On June 27-30, ITMO University hosted the international symposium Fundamentals of Laser Micro- and Nanotechnologies (FLAMN), a major research and industry event in the field of lasers, where the top experts in science, medicine, industry, and art discussed the future of laser micro- and nanotechnologies and presented their cutting-edge research results.
Last year, a new specialization titled Industrial Laser Technologies was opened for application as part of the Laser Technologies Master’s program. This year, students supervised by professionals from partner companies will learn how to develop laser sensors and other devices for applied use in the industry. Learn more about what kinds of projects can be implemented as part of studies and what’s in store for the program’s graduates in this ITMO.NEWS article.
Flexible Electronics and Sensors: Researchers Develop Improved Method for Copper Micropattern Printing
Scientists from ITMO University and the Institute of Chemistry of St. Petersburg State University have developed a more affordable and efficient method that makes printing copper micropatterns on a glass surface 100 times faster. The resulting micropatterns can be used in various devices, such as chemical sensors, flexible electronics, and anti-theft systems.
Researchers from ITMO’s Faculty of Nanoelectronics together with their colleagues from the Lebedev Physical Institute, D. Mendeleev University of Chemical Technology of Russia, and the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI have conducted a study that showed that nanolattices possess high spectral selectivity. Their layers can be used as color filters for specific wavelength ranges, and one glass plate can contain records of up to six layers. Using this technology, the scientists were able to implement dispersive birefringent filters, which have multiple applications. For instance, they can be used to create AR/VR color displays or novel biochemical sensors for bacterial analysis.
In 2020, we told you about the new method for processing implant surfaces to improve their biocompatibility developed at ITMO’s International Research Laboratory for Micro- and Nanotechnology Lasers. Recently, the company Lenmiriot announced the market launch of the first dental implants made with the new laser technology.
In summertime, ITMO University holds short-term intensive courses for school students under the aegis of ITMO.START. These summer schools are a great chance to explore fields that are actively pursued at the university.
The title image demonstrates the formation of a thin-walled glass sphere with the aid of laser radiation and evaporating substances.
With this non-paint brush of over 20 colors and shades, artists may no longer need to be afraid of uneven lines or inadequate palettes. All missteps can be easily erased or repainted with no risk of ruining a picture. The first prototype of the laser brush should see the light of day by the end of summer. In the meantime, the researchers have published an article describing the very technology of laser miniature painting on metallic surfaces.
The labels can be used to mark various electronics, medicine, and jewelry. Their authenticity can only be checked with special equipment, thus providing additional protection against fake merchandise. The research is published in Advanced Materials.
Team of the international laboratory “Laser Micro- and Nanotechnologies” wins Russian Science Foundation grant for fundamental research. The project is aimed at developing comprehensive methods for improving biocompatibility and bacterial resistance of medical titanium alloys, including those used in dental implants.
