  • Liquid Metal Makes Production of Porous Metals for Batteries Easier

    Researchers from ITMO University have devised a low-cost, eco-friendly method to produce porous materials for batteries and catalysts (substances that accelerate chemical reactions) by using a liquid metal (sodium-potassium alloy) as a reagent. The results of the study were published in Chemical Communications.

  • Researchers Note Topological Effects in New Waveguide Metamaterial

    A novel waveguide-based metamaterial, suggested by physicists from ITMO University and their colleagues from University of Chile, has been shown to exhibit topological states. Upon contact with the edge of a sample, the light that passes through the lattice is nearly never distributed inside the structure, unlike in traditional waveguide gratings. The findings were published in Nano Letters.

  • Researchers at ITMO Create More Durable Blue Perovskite Diodes for RGB Screens

    ITMO University scientists have found a new way of creating blue-emitting perovskite nanocrystals that makes them more stable, while their light doesn’t change to green overtime, unlike existing counterparts. Such light sources can serve as a platform for manufacturing of RGB displays for TVs and phones with a higher quality color rendering, which will also be cheaper than their analogs. The results of the project are described in a paper published in  ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces.

  • ITMO Scientists Suggest Platform to Study Cell Communication and Assist Targeted Drug Delivery

    Researchers from ITMO University have developed a platform that will help study extracellular cell communication. Unlike its counterparts, the new platform can identify the precise location of cells without interrupting their function – this way, it’s possible to observe cells in their natural state. This solution will facilitate rehabilitation of cell communication after injuries and help create materials for targeted drug delivery. The new platform is described in an article published in Materials & Design.
