This year’s winners of the Presidential Grant contest for young scientists have been announced. Among them are eight ITMO University researchers.
ITMO Student Dmitriy Tsarev on Theoretical Physicists, Quantum Physics and Its Similarities With Professional Sports
ITMO scientists together with their colleagues from Taiwan have published a paper that could serve as a basis for next-gen technologies of ultra precision metrology. These technologies will surpass LIGO detectors, which are capable of detecting gravitational waves. ITMO.NEWS met with Dmitriy Tsarev, a member of the research team, to learn more about their work and future plans.
A team of researchers from ITMO University and Australian National University came up with a new concept of photonic topological structures. Localized states of light in such structures appear not due to the intentionally designed lattice geometry but rather because of spatial variation of particles' properties.
The synthesis of such compounds is a step towards creating artificial cells. Scientists of ITMO’s Infochemistry Research Center are now embarking on the way to DNA encapsulation.
2020 wasn’t easy – many of us had to change our approach to life and work. But we stayed together and helped each other no matter what. ITMO.NEWS and ITMO’s staff and students reflect on the year’s main results, achievements, unforgettable events, and proud moments.
For over 15 years, scientists have been exploring the nature of carbon dot emission, and this image illustrates the relationship between the emission intensity and the concentration of particles in the dry layer.
The video features an experiment in the localization of biological objects, namely, spores of Lycopodium Clavatum (with an average size of 30 microns), in a quadrupole electrodynamic trap.
Various species of spiders use silk from their spinnerets to produce threads for their webs. In science, these threads can serve as a multifunctional natural material for drug delivery and other medical applications.
St. Petersburg is a city with many names and faces: the Venice of the North, the Cradle of Three Revolutions, the City of White Nights – and, above all, the cultural capital of Russia. And if you’ve ever wondered about the origins of this honorable title, here are some facts and figures to convince you of its right to bear it.
For the first time in its history, ITMO University has received approval on three megagrant applications at once. Soon, laboratories for optoelectronics, MRI, and cultural heritage studies will launch in St. Petersburg.
