The device is universal, highly sensitive, cheaper than its analogs from popular brands – and easy to use as it is wireless. A paper describing the device has been published in Nature Communications.
ITMO Physicists Discover Way to Achieve Stimulated Raman Scattering in Isolated Silicon Nanoparticles
An optimized design of silicon nanoparticles provides а more efficient transition from spontaneous to stimulated Raman scattering. The proposed approach also allowed researchers to reduce the size and volume of particles supporting the stimulated Raman scattering regime by tens of times compared to their existing counterparts. The researchers also designed a platform in the form of a silicon nanoparticle on a sapphire surface that can be applied in sensing, detection, and thermometry, opening up new opportunities for future applications in biomedicine, targeted drug delivery, and as an alternative to electronic devices in optical chips. The results of the research were published in Nano Letters.
What is thermoelectricity? How do scientists create new functional materials and smart systems in this field? Anastasia Tukmakova discussed relevant studies and dream projects in this interview with ITMO.NEWS.
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.
In addition to making it possible to improve the tools for analyzing user activity and algorithm training, the research also has fundamental value. Work on the project continued for about six months, with its results currently being used to develop research papers.
