Researchers worldwide are speeding up particles in colliders and digging deep underground to find axions or WIMPs. No, these are not superhero codenames – but hypothetical particles that are some of the proposed candidates for dark matter. What is dark matter? Why is it worth studying?
ITMO Accelerator is introducing TechNet – a new track for startups in photonics, wireless technologies, the Internet of Things, energy transfer, and smart distributed energy systems.
Управление функциями оптоэлектронных устройств позволяет решать сложные задачи в области мониторинга здоровья человека, компактных носимых устройств, робототехники и Интернета вещей.
A new approach has been suggested at ITMO to enhance interaction of light and matter during metamaterials production. Compared to conventional methods, the novel approach requires less precision and relies on cheaper equipment, while producing more compact and sensitive lasers.
Zakhar Yakovlev, a first-year Master’s student at ITMO’s Faculty of Physics, notched up the record-breaking eight medals – a first in the six-season history of the I Am a Professional contest.
Scientists at ITMO University and their colleagues from the St. Petersburg Academic University and University of Tor Vergata (Italy) have developed high-performance perovskite solar cells. The improvement is thanks to the use of semiconductors based on wire-like nanocrystals.
