Quantum dots of zinc oxide produced by a new method involving organometallic precursors are safe for human cells, chemists from Warsaw have shown. The Institute of Physical Chemistry PAS has announced a new method of producing ZnO quantum dots.
Researchers at the Quantum Memory Laboratory at the Faculty of Physics of the University of Warsaw have built a quantum memory capable of storing 665 quantum states of light simultaneously - reported the Faculty of Physics of the University of Warsaw in a release sent to PAP. Researchers used a cloud of laser-cooled atoms to achieve this.
Elementary particles of the "new physics" must be so massive that their detection in the LHC, the largest modern accelerator, will not be possible - this is the conclusion from the analyses of the international GAMBIT project, in which the Institute of Nuclear Physics PAS in Kraków participates.
Most materials are still discovered by trial and error, because it is difficult to predict the right arrangement of atoms. Dr. Michał Tomza from the University of Warsaw proposes to use quantum simulations to understand the properties of materials that are being designed.
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.
