  • Optical Computers Explained: Will They Replace the Regular Kind?

    Modern computers are becoming increasingly more power-hungry and their performance doesn’t always meet our needs. Some say that optical computers could be the solution. ITMO University professor Ivan Iorsh spoke to ITMO.NEWS to help us learn what they are.


  • Scientists Grow Optical Chips in a Petri Dish

    The modern photonics industry is constantly working on making its devices more compact, be it computing systems or sensors and lidars. For this, it is necessary to make lasers, transistors and other elements smaller. A team of scientists led by ITMO researchers proposed a quick and affordable method to create optical chips right in a Petri dish. The research was published in ACS Nano.
