Graphene is the buzzword in science and industry these days. This indestructible two-dimensional carbon-based “supermaterial” won this year’s Nobel Prize in Physics for Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, two Russian-born professors from the University of Manchester in England. For industry, graphene holds out a promise of an exciting revolution in electronics—despite the fact that, for now, a square centimeter of this material costs hundreds of millions of zlotys. Polish engineer Włodzimierz Strupiński, Ph.D., is a close associate of the Nobel Prize-winning professors. He has been engrossed in graphene research for several years, work of which he is proud and for which he is seeking patent protection around the world.
Prof. John Ockendon, from the Oxford Centre for Collaborative Applied Mathematics, talks to Piotr Bartosz.
A one-week research workshop for mathematicians seeking to address issues important to business and industry was held in Warsaw in September.
Polish scientists have made a considerable contribution to trail-blazing research on graphene that won two Russian-born professors working at the University of Manchester in England the Nobel Prize in Physics this year.
Many Polish researchers secured financial support from the European Union last year as part of the EU’s “People” Program, according to a report by the EU Research Program National Contact Point (KPK) in Warsaw.
The Izera Dark Sky Park, which straddles the Polish-Czech border, is one of Europe’s first “darkness reserves.” The project, launched in 2009 in the Izerskie Mountains, aims to highlight the issue of light pollution, which is increasingly being acknowledged as an environmental problem.
An international group of scientists including researchers from Poland have found a molecule with an unexpectedly complex structure in interstellar clouds of extremely small density. As a result of the discovery, the scientific community will need to revise its idea of chemical processes that occur in seemingly empty areas of the galaxy.
Researchers at the Institute of Mechanized Construction and Rock Mining in Warsaw have designed an innovative impregnating sealer for fixtures made of natural stone for use in construction.
