On June 29-30, the third SchooL on Advanced Light-Emitting and Optical Materials (SLALOM) was held at ITMO University. The event is organized by the Laboratory of Hybrid Nanophotonics and Optoelectronics on the basis of ITMO’s Faculty of Physics and Engineering together with Lomonosov Moscow State University and with support from the Russian Science Foundation. For the first time in its history, this year the school took place online.
There are different ways that you could make use of the period of restrictions necessitated by the ongoing pandemic. One of these is self-education, taking online courses, watching video lectures. The staff over at ITMO University’s Faculty of Physics and Engineering have decided to take a step further and moved their traditional seminars on theoretical physics, nano-optics and microwave technologies to online. The seminars allow you to listen to world-renowned scientists talking about their latest work, ongoing experiments and the cutting edge of science beyond the popular science format.
On September 14-18, 2020, the capital of Georgia is planning to host the METANANO international conference. Held in Russia over the recent years, the event is venturing abroad to the sunlit city of Tbilisi. Despite the pandemic, the preparations for the conference are still ongoing. The organizers are thinking about how to introduce online formats into the program. Talented students, PhD researchers and young scientists wishing to attend METANANO can partake in a grants competition. Abstracts have to be sent in by March 31. More on the conditions for participation, the program, formats and speakers of the conference in this article by ITMO.NEWS.
Sergey Makarov, Head of ITMO University’s Laboratory of Hybrid Nanophotonics and Optoelectronics and senior research associate at the Faculty of Physics and Engineering, became a laureate of the President of Russia Award for Young Scientists in the Field of Science and Innovation. The official results have been announced today, February 3, in Moscow, with the related decree published on the website of the president of Russia. The award recognized the physicist’s contribution to the studies of optical properties of resonant semiconductor nanoparticles the use of which can help improve solar cells and optical microscopes, and, in the future, advance in the fight against cancer as well as the creation of optical computers. More about the researcher’s work and its results in this article by ITMO.NEWS.
An international team of researchers from ITMO University, the Australian National University, and Korea University have experimentally trapped an electromagnetic wave in a gallium arsenide nanoresonator a few hundred nanometers in size for a record-breaking time. Earlier attempts to trap light for such a long time have only been successful with much larger resonators. In addition, the researchers have provided experimental proof that this resonator may be used as a basis for an efficient light frequency nanoconverter. The results of this research have raised great interest among the scientific community and were published in Science, one of the world’s leading academic journals. Scientists have suggested drastically new opportunities for subwavelength optics and nanophotonics – including the development of compact sensors, night vision devices, and optical data transmission technologies.
A research group from ITMO University has published a review paper on the prospective use of halide perovskite-based materials, which they believe are capable of causing a revolution in nanophotonics. The paper was spoken highly of by the editorial board of Applied Physics Reviews. In this article, the researchers speak to ITMO.NEWS about the unique qualities of perovskites that will allow them to improve the efficiency of solar cells and describe the advantages of the new material over the conventional silicon.
The 4th METANANO Conference on Nanophotonics and Metamaterials has recently ended in St. Petersburg. Organized by ITMO University’s International Research Center for Nanophotonics and Metamaterials, the event brought together some 400 researchers from Europe, America, Asia and Africa. In the course of five days, they discussed a wide range of topics, from fundamental research in photonics and plasmonics to business projects in the field of radiofrequency technologies, bionanotechnologies and solar energy. Read on to learn more about the conference and its results.
The Russian Academy of Sciences has recently announced the recipients of its annual award recognizing outstanding young scientists and students of Russian higher education institutions. Among this year’s winners are four research associates from ITMO University: a group of scientists comprised of Valentin Milichko, Dmitry Zuev and Sergey Makarov, who took first prize in the field of general physics and astronomy, and ITMO University Master’s student and engineer Artem Ashirov, who won the prize for a project of applicational significance.
METANANO-2019: World’s Top Scientists to Celebrate 10th Anniversary of Center of Nanophotonics and Metamaterials in St. Petersburg
METANANO-2019, the fourth conference on nanophotonics and metamaterials, will take place on July 15-19, 2019 in St. Petersburg. Scientists from MIT, ParisTech, and other major scientific centers of the world will discuss the latest advances in science. Each year, the METANANO conference grows in popularity thanks to its expansive range of subjects and a discussion program that’s updated every year in accordance with the latest trends. METANANO-2019 will include symposiums, special sessions, and lectures by renowned scientists.
Hybrid metal-dielectric structures hold great promise for the development of new data recording devices, improved sensors and optical chips. This is the field that Yali Sun, a PhD student from ITMO's Faculty of Physics and Engineering, focuses on. Back in China, she obtained education in the field of electronics, and then chose to focus on nanophotonics. In an interview with ITMO.NEWS, she spoke about the differences between education in Russia and China, gender issues, and working in this new relevant field.
