Scientists Develop New Analysis Method of Non-Linear Optical Properties

Scientists Develop New Analysis Method of Non-Linear Optical Properties

Scientists from ITMO University in collaboration with their colleagues from National Taiwan Normal University have developed a high-sensitivity method of studying the non-linear optical properties of substances. Unlike other research in this area, this project uses a collimated (unfocused) laser beam, which allowed the researchers to decrease the power density applied to a sample, though at the price of loss of useful signal. Using a special procedure for recording holograms and processing images, as well as using a special computational modeling algorithm, they have been able to measure the properties of optically non-linear media despite a weak signal. The project opens up new possibilities for diagnostics of non-linear properties. Results of the research were published in Optics Letters.

A Dummies Guide to Mushroom Hunting

A Dummies Guide to Mushroom Hunting

From late summer till autumn’s first chills, many Russians leave the comfort of their homes and dachas to go mushroom hunting. Getting up as early as possible to spend your whole day in a forest  poking about the undergrowth sure sounds like a strange idea; still, this seemingly tedious activity is ever popular. For those willing to try this traditional Russian pastime, we’ve decided to give a few tips, as well as try to figure out what exactly is so good about hunting a game that can’t run.

Researchers Investigate Correlation Between Blood Flow and Body Position

Researchers Investigate Correlation Between Blood Flow and Body Position

For the first time ever, an international research group detected alterations in capillary blood flow around the face caused by body position change. This became possible through the use of imaging photoplethysmography. Using this method, scientists can examine blood vessels located in the carotid system in order to, for example, investigate the cerebral blood flow response to various stimuli in health and disease. The results of the research were published in Scientific Reports.

ITMO.STARS Winners Share Their Experience

ITMO.STARS Winners Share Their Experience

This year marked the first time when ITMO University launched ITMO.STARS, a contest for talented and motivated school students willing to enter ITMO University. There was only one condition: you have to get the minimal Unified State Exam score and be ready to present the result of your own research, social, or business project to the contest committee. 14 school students from different Russian cities became winners and got the opportunity to study at ITMO for free. In this interview with ITMO.NEWS, they talk about the professions of the future, as well as share their advice on how to learn programming in a small town, and how to pluck up your courage to apply for a contest.

Stolovaya: Eating Lunch Like a Russian

Stolovaya: Eating Lunch Like a Russian

A Russian lunch goes with stolovaya like bread and butter. It’s a perfect place to fuel up, to try out classic Russian dishes and to catch up on school news. And it’s seriously inexpensive. And pastries are fresh and yummy. You can’t get an espresso there, but then you can’t have everything, right?
