  • Picture of the Week: AgInS Quantum Dots in CaCO3 Calcite Phase

    These structures can become an alternative to semiconductor cadmium nanocrystals, which will allow using them as a transport system for drug delivery. They make it possible for substances to reach their target locations without affecting the cells, organs, and tissues that they shouldn’t.


  • GIF of the Week: Spores of Lycopodium Clavatum in Electrodynamic Trap

    The video features an experiment in the localization of biological objects, namely, spores of Lycopodium Clavatum (with an average size of 30 microns), in a quadrupole electrodynamic trap.


  • ITMO University Researchers Shed New Light on Plasmonic Nanolasers

    For six years, a research team from the Photophysics of Surface Laboratory at ITMO’s International Research and Educational Center for Physics of Nanostructures has been studying plasmonic nanolasers – a long-standing subject of debate in the scientific community. The study was conducted as part of a Russian Presidential Grant.


  • Picture of the Week: An Atomic Force Microscope Celebrates Halloween

    The picture shows the probe of an atomic force microscope seen through a secondary optical microscope.


  • ITMO Graduate Wins National Theses Competition

    Vadim Rybin, a Bachelor's graduate of the Faculty of Photonics and Optical Information, won the national competition of theses called Be First in the Physics and Astronomy category. Now, Vadim is pursuing a Master’s degree. He discussed his thesis and scientific interests with ITMO.NEWS, and also told us how he created the “It’s a trap” student club, whose members are engaged in the study of ion traps.


  • Picture of the Week: Dendrites of Semiconductor Quantum Dots

    The photo was taken during a study aimed at increasing the efficiency of solar batteries.


  • One Summer and Three Schools: ITMO Master’s Student Wins Poster Session At Biophotonics Summer School

    Anastasia Lazareva has presented a report on the generation of reactive oxygen species with hybrid structures based on CdSe quantum dots and thermally annealed titanium butoxide. She received positive feedback from experts as well as offers to collaborate. 


  • ITMO Graduate Nikita Teplyakov on Working in Switzerland, Studying in the UK, and Breaking Stereotypes

    Nikita Teplyakov spoke to us about his path in science and explained how he managed to rack up 29 Scopus publications in six years as an ITMO student.


  • Scientists Suggest Using Gold Nanoparticle Metasurfaces to Determine Substance Molecular Composition

    This will make it possible to create compact devices that will accurately determine molecular composition of a liquid or gas, and help identify potentially dangerous chemical compounds. The results of the work carried out by researchers from ITMO University and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel have been published in Nanomaterials.


  • ITMO University Professor Joins Nanomaterials as Special Issue's Guest Editor

    Today, physicists, chemists, and materials scientists around the globe seem to have immersed themselves in the world of nanostructures, which promises us materials for unique lasers, remarkably efficient solar cells, quantum computers, and high-resolution monitors. But how efficiently can modern physics explain all the processes taking place in the nanoworld? Do theoretical and experimental physicists have enough reliable and simple tools to solve fundamental problems concerning nanomaterials? These questions are the subject of the special issue of the international peer-reviewed journal Nanomaterials". Its guest editor is Anatoly Fedorov, the head of the International Research and Education Center for Physics of Nanostructures and a professor at ITMO University.
