  • ITMO Fellowship Stories: Kirill Bronnikov on Mie-Tronics, Resonance Effects, and the Future of Photonics

    According to Future Market Insights, the value of the global photonics market is expected to surpass $900 billion in 2023 and reach $1.6 trillion by 2033. Photonics has found its application in computer science, medicine, manufacturing, and quantum computing. In this interview, Kirill Bronnikov, a laureate of ITMO Fellowship program’s Postdoc track, who moved from Novosibirsk to study dielectric Mie-tronics at ITMO University, speaks about the prospects of the field and photonics-related research at ITMO.


  • ITMO Physicists Discover Way to Achieve Stimulated Raman Scattering in Isolated Silicon Nanoparticles

    An optimized design of silicon nanoparticles provides а more efficient transition from spontaneous to stimulated Raman scattering. The proposed approach also allowed researchers to reduce the size and volume of particles supporting the stimulated Raman scattering regime by tens of times compared to their existing counterparts. The researchers also designed a platform in the form of a silicon nanoparticle on a sapphire surface that can be applied in sensing, detection, and thermometry, opening up new opportunities for future applications in biomedicine, targeted drug delivery, and as an alternative to electronic devices in optical chips. The results of the research were published in Nano Letters.
