  • Reusable Sensor for Early Detection of Kidney Stones Developed at ITMO

    Researchers from ITMO’s Infochemistry Scientific Center have created a biosensor that can quickly detect micromolar concentrations of uric acid, thus helping diagnose and treat urolithiasis (or kidney stones) at early stages. The results of the study were featured in Polymers.


  • ITMO Researchers Propose New Wireless Power Transfer System For MRI Scanners

    Scientists from ITMO’s Faculty of Physics have developed an antenna capable of capturing energy from alternating magnetic fields within MRI scanners and relaying it to additional devices used inside such systems. The technology can harvest nearly twice as much energy as its counterparts, thus representing a new significant step towards eliminating wires and expensive batteries from MRI equipment.


  • All About ITMO Researchers’ Latest Advances in Wireless Power Transfer

    Wireless power transfer technologies have been present on the market for several years now in the form of charging devices for smartphones and toothbrushes. But they are far from perfect: the capacities are lower than in analogous devices and the efficiency depends on the device’s ability to properly sync with the charger. Today, we’ll be looking into ways to reduce energy losses in WPT devices and what the staff of ITMO’s Faculty of Physics have accomplished in this field.


  • ITMO Researchers Create Light-Controlled Antenna for Fast and Secure 5G Data Transfer

    The new technology expands the coverage area even when the signal is weak by redirecting radiation from the base station to personal gadgets, drones, sensors, and other devices in the network. Compared to analogous devices, the new antenna is more energy-efficient, cheaper to produce, and has a simple adaptable design. 


  • ITMO Researchers Develop First-Ever Online Platform For Nanozyme Modeling

    Nanozymes are artificial enzymes made up of various nanoparticles. In contrast to natural enzymes, nanozymes demonstrate all the same properties while being easier to produce and work with. However, the hardest step in developing nanozyme-based drugs and diagnostic systems is modeling the necessary properties of their particles before synthesis. Researchers from ITMO’s SCAMT Institute have solved this task by developing DiZyme, the first platform in the world that predicts the catalytic activity of nanozymes.  


  • ITMO Scientists Find a Way to Turn Blood Into Protein

    A research team that includes employees of ITMO’s Faculty of Biotechnologies has come up with a technology for processing blood into animal feed additives and was awarded a grant for its implementation.


  • ITMO Scientists Propose Technology for Producing Fish Oil and Collagen From Herring Skin

    The project will make it possible to turn scraps from herring fillet production into valuable products that can be used in the food, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics industries. A major fish-processing company has already shown interest in the technology.


  • How ITMO Researchers Are Using Speech Analysis to Diagnose Dementia and Parkinson's

    ITMO University researchers, as part of an international team, have developed a speech analysis algorithm for the elderly that can help diagnose neurological diseases such as dementia and Parkinson's disease in the early stages.


  • We Made It in the Spirit of Apple: Former ITMO Student on Revolutionary Translator App

    Arseny Kogan studied applied informatics and mathematics at ITMO’s Information Technologies and Programming Faculty. His rocketing career meant that he had to leave university before graduation. His team is currently working on Graspp, an app tailor-made for reading books in a foreign language. To translate a word in this app, you only need to point at it with your finger. This unusual app is already getting publicity in the Russian media, and was featured by the App Store.


  • Recognize Me If You Can: Can Facial Recognition Systems Really Tell How We Feel?

    Facial recognition systems are becoming more and more widespread in different fields. According to a forecast by MarketsandMarkets, the associated market will have grown up to seven billion dollars by 2024. There is a lot of news in the media reporting that this technology helps catch criminals, define whether shops’ customers are satisfied, and even play the music they like. However, some research indicates that AI still experiences problems with recognizing people’s real emotions.
