It is extremely durable, it combines the best properties of metals and ceramics and can fly into space. Scientists from Łukasiewicz - Poznań Institute of Technology have just developed a new, cheaper and faster method of producing the so-called MAX phase material.
‘During my research, I saw that the services were interested in cracking solutions developed thanks to quantum cryptography. This is because if these solutions fall into the hands of terrorists, monitoring them will become impossible,’ says Professor Artur Ekert, co-founder of quantum cryptography.
Despite the recent sensational reports of Korean scientists, we might have to wait a long time for the superconducting revolution. It might also never come. On the other hand, the technology development may surprise us. Research on superconductors is highly unpredictable, says Professor Jan Martinek from the Institute of Molecular Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
The development of next generation implantation biomaterials is the goal of research conducted by scientists from Poland and Austria. As a result, surgical implants will be more durable and of better quality, and this will translate into less frequent removal or revision.
Poland's first device for the synthesis of artificial fuels is being built at the Warsaw University of Technology. Gas produced from CO2 and water can be further transformed into fuels not contaminated by sulphur compounds, nitrogen oxides or particulate matter, i.e. those that can be used after 2035.
