Students at the Faculty of Physics of the University of Warsaw and researchers from the QOT Centre for Quantum Optical Technologies have developed an innovative method that allows the fractional Fourier Transform of optical pulses to be performed using quantum memory.
Scientists from the Wrocław University of Science and Technology have developed a technology for generating white laser light based on just two organic dyes. The material is useful in environmentally friendly, biomedical and diagnostic applications, for example in optoelectronics.
ARIEL, the next-gen mission of the European Space Agency (ESA), has successfully passed the Preliminary Design Review. The launch of the mission, which aims to observe the chemical composition of distant extrasolar planets, is scheduled for 2029. The Space Research Centre of the Polish Academy of Sciences is preparing one of the key instruments of the telescope.
Green, high-performance, hypergolic (capable of self-ignition when mixed) propellants have been the Holy Grail of space propulsion for decades. In recent months, engineers and scientists from Łukasiewicz - Institute of Aviation have successfully completed a number of tests leading to solving this challenge, the representatives of the institute report.
What values will the air temperature reach in a heated car and what body temperature will a person locked in it have? It is possible to estimate these values with the calculator created by Łukasz Białek, MD, and Dr. Dominik Czernia from the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
The risk of injury to the driver's chest is greatest during a front-to-side motorcar collision; the head is not so exposed to injuries, a doctoral candidate from the Military University of Technology determined after conducting about 400 virtual simulations of such an accident.
Sometimes an error in an algorithm reveals itself quickly, and sometimes it takes a very long time. The question is how to find the range in which the program can fail. A team with Polish computer scientists was awarded for solving this problem for the VASS model.
Technologies originally created for use in space have found applications on Earth many times. According to Wiktoria Dziaduła from the Silesian University of Technology, architecture should also follow this direction, especially in the context of self-sufficiency and ecology of the entire life cycle of buildings.
