Top World Scientists Gather at Laser and Photonics Congress in St. Petersburg
The field of photonics, optical science, lasers and nanotechnology are the foundation for creating innovative technologies which will significantly improve the quality of life of the population, including the effectiveness of various devices used in manufacturing, medicine, ecology and other aspects of life. The International Congress “Lasers and Photonics”, organized by ITMO University, brings together top scientists of the world to explore the latest developments in this sphere.
ITMO Researchers Presented Innovative Lasers
ITMO University`s scientists developed two research prototypes of lasers applied for geodetic purposes and guidance systems. All components of this laser were developed in Russia. Having tested the device the researchers came to the point that it proved to be more effective than other ones produced by Russian specialists. It is also planned to launch mass production of the lasers.
A Super Precision Device for Oil and Gas Exploration Searches New Deposits in the Shortest Possible Time
Sergei Kashcheev, engineer of the International Laboratory “Laser Systems,” became a winner of XII Energy of Youth, a competition of youth research projects in the energy sector, one of the parts of Global Energy Prize, all Russian energy research contest. Mr. Kashcheev together with his research team presented a laser system for oil and gas exploration called Raman lidar. The system gives an opportunity to reduce costs for oil and natural gas production.
