  • Scientists Create Smallest Semiconductor Laser That Works in Visible Range at Room Temperature

    An international team of researchers announced the development of the world’s most compact semiconductor laser that works in the visible range at room temperature. According to the authors of the research, the laser is a nanoparticle of only 310 nanometers in size (which is 3,000 times less than a millimeter) that can produce green coherent light at room temperature. The research article was published in ACS Nano.

  • Scientists Develop Light-emitting Composite Material Based on Perovskite Nanocrystals with Air- and Water Resistant Optical Characteristics

    An international team of scientists including researchers from ITMO University has developed a new composite material based on perovskite nanocrystals to fabricate miniature light sources with improved performance. Protection of perovskite nanocrystals within porous glass microspheres made it possible to increase their stability by almost 3 times. Moreover, the subsequent coating of these particles with polymers resulted in the fabrication of water-dispersible luminescent microspheres based on CsPbBr3 nanocrystals. This method of fabrication is especially important for the implementation of perovskite nanocrystals in diverse biological applications. The results have been published in ChemNanoMat.

  • Scientists Propose a Carbon Dot-Based Method for Increasing the Efficiency of Solar Cells and LED

    An international group of scientists, including some from ITMO University, has proposed a method that allows for significantly increasing the efficiency of solar cells and light-emitting diodes. The scientists managed to achieve this result by augmenting the auxiliary layers of the devices responsible for electron transport rather than working with the main active layer. The work has been published in the journal Advanced Functional Materials.
