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.
For six years, a research team from the Photophysics of Surface Laboratory at ITMO’s International Research and Educational Center for Physics of Nanostructures has been studying plasmonic nanolasers – a long-standing subject of debate in the scientific community. The study was conducted as part of a Russian Presidential Grant.
The creation of such materials became possible thanks to the joint efforts of researchers from St. Petersburg Academic University, ITMO University, Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, and Aalto University. Learn more about its advantages and ITMO’s contribution to the research in this article.
In the future, the results of this project may provide the foundation for artificial cells. The research was published in Nature Nanotechnology.
The results of this research can be used to control the properties of light and matter and to create quantum memory.
The coating is based on active substances, in particular, bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP-2), loaded into the titania layer and modified by polypyrrole. If this coating is fabricated on the implant surface, it is possible to accelerate the injury recovery and to control this process using infrared radiation (IR).
In the future, the use of quasicrystals may open up new possibilities for laser and sensor design. This paper was published in the Advanced Optical Materials journal.
Researchers have created drug delivery systems based on hollow calcium carbonate particles, resembling the E. coli K12 bacterium in shape. This approach may potentially allow further development of carriers that can be perceived by pathogens as their own cells, integrate into bacterial biofilms, and release a therapeutic agent in a controlled manner, when necessary.
The new substance luminesces in the visible area and contains radicals in its structure. Research work continues, but the first results have already been published in Chemistry: The European Journal.
Scientific and Technical Journal of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics Added Into Scopus
Based on the results of ITMO University's application, the Scopus Content Selection and Advisory Board (CSAB) recommended the Scientific and Technical Journal of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics for inclusion in the largest abstract and citation Scopus database. Currently, this database indexes about 24,000 titles of scientific publications. Scopus is developed and owned by Elsevier Publishing Corporation.
