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.
At the laboratory, company’s staff and ITMO students can do research, testing, and assemble components and equipment. ITMO.NEWS spoke with the company’s founder and CEO Nikita Burov and the head of its engineering team Egor Serduk about its capabilities, results, and plans for the future.
ITMO University has recently launched a new unit that specializes in studying quantum processes. According to the founders of the new laboratory, they are planning to introduce breakthrough theoretical developments of fundamental physics into experimental science. ITMO.NEWS contacted Anton Kozubov, the head of the new laboratory’s theoretical department, in order to learn more about the tasks that the scientists have set for themselves, as well as why their completion can expand the horizons of modern physics.
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.
