Today we’re taking you inside ITMO University’s “Functional Materials and Devices of Optoelectronics” Lab to learn about its equipment and projects.
ITMO University’s Infochemistry Center grew from an eponymous research group led by professor Ekaterina Skorb, formerly a group leader at the Max Planck Institute and Harvard researcher working under one of today’s most cited chemistry experts. Among the Center’s priority areas are interdisciplinary research at the intersection of mathematics and chemistry, experimental chemistry, and the introduction of hi-tech approaches into the industry. But its staff collaborates not only with mathematicians, biologists and IT specialists, but also artists. ITMO.NEWS spoke to Ekaterina Skorb about the Center’s tasks and projects.
ITMO University student Egor Litvinov believes that 2019 may well be his lucky year: he’s won a presidential scholarship to pursue studies abroad, became a laureate of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society scholarship and attended international conferences in Paris and Yokohama, where he also got the opportunity to present his research. ITMO.NEWS met with Egor to find all about his work and successes.
On September 2-3, ITMO University hosted Introduction Days, an orientation event for first-year Bachelor’s and Master’s students familiarizing them with the education process at the university and the opportunities it offers. The students took part in interactive sessions focused on introducing them to each other and teambuilding, attended lectures by leading ITMO scientists and learned about how to go on a semester exchange abroad.
Each year, ITMO University students discover the world as part of academic exchanges and research internships at a wide range of international universities. This year, several Master’s students of ITMO’s ChemBio Cluster worked on projects in state-of-the-art laboratories at universities in Belgium, Germany, and Israel. ITMO.NEWS spoke to the students to find out more about their projects and lessons they learned from being part of international research groups.
Light-guided photonics is one of the most rapidly developing disciplines of modern physics. Cutting-edge research in this field fosters the creation of new measuring systems for practically any physical value out there; one example is gyroscopes, which are integral for the effective operation of navigation systems. These next-gen optical fiber devices are the focus of ITMO University’s Laboratory of Alignment and Assembly of Light-Guided Photonic Devices, which is part of the Research Institute of Light-Guided Photonics headed by Prof. Igor Meshkovsky. ITMO.NEWS met with the Laboratory’s Head Stanislav Aksarin to learn about its creation and its current work.
DHlab is going to be the first initiative in St. Petersburg that is dedicated to Digital Humanities, a field of science right at the junction between IT and liberal arts. Among the research interests of the new laboratory that brought together both programmers and specialists in humanities are data visualization, mapping, and integrating such technologies as Big Data and machine learning into interdisciplinary projects.
ITMO University student Veronika Nikitina became one of the winners of a laboratory design competition which took place at ITMO University as part of an International Laboratory Design Conference. She presented her project at the Skolkovo Innovation Center.
As part of its new Art&Science Master’s program, ITMO University will host the Culture of the Future laboratory from May 18 to 20. The event will bring together artists, representatives of the field of innovations, journalists, culture experts, linguists and other specialists who are interested in introducing advanced technologies into nonscience. The laboratory will offer workshops and lectures by representatives of related fields. The project’s results will be presented during an open event on May 24.
The Danfoss Company has recently opened a training center on refrigeration technology at ITMO University. Students of three program tracks will have the opportunity to hone their practical skills on modern refrigeration equipment, conduct lab work and learn about the relevant trends in the industry. The center will also hold workshops for specialists from different companies.
