Innovative cooling clothing and underwear, designed to protect mine rescuers against fire, static electricity and overheating of the body, have been developed by a Polish consortium, led by the Central Institute for Labour Protection - National Research Institute.
Earthquake alert centre in California creates computational risk and threat models in tens of thousands of geophysical grid points. To examine all possible earth movements along the San Andreas fault, millions of calculations are needed for each of these points. These calculations are carried out by virtual machines in so-called clouds. Polish researchers are involved in the work on the optimal use of clouds in science.
Chemical computers are becoming ever more of a reality - this is being proven by scientists from the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw. It turns out that after an appropriate teaching procedure even a relatively simple chemical system can perform non-trivial operations. In their most recent computer simulations researchers have shown that correctly programmed chemical matrices of oscillating droplets can recognize the shape of a sphere with great accurac
The number of patents granted to Polish companies and scientific institutes by the European Patent Office increased by 19 percent in 2016. At the same time the number of patent applications decreased by nearly 28 percent - according to the European Patent Office report.
Scientists will prepare a virtual reconstruction of the village Zabrost Wielki (Gross Sobrost) from 1917, located in the Warmia-Mazury province. This is the first project in Poland, in which such a broad spectrum of laser documentation technologies will be used - project initiators say.
Production of biofuels, cosmetics, drugs - for all of this you can use algae, organisms mostly autotrophic, aquatic and full of nutrients. Warsaw University of Technology students have built equipment for culturing them. The installation testing has just begun.
BlinkMouse application that allows completely paralysed people to fully use their computers has been developed at Rzeszow University of Technology. The app replaces computer mouse, and it is used simply by bl.inking - thanks to a webcam placed in front of the user's face.
Warsaw optical scientists experts have generated ultra-short pulses of high-energy in optical fiber, using the method, which was considered impossible to perform. The solution proved to be not only useful, but also surprisingly simple!
Scientists have found a new way to remove oil leaking into the seas or oceans. They want it to be collected by the Mosquito Oil, which will land on the water and, like a giant mosquito, suck impurities into the tank that adjusts its size to the amount of absorbed liquid.
Advanced Virgo detector - which will contribute to achieving better results in the study of gravitational waves - has been modernized. Upgrades, in which Polish scientists participated, were completed last week on Monday in Pisa, Italy.
