Reviews on workshops in the laboratories

Some days ago we had a scientific excursion. It was very interesting and fantastic.
We knew a lot about such things as polymers, dye lasers and we saw how modern scientific research is carried out.
At the excursion we were told about the method of ink-jet printing which includes pendant drop method. I remember a device called LED. It can be of different colors and shapes. I would like to purchase this device.
Also we knew that lasers can be used in medicine, biology, military sphere and space. Students from my group were very fascinated by laboratory equipment.
I hope that we can visit this laboratory again and I would like to participate in research but already as a PhD student.

Recently we have participated in a very interesting scientific tour to laboratories of SPTI.
We were shown that laser’s characteristics may depend on color (basic colors are green, red and UV). For me it was very interesting how electrons are balanced by cathode and anode. I also saw a device for measuring frequency. We put glasses to protect our eyes from the radiation emitted by lasers. I liked it very much and I would like to work there!

For me it was very unusual that liquid lasers do exist and it is true! We were shown that lasers have various advantages and disadvantages. I would like to work at SPTI laboratory.

It was amazing. PhD students showed us how they work with devices, and told us about semiconducting polymers. We saw printer which prints conductive current circuit.
I liked that we talked in English. Thanks to the excursion I learned many terms which will be useful for me in future.

We saw a printer that prints conductive silver paint pattern and lasers which  shine with different colors.

Today we visited the SPTI laboratories which are among the most interesting laboratories operating nowadays. They are Photonics laboratory, laboratory of organic electronics and laboratory of functional electronics. The first lab is developing superpower lasers, and it is one of the best laboratories in the world. The second laboratory deals with organics, mostly with organic light emitting diodes. The third lab studies the properties of liquids, developing new printed circuits.
I am proud that these laboratories are cooperating with TSU.

All our group was divided into two parts. My group was the first to go to the chemical laboratory. There we learned about the technology which is related to research of organic substances and matters. Laboratory assistances described us the structure of the laboratory while we were looking at the equipment around us.
The second laboratory studies liquid physical properties. There we got acquainted with three equipments. The first unit is a viscosity meter. It is not a very big gage inside which you pour any liquid and let the computer measure viscosity properties of that substance. The second gage is a surface tension meter. It analyses how some drop is increasing in scale and the data come to computer where it is being calculated to get a final model of the drop. It is so interesting! This research is made to find out the best organic liquid for the ink-jet printing.
The best lab which we visited was the one dealing with laser technology. Lab workers investigate lasers, which work with solid-state organic material. This field of laser physics is not completely investigated. This lab has a world-wide recognition and has only few competitors. The supervisor of the laboratory told a lot of interesting stories about laser technologies in Soviet times and now, and invited us to study in his lab on the 3-d or 4-th course. It was great!

We were shown three laboratories: 1) laboratory of organic electronics, 2) laboratory of functional electronics and 3) laboratory of nanoelectronics and nanophotonics.
Laboratory of organic electronics is engaged in research of “ink” on the basis of organic semiconductors designed for printers, computer displays and other products of digital electronics. This technology will lead to the production in Russia of its cheap electronics outlets. For example, screens for mobile phones, electronic paper.  This year, the laboratory received for analysis a viscometer for viscosity liquids measuring.
Lab for functional electronics is famous for its developments in the creation of highly sensitive sensors based on gallium arsenide. They create sensors for Large Hardon Collider.
Nanoelectronics and nanophotonics laboratory develops semiconductor nanostructures for optoelectronic devices. For example they are constructing devices for high-power lasers, optical methods, analyze the environment and power of solar panels.
I had the opportunity to talk to people who create the technologies of the future!
