On October 25-26, 2019 the Council on Global Competitiveness Enhancement of Russian Universities (Project 5-100) convened for its 12th session in Moscow. Over the course of two days, universities participating in Project 5-100 presented the results of their work and their development plans for the future. Upon conclusion of the session, the project’s participants were sorted into three groups, ITMO University being ranked among the top 7.
Using the new method, scientists can synthesize perovskite nanolasers, which combine an optically active medium with a Fabry–Pérot high-Q resonator, in just five minutes. The nanolasers’ simple synthesis process and their unique optical qualities make them highly promising sources of coherent radiation in the development of high-sensitivity optical sensors and ultra-fast data transfer in photonic integrated circuits. Results of this research have been published in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces.
On February 8, the Erarta Museum of Contemporary Art will host the ITMO Open Science Conference. The event will bring together ITMO University’s researchers, PhD students and heads of the University’s departments, who will talk about the latest achievements in an unusual format. The conference’s mission is to provide a platform for efficient communication and knowledge exchange between the University’s schools and faculties.
It’s been a long, eventful year; let’s take a look back at the events, names, and ideas that defined 2018 for ITMO University.
This summer, the Sirius educational center for talented children in Sochi has held its usual session on project work, followed by the Nanograd summer school. ITMO University’s team, including specialists and postgraduate students from the Department of Nanophotonics and Metamaterials and staff of Technopark resident, company NT-SPb, took part.
Using nanoparticles for medical purposes is a promising method which remains sought-after for over 10 years. One of the most important breakthroughs in this field is optical heating of nanoparticles fixed on tumor cells. Using this method one can damage diseased cells with localized heating. To control the temperature without damaging living tissues researchers use golden particles. However, the current control methods are complicated and take lots of time. ITMO Master’s student Georgy Zograf tries to solve this problem using silicon nanoparticles. He became the first author of article devoted to the results of this study, which was published in Nano Letters.
THz radiation has various applications – from medicine to wireless communications. THz antennas can be based on dielectric nanoantennas – these days the researchers of ITMO’s Department of Nanophotonics and Metamaterials are pioneers in this promising field. Sergei Lepeshov, the author of a project devoted to dielectric nanoantenna’s development, shared about the technology.
Russian scientists discovered meadowsweet activity in preventing neurocarcinogenesis in rats. Having increased risks of rodents to get cancer, the researchers proved that those animals, which were given the meadowsweet decoction instead of water, had the number of brain and spinal cord tumors reduced by two and three times respectively. According to the scientists, the work determines a further research path in the field of natural cancer inhibitors. The experiment results were reported in Journal of Neuro-Oncology.
Available THz: An Article by ITMO’s Researchers Is on the Cover of the Magazine Laser&Photonics Reviews
Laser&Photonics Reviews published an article by ITMO University researchers in its January issue; the illustration to the article was put on the cover. The article is devoted to ways of enhancing terahertz radiation by photoconductive and optical nanoantennas.
Mechanisms of interaction between microorganisms and plants, for instance, symbiosis of bacteria and vegetables, are a poorly researched field. Making a breakthrough can lead to new technologies of food storage. The specialists of International Research Center "Biotechnologies of the Third Millennium" study this issue in order to develop anti-parasitic medications. This year Romain Darriaut, Master’s student from Sup’Biotech University, joined the research group.
