  • ITMO Researchers Developing Alternative to PCR Testing

    A joint research team from ITMO University and the University of Central Florida are working on a new type of nanosensors – the so-called DNA nanomachines (nanorobots) – that can unfold RNA and DNA structures to identify pathogen-specific sequences. Unlike PCR tests, the new testing method does not require expensive equipment and special conditions and can thus be performed outside laboratories. Here is what you need to know about the novel diagnostics method. 


  • ITMO Scientists Propose Systems With Unique Interaction Between Photons and Mechanical Motion of Atoms

    The researchers managed to demonstrate that such systems possess the features of non-typical phase transitions, nonstandard symmetry, and its spontaneous breaking in a strong optomechanical interaction regime. This invention may potentially help scientists develop memory chips for future quantum computers.
