This is the first successful surgery of this type in Europe and probably in the world, the university representatives say.
We do not have to look for dark matter here and now, for example in particle detectors. Traces of interaction of dark matter with ordinary matter can survive in millions of years old geological samples. You just need to know how to look for them, researchers including a Polish scientist suggest.
Is it possible to detect cancer and determine its malignancy degree in a few minutes or even seconds? It turns out that it is. This is possible with innovative diagnostic tools: Raman optical biopsy and virtual histopathology, developed in the Laboratory of Laser Molecular Spectroscopy (LLSM) of the Lodz University of Technology.
During the press conference at the Institute of Electronic Materials Technology in Warsaw, representatives of the institute spoke about the commercialisation potential of "Polish graphene". "We are a leading Polish organisation that specializes in graphene production techniques" said ITME director Dr. Zbigniew Matyjas.
Researchers discovered a flint workshop of Neanderthals in Pietraszyno (Silesia). According to scientists, it is the first such large workshop in Central Europe that was not located in a cave. So far, researchers have counted 17,000 stone products created 60 thousand years ago.
