  • In Search of Phantom: Regular Graphite and PVC to Help Diagnose Oncological Diseases

    ITMO University scientists from the Terahertz Medicine laboratory proposed a concept of a new phantom for calibrating medical terahertz spectrometers. The concept helps the devices to identify the boundaries of a tumor with better precision so that it would be easier to remove it surgically.


  • ITMO University PhD Student Evgeniy Odlyanitskiy on Creating a Laser Facility During Isolation

    Last year, Evgeniy Odlyanitskiy, ITMO University Faculty of Photonics and Optical Information’s PhD student, was invited for a six-month long internship at the University of Bordeaux in France. In six months, the Russian-French research team was supposed to create a laser system that is able to take high-quality pictures of objects in terahertz frequency range with subwave resolution. At the moment, the only system of that kind is located in Japan. Evgeniy was supposed to create his own version to be applied in the field of biophotonics. Read on to learn more about his research process and achieved results in this ITMO.NEWS article.


  • Eight-Hour Experiments and a Football Match: Chinese Scientists on Internship at ITMO University

    ITMO continues to expand its international partnerships. This past December, the University welcomed a group of optical scientists from the Changchun University of Science and Technology, China, who came to conduct an internship at the Terahertz Biomedicine laboratory. ITMO.NEWS met with the researchers to talk about their experience.


  • 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.


  • ITMO Fellow Ilya Anoshkin on Nanotubes and Working Abroad

    Terahertz technologies hail a new era where blood tests are much more accurate, and Internet faster. All this is thanks to nanomaterials and their unique properties. One of the leading researchers in this field, Ilya Anoshkin joined ITMO University’s teaching staff via the ITMO Fellowship program. In spite of his extensive and successful experience of working in Finland and Sweden, he is reluctant to call himself a scientist. ITMO.NEWS met Ilya to find out why, and to talk about the technologies of the future and his take on teaching at ITMO.


  • Beautiful Physics: ITMO Scientist Wins Award of Wikipedia’s Science Photo Competition

    Research associate at ITMO’s Laboratory of Femtosecond Optics and Femtotechnologies Semyon Smirnov has received an award of the Science Photo Competition hosted by Wikipedia. Performing an experiment, the scientist managed to get a snap of a femtosecond laser spark and the cone-like supercontinuum it created. This kind of radiation has a wide range of applications in many scientific fields, from the study of the properties of new materials and biologic tissues to the optimization of data transfer systems. The researcher shared about finding beauty in research and using photography to popularize science with ITMO.NEWS.


  • ITMO University Wins Most SPIE Scholarships in 2018

    Every year students and staff of ITMO University are awarded scholarships by the International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE). This year, five students representing the Terahertz Biomedicine and Metamaterials laboratories became the scholarship competition’s winners. ITMO University, therefore, has won the most spots, coming out ahead of the University of Arizona (four winners) and University of California (four winners).
