The RTU MIREA research team won the competition of the Russian Science Foundation “Research conducted by research groups under the guidance of young scientists” of the President’s program of research projects.
The competition is aimed to support a new generation of leaders in science and research. The Presidential Program of Research Projects was developed by the Foundation in 2017 on behalf of the Russian President Vladimir Putin. Its main objectives are to support long-term projects of the leading scientists and create career paths for promising young researchers.
The team representing RTU MIREA included:
Arseniy Mikhailovich Buryakov, Ph.D, Project manager, Senior Researcher, Laboratory of Ultrafast Dynamics of Ferroics, Department of Nanoelectronics, Institute of Physics and Technology;
- Sergey Dmitrievich Lavrov, Ph.D., Senior Researcher, Laboratory of Ultrafast Dynamics of Ferroics, Department of Nanoelectronics, Institute of Physics And Technology;
- Maksim Sergeevich Ivanov, Ph.D., Senior Researcher, Laboratory of Ultrafast Dynamics of Ferroics, Department of Nanoelectronics, Institute of Physics And Technology;
- Farhad Almazovich Zainullin, 1st year student of the magistracy, laboratory assistant of the educational laboratory of the Department of Nanoelectronics of the Institute of Physics and Technology;
- Sergey Vadimovich Ovcharenko, 4th year post-graduate student, junior researcher at the laboratory of ultrafast dynamics of ferroics, department of nanoelectronics at the Institute of Physics and Technology;
- Vladislav Romanovich Bilyk, PhD in Physics and Mathematics, Junior Researcher, Laboratory of Femtosecond Optics for Nanotechnology, Department of Nanoelectronics, Institute of Physics and Technology;
- Ekaterina Dmitrievna Lebedeva, 3rd year undergraduate student of the Department of Nanoelectronics at the Institute of Physics and Technology.
For the competition the team presented the Controlled spintronic hybrid THz emitters and detectors project. The work is aimed to create and study hybrid terahertz emitters and detectors based on a spintronic (hetero) structure with a monolayer of a transition metal dichalcogenide deposited on its surface.
The project also studies the possibility of controlling the parameters of THz radiation generated by hybrid structures. The terahertz range of electromagnetic radiation 0.1 – 30 THz has not been used for many years. But in the last decade it finds more and more applications: for areas already known (determination of the chemical composition of a substance, imaging, biology, medical and pharmaceutical sciences) and new promising areas (new generation 6G Wi Fi communication).
The amount of the competitive grant is 6 million roubles annually, it is awarded for three years with the possibility of prolongation on a competitive basis for another 2 years. The winners have received ample opportunity to conduct important research in spintronics.
