  • How Holograms Can Help Preserve Artworks – And Even Restore Those Lost to Time

    Researchers from ITMO have proposed a novel method of art digitalization that utilizes analog holography and photogrammetry to produce more life-like 3D models of objects. Unlike commonly used techniques, the developed method can create highly accurate digital copies of artworks, including those deemed forever lost. The results of the study (part 1 and part 2) were published in Journal of the Optical Society of America A.


  • ITMO Researchers Propose Technology For More Efficient Detection of Hazardous Gas Leaks in Production

    Scientists from ITMO University have designed a way to increase the sensitivity of gas detectors, traditionally used in the gas and oil industry to prevent gas leaks. The answer may be a novel, laser-based technology that modifies chalcogenide films that make up the core of gas detection systems.


  • It’s Your Call: Highlights of the Sixth Educational Forum at ITMO

    On April 17, the sixth annual educational forum It’s Your Call! kicked in at ITMO. Aimed at the participants of the I Am a Professional contest, the event features lectures and workshops by experts from ITMO, Sberbank, and Yandex on IT, cybersecurity, robotics, machine learning, programming, and controlling drones. The participants will also learn to combine research and cutting edge technologies in their own startups. The event is organized in partnership with Sberbank.


  • TV Host Alexander Pushnoy on Scientific Experiments, AI Dangers, and Science Popularization

    Trading lecterns and suits for drums and leather jackets, ITMO Open Science Rocks is a major scientific event that combines a science festival and a rock concert into one. The headliner of the conference was Alexander Pushnoy – a showman, one-man band, physicist, and the original host of the legendary Russian TV science show Galileo. ITMO.NEWS talked to Alexander to learn more about what makes pop-sci timeless and why high-school physics classes should (or shouldn’t) be just as daring as ones you see on TV.


  • 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.
