In late December, the students of ITMO’s Faculty of Physics and Engineering were first to try the new format of project defense aimed not only to expand their knowledge of the subject but also to train their presentation and teamwork skills.
These structures can become an alternative to semiconductor cadmium nanocrystals, which will allow using them as a transport system for drug delivery. They make it possible for substances to reach their target locations without affecting the cells, organs, and tissues that they shouldn’t.
A team of researchers from ITMO University and Australian National University came up with a new concept of photonic topological structures. Localized states of light in such structures appear not due to the intentionally designed lattice geometry but rather because of spatial variation of particles' properties.
ITMO University has recently acquired a major batch of new lab equipment: from simple lab kits to professional machinery. Read on to learn what opportunities this offers for ITMO students.
For over 15 years, scientists have been exploring the nature of carbon dot emission, and this image illustrates the relationship between the emission intensity and the concentration of particles in the dry layer.
The video features an experiment in the localization of biological objects, namely, spores of Lycopodium Clavatum (with an average size of 30 microns), in a quadrupole electrodynamic trap.
For six years, a research team from the Photophysics of Surface Laboratory at ITMO’s International Research and Educational Center for Physics of Nanostructures has been studying plasmonic nanolasers – a long-standing subject of debate in the scientific community. The study was conducted as part of a Russian Presidential Grant.
This will help scientists and engineers to better understand the properties of light propagating in materials with a hexagonal structure, and use this knowledge in fundamental research and the development of optical devices. Physicists from ITMO took part in this research. The article was published in Nature Photonics.
Perovskite-based devices could potentially be used to create commercial-purpose full-color displays that would be cheaper and more efficient than their existing OLED counterparts.
Results of the research performed by a joint team of physicists from ITMO University, Saint Petersburg Electrotechnical University "LETI", and the Australian National University, can be used to design highly efficient compact elements for microwave and optical devices, particularly elements for optical computers.
