General information

The strategic objective of the creation of an international laboratory of advanced nano-photonics at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology is ensuring the technological leadership of Russia in fundamental and applied research in the domain of nano-photonics based on new quantum materials (two-dimensional materials, van der Waals heterostructures, artificial nano-materials) including the use of machine learning technologies.

Name of the project: Advanced nano-photonics: quantum materials and artificial intelligence

Goals and objectives

The creation and development of an international advanced nano-photonics laboratory in the field of quantum materials (including various 2D materials and functional heterostructures based on 2D materials) employing artificial intelligence technologies (deep machine learning) under the supervision of the leading scientist Luis Martin-Moreno to conduct breakthrough fundamental and exploratory research as well as applied studies and develop devices for civilian use aimed mainly at solving inter-disciplinary problems related to the application of new fundamental materials and artificial intelligence technologies and the creation of optical and optoelectronic appliances using these technologies on the basis of new physical principles.

The practical value of the study

The laboratory's research and developments in advanced nano-photonics will include:

  • The application of machine learning technologies for forecasting modelling of new optical materials with specified properties (programmable nano-photonics) and the application of for the optimisation of nano-photonic devices;
  • The development of a technology for the creation of artificial intelligence systems (neural interfaces based on two-dimensional materials for cybernetic organisms);
  • The study of optical properties of new two-dimensional materials, van der Waals heterostructures and programmable materials based on van der Waals heterostructures;
  • Developments in the field of post-silicon optoelectronics and photonics – thin-film flexible sensors, radio-frequency tags and identifiers, transparent displays;
  • The creation of fast optoelectronic devices (the integration of two-dimensional materials with silicon photonics devices for optical signal processing), photodetectors, optical modulators, compact radiation sources, high-frequency wireless communications (6G, THz Wi-Fi);
  • The development of truly single-photon sources for quantum-protected communication lines, including those based on new two-dimensional materials;
  • The creation of highly efficient photoelectric converters based on two-dimensional materials, van der Waals heterostructures, and perovskites.
