Studies of ancient DNA have changed our view of the history of humanity. As such, advanced analysis of separate cells’ genomes will help generate breakthroughs in our understanding of early embryonic human development over the several next years. At the same time, in terms of research of bacterial communities, we still don’t know how to pose the correct questions.

More reliable than a metal detector and safer than X-rays, a Terahertz scanner designed by HSE MIEM researchers allows the detection of items hidden under clothing, such as drugs and explosives, imperceptibly, without walk-through scanners and at a considerable distance. A highly sensitive THz receiver is capable of detecting waves emitted by the human body.

cryptography is an almost perfect method of encrypting sensitive data.
Information sent over quantum cryptography networks cannot be intercepted
without distortion, and any attempt at eavesdropping can be easily detected. However,
the problem with quantum cryptography is that it only works over relatively
short distances. A team of researchers of the HSE Moscow Institute of
Electronics and Mathematics (MIEM) Department of Quantum Optics and
Telecommunications has developed and tested a system capable of increasing the
transmission distance by an order of magnitude.
