  • Researchers Develop Supersensitive Method to Measure Surface Topography With THz Radiation

    The method allows scientists to get an image close to a holographic one in its properties but with less energy input. In theory, the method could be applied in industrial quality control or acquiring images of concealed objects, for instance, in transillumination of envelopes. 


  • Four ITMO University Students Receive SPIE Optics and Photonics Education Scholarship

    Four young researchers from ITMO University were chosen to receive the prestigious scholarship of the Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE). The results of the scholarship competition have been recently announced on the SPIE website. SPIE annually supports students and PhD researchers working in promising fields. The scholarship is meant to cover attendance of SPIE conferences, participation in educational courses, and purchasing learning materials.

  • Head of ITMO's Femtomedicine Lab Olga Smolyanskaya on Applications of Terahertz Radiation in Medicine and Biology

    In collaboration with their Russian and international colleagues, ITMO University scientists have recently published a comprehensive overview of modern research on terahertz radiation-based diagnostic and visualisation methods. ITMO.NEWS met with one of the article’s authors, Olga Smolyanskaya, a research associate at ITMO’s Faculty of Photonics and Optical Information and head of the University's Femtomedicine Laboratory, to learn about the major emerging trends in this field.


  • Expert Opinion: What are Dielectric Nanoantennas and how to Apply THz Radiation?

    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.
