Some isomeric states of superheavy elements may have half-lives measured in seconds, tens of thousands of times longer than the half-lives of their very unstable ground states. If such exotic nuclear states are experimentally produced, they will be stable enough to study their chemical properties.
Super-fast and extremely powerful lasers manufactured by a Polish company are used for cutting diamonds, watching chemical reactions, and for eye correction surgery. These lasers use the solutions awarded this year`s Nobel Prize in physics.
Refusing mandatory vaccination of children may result from an automatic, intuitive information processing mode. And I am urging people to switch to a "manual" way of thinking about medical issues, says the winner of prestigious ERC grant, Dr. Tomasz Żuradzki.
