The creation of such materials became possible thanks to the joint efforts of researchers from St. Petersburg Academic University, ITMO University, Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, and Aalto University. Learn more about its advantages and ITMO’s contribution to the research in this article.
The new substance luminesces in the visible area and contains radicals in its structure. Research work continues, but the first results have already been published in Chemistry: The European Journal.
ITMO University Researchers Become First in Russia to Grow a Three-Dimensional Gallous Oxide Single-Crystal Ingot
The resulting semiconductor can be used in power electronics, solar-blind photodetectors, and other devices. The researchers have spent approximately five years in order to create the first Russian three-dimensional monocrystal.
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.
ITMO University’s international SCAMT (Solution Chemistry of Advanced Materials and Technologies) Laboratory has received a megagrant from the Russian government. ITMO.NEWS spoke to the staff to find out what kinds of new specialists will be needed at the laboratory, what developments within the framework of the megagrant are in the pipeline, and how this work will help to pave the way for a technological revolution in entire industrial fields.
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.
