Research Team from ITMO University, St. Petersburg State University, and Nova Southeastern University Is the First to Sequence the Genome of Moss Animals
Moss animals (Bryozoa) are a source of bryostatin, a promising material to be used in medicine. However, the genome of these species hasn’t been analyzed until now. The research has been published in Scientific Data.
ITMO Scientists Demonstrate Record-Breaking Light Coupling into Optical Fiber at Large Incidence Angles
The invention opens up new opportunities in the field of medicine, including endoscopy and laparoscopy, quantum technologies, and fiber-optic sensors. The concept proposed by the scientists got on the front cover of the October issue of ACS Photonics.
The suggested method allows researchers to control whole-cell biocatalysis without any effect on the cells’ viability. The method can considerably improve biosynthetic and biotechnological processes. The research has been published in The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters.
Staff members of the Laboratory of Quantum Processes and Measurements have found the cause of errors that occur on subcarrier frequencies in quantum key distribution (QKD) systems – as well as a way to eliminate it. Their research was published in Optics Express.
Authors of a paper on social relations’ modelling have adapted the popular model of human interaction in a society by adding individual preferences. According to the initial theory, human relations may reach a “paradise state” at some point. However, the new model contradicts this idea.
Researchers from the International Scientific and Research Institute of Bioengineering are the first to obtain nanofiber based on hyaluronic acid with introduced curcumin and usnic acid, natural biologically active substances. Such nanofibers can be used to create wound dressings for treatment of melanomas, burns, and ulcers.
ITMO Scientists Use Computer Vision Technologies and Neural Networks to Assess Meditation Efficiency
The algorithm created by ITMO researchers can assess a person’s psycho-emotional state based on a smartphone video of a meditation session. It tracks evenness of breath, body positioning and limb movements. The research results were published in Future Internet.
Researchers from Far Eastern Federal University and ITMO University optimized earlier produced gold nanoparticles in such a way that they control the wavelength of light in an optimal manner. The research can be used for creating cheap and high-precision gas analysers. The article was published in Applied Physics Letters.
The method allows scientists to get an image close to a holographic one in its properties but with less energy input. In theory, the method could be applied in industrial quality control or acquiring images of concealed objects, for instance, in transillumination of envelopes.
Scientists Suggest Using Gold Nanoparticle Metasurfaces to Determine Substance Molecular Composition
This will make it possible to create compact devices that will accurately determine molecular composition of a liquid or gas, and help identify potentially dangerous chemical compounds. The results of the work carried out by researchers from ITMO University and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel have been published in Nanomaterials.
