Silver fluoride as a new superconductor operating at higher temperature than previously known materials? Scientists, including researchers from the University of Warsaw, propose this solution in an article in PNAS.
The algorithm Comixify for converting video into comics developed at Warsaw University of Technology met with interest around the world. In less than a month, the Comixify website recorded over 180,000 viewers and was used to generate over 22 thousand comics, told PAP Dr. Tomasz Trzciński from Warsaw University of Technology.
Piano wire has a strength of two gigapascals. The chemical bond between carbon atoms in a molecule is 200 times stronger. We have learned to obtain extremely plastic polymers from such macromolecules; we have shown that it is possible to obtain nanofibers stronger than steel, says Prof. Andrzej Gałęski, laureate of the 2018 FNP Prize.
Electrostatic interactions can cause micro-objects in the liquid to start to form stable pairs, show theoretical analyses carried out at the Institute of Fundamental Technological Research PAS. If this new phenomenon can be confirmed in experiments, it may be useful, for example, in water purification or drug production.
The colour of the cloudless sky can correspond to low tones, strawberries to high tones, and snow can sound like the sea. Colorophone, a device that turns a colour into a specific sound, is designed to work with glasses that a blind person would wear, for example during a walk.
A device that monitors selected emotions, such as fear and the level of relaxation and stress with 99% accuracy has been developed for the European Space Agency (ESA) by Polish companies. It may be useful to astronauts, but also to uniformed services and sportsmen.
