  • ITMO Researchers Twist Particles Using Quantum Entanglement

    Twisted particles have found their applications in many fields, such as optomechanics, biology, astrophysics, as well as quantum optics, information science, and communications, where, for instance, they can be used to increase data capacity. However, as these particles are primarily obtained through diffraction gratings, they can’t yet be used for experiments in nuclear and particle physics given the high energies of particles used in contemporary colliders. As a solution to this problem, physicists from ITMO University have suggested a method of obtaining such particles using the so-called generalized measurements, without relying on any special equipment. Their research was supported by a Russian Science Foundation grant, with its results published in The European Physical Journal C (Particles and Fields).


  • How To Teach a Computer To Interpret Text

    A team of scientists from ITMO University has created a model for an algorithm that can analyze the meaning of texts. It differs from regular neural networks because it not only takes into account word usage frequency but also introduces a category of subjective text perception. Read on to find out what it means for the future of artificial intelligence and how quantum theory is of help here.
