Despite the reproductive synchrony of lynx in Europe, these large predators are able to adapt the timing of birth to different climatic conditions. This was demonstrated in the study by international team of researchers with the participation of Polish scientists.
X-ray laser pulses can be used to study the structure of matter with unprecedented accuracy, but the pulses destroy the sample. Physicists from the Polish-Japanese team believe that with sufficiently short laser pulses, it will be possible to view an undisturbed structure of matter. They have demonstrated that atoms of certain crystal react to an avalanche of photons with a delay.
