Physicists of the International Institute «Photonics and Optical Informatics» Conduct Study of Terahertz Radiation in Liquids

A research team from ITMO University and the University of Rochester (the USA) have conducted a study on the formation of terahertz radiation in liquids. Previously, the generation of such radiation in a liquid medium was considered impossible due to high absorption. However, in their new research, the scientists described this phenomenon’s physical nature and demonstrated that liquid radiation sources can be equally effective to traditional ones. The results have been published in Applied Physics Letters Nov. 1, 2018. The Editors felt that this article was one of the journal's best, and have chosen to promote it as a Featured Article.

Leading scientists of the International Institute of Photonics and Optoinformatics made presentations at the largest international forum «IRMMW-THz 2018».

Leading scientists of the International Institute of Photonics and Optoinformatics of ITMO University took part in the 43rd international conference on infrared, millimeter and terahertz waves "IRMMW-THz 2018", which was held from 9 to 14 September in Nagoya, Japan. This conference dates back to 1974 and is the best known largest continuous forum specifically dedicated to the field of microwave electronics and applications. The conference venue alternates between Europe, Asia and America in a three-year cycle. Every year the conference gathers more than five hundred participants from all over the world. Year by year the interest to the conference only grows, the geography and the number of its participants expands. This year the conference was attended by about 800 people with 392 oral and 335 poster presentations.

European Commission supports DigiTwins

18th of May, DigiTwins received an invitation from the European Commission to enter the next stage of the competition to become an EU Flagship for Future and Emerging Technologies. DigiTwins, a large research initiative in Europe and beyond aims at revolutionizing healthcare and biomedical research for the benefit of citizens and society and at contributing to Europe’s Digital Single Market strategy through the creation of Digital Twins.

Quantum network connects young scientists from Russia and U.S.

Nine students from the Institute of Optics (Rochester, USA) have arrived to ITMO University to participate in the Summer Research camp in Photonics–2016. They spent two summer weeks there not only for sightseeing, but also learning about the emerging practical applications of femtosecond optics, terahertz biomedicine and quantum information technologies. Together with their ITMO fellows, two guests, Eric Herbert and Barry Magenya, were involved in unique quantum communications project.
