Physicists from the University of Gdańsk are working on new theoretical mechanisms that will allow to better characterize multi-particle systems. This will increase the accuracy of physical measurements, and in the future may help build quantum computers.
It would seem that we know all there is to know about evaporation. Meanwhile, there\'s another surprise: small droplets turn out to be marauders and evaporate more slowly than their larger counterparts, physicists from the Warsaw institutes of the Polish Academy of Sciences found.
Electrons in graphene carry not only electric charge and information about spin, but also information about the so-called pseudospin. Research of the last of these properties will enable the development of a completely new branch of technology - valleytronics (analogous to electronics and spintronics).
When the nucleus of the atom is excited, its shape can change for a very short period of time. Until now, this phenomenon has been observed in the most massive elements. Finally, however, the researchers - including Polish scientists - managed to observe the "second face" of a light nucleus.
