Research Summer Camp in Photonics 2021 ONLINE
ITMO University's traditional summer school in photonics is back! After the enforced break last year, the Faculty of Photonics and Optical IT has made a decision to move Summer School 2021 to online to ensure the safety of participants.
New Way to Improve Quantum Encryption in Optical Fiber Communication Lines
Staff members of the Laboratory of Quantum Processes and Measurements have found the cause of errors that occur on subcarrier frequencies in quantum key distribution (QKD) systems – as well as a way to eliminate it. Their research was in Optics Express.
Researchers Develop Supersensitive Method to Measure Surface Topography With THz Radiation
The method allows scientists to get an image close to a holographic one in its properties but with less energy input. In theory, the method could be applied in industrial quality control or acquiring images of concealed objects, for instance, in transillumination of envelopes.
Scientists of the Faculty of Photonics and Optoinformatics have developed a method of encoding information for the 6G standard
The information encoding method for 6G standard Scientists from the Faculty of Photonics and Optoinformatics at ITMO University have developed a method for coding information in the terahertz pulse. This method can be used to create wireless data transmission devices in the 6G standard. Such systems will accelerate data exchange by two to three orders of magnitude. Today, scientists around the world are working on ways to transfer data in the terahertz (THz) range, which would make it possible to send and receive information much faster than what is allowed by today’s technology. But the issue they’re facing is that it is much more difficult to encode data in the THz range than in the GHz range, which is currently used by 5G tech. A group of scientists from the laboratory of Femtosecond optics and femtotechnologies has demonstrated the possibility of modifying terahertz pulses in order to use them for data transmission. An article on this subject was published in Scientific Reports (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-020-66437-4) .
Laboratory of Quantum Processes and Measurements Launches at the Faculty of Photonics and Optoinformatics. Interview with Researcher
ITMO University has recently launched a new unit that specializes in studying quantum processes. According to the founders of the new laboratory, they are planning to introduce breakthrough theoretical developments of fundamental physics into an experimental science. ITMO.NEWS contacted Anton Kozubov, the head of the new laboratory’s theoretical department, in order to learn more about the tasks that the scientists have set for themselves, as well as why their completion can expand the horizons of modern physics.
