  • ITMO Teams Up With Charging Systems Manufacturer To Develop Russia’s First Wireless Electric Car Charger

    Scientists from ITMO’s School of Physics and Engineering teamed up with Yablochkov, a technology company producing charging systems for electric vehicles, to create a prototype of the first Russian vehicle charger that is completely wireless. Using the SAE J2954 power transfer standard, this system fits all types of vehicles – from cars and buses to driverless taxis and forklifts. Currently, the prototype can fully charge an electrocar over the course of six hours, but in half a year’s time it will be capable of filling a car battery up to 80% capacity in just an hour. Keep reading to find out how this charging station works and what the future has in store for it.


  • ITMO Students Make a Battery That Can Be Wirelessly Recharged up to 500 Times

    In spite of their many disadvantages, batteries remain one of the key components in contemporary electronics. While changing their structure entirely is impossible due to the chemical and physical processes happening inside, scientists, startups, and major companies are searching for ways to reinvent them or adopt totally new approaches. One such approach was suggested by students of ITMO’s School of Physics and Engineering – their nine-volt battery can be recharged wirelessly with a regular smartphone charger. ITMO.NEWS breaks down the science behind the new device.
