Magnetic material 3D-printed from nonmagnetic powder

“Scientists from Skoltech and their colleagues have used a 3D printer to fuse two materials in an alloy whose composition continuously changes from one region of the sample to the other, endowing the alloy with gradient magnetic properties. Despite the …

Skoltech scientists use supercomputer to probe limits of Google’s quantum processor

“CPQM’s Laboratory for Quantum Information Processing has collaborated with the CDISE supercomputing team “Zhores” to emulate Google’s quantum processor. Reproducing noiseless data following the same statistics as Google’s recent experiments, the team was able to point to …

New optical ‘transistor’ to speed up computation up to 1,000 times, at lowest switching energy possible

“An international research team led by Skoltech and IBM has created an extremely energy-efficient optical switch that could replace electronic transistors in a new generation of computers manipulating photons rather than electrons. In addition to direct power saving, the switch …

Researchers tame silicon to interact with light for next-generation microelectronics

“Skoltech researchers and their colleagues from RAS Institute for Physics of Microstructures, Lobachevsky State University of Nizhny Novgorod, ITMO University, Lomonosov Moscow State University, and A.M. Prokhorov General Physics Institute have found a way to increase photoluminescence in silicon …

Skoltech scientists create a new electronegativity scale

“Skoltech chemists have proposed a new electronegativity scale and published their findings in Nature Communications. The concept of electronegativity introduced by Linus Pauling, a great American chemist, in the 1930s refers to the ability of an atom to attract electron …

A Skoltech method helps model the behavior of 2D materials under pressure

“Scientists from the Skoltech Center for Energy Science and Technology (CEST) have developed a method for modelling the behavior of 2D materials under pressure. The research will help create pressure sensors based on silicene or other 2D materials. The paper …

Skoltech scientist bridges the gap between quantum simulators and quantum computers

“A researcher from Skoltech has filled in the gaps connecting quantum simulators with more traditional quantum computers, discovering a new computationally universal model of quantum computation, the variational model. The paper was published as a Letter in the journal Physical …

3D printing to pave the way for Moon colonization

“A research team from the Skoltech Center for Design, Manufacturing and Materials (CDMM) comprising 2nd year PhD student Maxim Isachenkov, Senior Research Scientist Svyatoslav Chugunov, Professor Iskander Akhatov, and Professor Igor Shishkovsky has prepared an extensive review on the use …

Palladium, meet copper: Skoltech researchers use machine learning to improve catalysts

“Researchers from Skoltech and their colleagues from Germany and the US have studied the properties and behavior of a palladium-copper alloy under changing temperatures and hydrogen concentrations, with highly relevant implications of this research for catalyst design. The paper was …

Quantum machines learn “quantum data”

“Skoltech scientists have shown that quantum enhanced machine learning can be used on quantum (as opposed to classical) data, overcoming a significant slowdown common to these applications and opening a “fertile ground to develop computational insights into quantum systems”. The …
