  • ITMO’s Monday Science Roundup #49

    If you’ve been wondering what scientific advances have been made at ITMO over the past two weeks, wonder no more! From major strides in medical research to identifying game addiction – and an ambitious science art exhibition – here are the key new moments in ITMO’s science life.


  • Flexible Electronics and Sensors: Researchers Develop Improved Method for Copper Micropattern Printing

    Scientists from ITMO University and the Institute of Chemistry of St. Petersburg State University have developed a more affordable and efficient method that makes printing copper micropatterns on a glass surface 100 times faster. The resulting micropatterns can be used  in various devices, such as chemical sensors, flexible electronics, and anti-theft systems.


  • ITMO’s Monday Science Roundup #5

    We’re back again with the key science news from the past couple weeks. This time, we’ve got: a rankings success, insights into the art of science communication, exciting nanoscience research, and summer schools for fledgling scientists.


  • ITMO Researchers Develop Lab-on-Chip Hardware for Detection of Substance Traces in Media

    The newly-developed elements have found a use in the detection of dangerous molecules in a given medium. Laser recording methods make it possible to integrate various functional elements within the glass chip.


  • ITMO University Researchers Develop New Technique for Production of Plasmonics Devices

    Using a complex real-time mathematical analysis model, the researchers will now be able to manipulate the process of creating photonic and plasmonic components in order to produce the exact needed optical properties.


  • Scientific Seminars by ITMO’s Faculty of Physics and Engineering Are Now Available 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.


  • AI vs. Nanotechnology: ITMO Scientists on What Tech to Expect in the Near Future

    The online project Stay The F Home Bar launched almost concurrently with the start of the pandemic. One of its virtual rooms, called I Speak You Listen, is designed as a venue for open lectures. ITMO University scientists recently tried out this new format; on May 7, George Zograf, PhD student of the Faculty of Physics and Engineering, and Andrey Filchenkov, head of the Machine Learning Lab, took part in an open talk during which they discussed the near future of AI and nanoscience – and whether we should fear them.


  • Reach Out and Touch Science: Sirius Conference Participants at ITMO University

    From February 10 to 15, five students from Moscow, Kazan and Saint Petersburg took part in an internship at the Faculty of Physics and Engineering at ITMO University. Supervised by researchers and postgraduate students, they worked for a week on a real experiment with high-tech equipment. You can find on ITMO.NEWS information about what “smart labels” are and how to work on them, as well as what experience in general you can get from such internships.


  • Blood Nanofilters and Graphene Gas Sensors: “Big Challenges” Summer Camp

    Over the course of the “Big Challenges” summer camp organized by the Sirius education center, ITMO University’s Faculty of Physics and Engineering lecturers trained promising school students in nanotechnologies research methods. Under the tutors’ helpful guidance, camp participants developed two high-level scientific projects: they created ordered nanostructures arrays for new generation devices and designed a highly sensitive graphene-based gas sensor. By doing that, the young inventors learned to not only follow complex and extremely convoluted scientific instructions, but also to work in teams, be independent in their search for problem solutions, and commercialize their research results.


  • The Results of Workshop Week at SCAMT Lab

    SCAMT Workshop Week is a summer school in a unique new format. Over the course of a week, its participants work on one of the six research projects and hone their practical skills. This year’s students have synthesized a nanopharmaceutical drug and magnetic bacteria, printed an optical sensor, built a nanobot and worked on other hi-tech inventions. 40 students were selected from among 200 applicants from Russia and neighboring countries. ITMO.NEWS met with the students to learn more about their projects.
