MOSCOW, November 7. /TASS/ Researchers from the Peter the Great Saint Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU), Ioffe Institute of Physics and Technique, and the CRSI Electropribor corporation launched the development of a quantum transducer of rotation, the media center of SPbPU reported.
The main objective for the Saint Petersburg scientists is to create a novel quantum transducer of rotation which should be both compact and precise.
"Quantum transducers of rotation are needed to define the location of an object in space. They are broadly applied in modern navigation, satellite, and telecommunication systems in order to increase the efficiency of capturing and transmitting information at long distances. Moreover, the transducers are used in control panels as they can alter the trajectory of objects. The key feature of our innovation is combining compact size and high precision," said Alexey Lukashin, one of the project’s participants.
During the course of work in the future, the SPbPU’s supercomputers will be intensively utilized. "Calculations might take several months, but by using the supercomputer we would be able to accomplish the work much faster," Lukashin emphasized.
The transducer is being developed as a part of the Federal Target Program devoted to applied scientific research and experimental developments in priority areas of science, technology, and engineering in the Russian Federation. In 2018, the new transducer should be completed and released for production.
