionic liquid. Find out more below.
Innovative Entrepreneurship for Students: ITMO Technopark Organizes Winter School for Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education
