Research on rhenium 186m isotope, which could prove to be a useful energy storage in the future, has been launched at the National Centre for Nuclear Research in Świerk. The research project will be financed with a grant from the US Army Research Laboratory (ARL).
Researchers from the Institute of Physical Chemistry PAS in Warsaw have removed the main obstacle in the development of SERS - an extremely sensitive laboratory method of chemical composition analysis. Researchers have developed new substrates, onto which samples for analysis are applied.
To crack the nucleus of an atom, you must do what you do when cracking a nut - hit it with something. If you deliver enough energy, the forces binding the components of the nucleus will no longer be sufficient to keep it together, says particle physicist Prof. Grzegorz Wrochna.
A new method of separation of dextrorotatory and levorotary chiral molecules (molecules that are mirror images of each other) has been developed by an international group of scientists, including researchers from the Institute of Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences. The results of their research have been published in Science.
