  • ITMO Scientists Suggest Way to Control Optical Properties of Novel 2D Materials in Low Temperatures

    We live in a world of portable blood glucose monitors, smart clothes, tiny sensors, and nanometer chips. All of that is not the limit, especially with the appearance of 2D materials based on dichalcogenides of transition metals. However, these materials are still hardly applicable in low temperatures. Read on to discover how researchers from ITMO have suggested this problem could be solved.


  • Researchers Design New Synthesis Method for Carbon Nanodots With Potential Applications in Biomedicine

    Scientists from ITMO University, St. Petersburg State University, TU Dresden, Ioffe Institute, and City University of Hong Kong have devised water-soluble carbon nanodots that demonstrate efficient luminescence in the long wavelength spectral region. The researchers also managed to achieve the highest possible photoluminescence quantum yield reported so far for carbon nanodots emitting in the near-infrared spectral region. The developed nanoparticles can be used as non-toxic fluorescent probes for bioimaging. Read on to learn more about the study and its findings.


  • Idea to Startup: Students & Staff on ITMO Accelerator’s Winter School for Monterrey Institute of Technology

    For the second year in a row, the ITMO Accelerator has held a winter school for students of the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education (Mexico). This year, the school brought together 24 students. During the two-week course, the school’s participants had the chance to try their hand at developing their own projects from scratch.


  • South Korea and ITMO University Strengthen Academic Cooperation

    On May 31, Kwon Dongseok, the Consul General of the Republic of Korea in St. Petersburg, paid his first official visit to ITMO University, accompanied by the consul Park Ju Yon and the administrative officer Lee Sung Kyung.


  • Get to Know ITMO Technopark’s XLab

    At the end of last year, ITMO Technopark welcomed a new space called XLab – a coworking, an advanced laboratory for developing prototypes, and a venue for various thematic events: lectures, hackathons, and championships.


  • What Will Happen if Everyone Switches To Electric Cars?

    Scientists from Tallinn University of Technology, Aalto University, and ITMO University have researched how charging of electric cars influences the electricity distribution networks. By studying different types of electric cars, batteries, charging profiles, and habits of users, they have suggested a rational model for charging electric vehicles with minimal load on the electric grid.
