Summer Camp 2021

in Nanostructures for Biomedical and Sensor Applications

August 9 - 20, 2021

Summer Camp

Our two-week summer school “Nanostructures for Biomedical and Sensor Applications” will give you theoretical and practical skills in synthesis, characterization, and study of quantum semiconductor nanocrystals, plasmonic and magnetic nanoparticles, and hybrid structures based on them, which are promising for theranostic systems and sensors. Lectures and workshops will be presented by leading scientists in the relevant fields at ITMO University.

Camp Program 

Being a student of our school you will be deeply engaged in the Bio- and Sensor-nanoworld and will observe nanostructures as really interdisciplinary objects, understanding of which requires the combined expertise in physical chemistry, biology, theoretical and experimental physics. The school will take place in face-to-face mode and you will be able to see our amazing city of Saint-Petersburg.

    Linear electrodynamic trap

    Take part in a master class on Russia's only electrodynamic (ion) trap-based equipment that allows the study of mass, size, and charge.

    Confocal microscopy

    Master-class on a laser scanning confocal microscope LSM-710 (Zeiss), which allows obtaining optical and luminescent images of samples by layer-by-layer analysis with the maximum possible spatial resolution for optical microscopes.

    Luminescence attenuation kinetics

    Attend a master class on the MicroTime 100 laser scanning fluorescence microscope (PicoQuant), which produces optical images of objects, 2D luminescence images, and luminescence decay time maps with diffraction spatial resolution.
