Scientists from the Military University of Technology have developed goggles and glasses that protect the eyes against blinding by lasers. Prepared for soldiers, they can also be useful for pilots and train drivers. Scientists have also created viewfinders and periscopes to protect optoelectronic equipment from light damage.
Light and easy to assemble and disassemble quickly, with combined features of a scooter and a monowheel, and above all, running on batteries that can be replaced at a city charging station: The electric micro-vehicle LEONARDO is being developed under a Horizon 2020-funded project.
Researchers from the Łódż and Lublin Universities of Technology will use the British Diamond Light Source synchrotron to conduct research that is important for the stability of structures with thin-walled composite columns. This technology is used, for example, in airplanes and helicopters, in the automotive industry and wind turbines.
