A polymer 'love hormone' sensor for the early detection of autism

Is it possible to detect features of autism at birth? At the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, researchers have developed a sensor could make such detection a reality. The main recognition component of the new device is a polymer layer with a carefully designed structure. Show More Summary

A polymer 'love hormone' sensor for the early detection of autism

(Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences) Is it going to be possible to detect features of autism at birth? At the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw a sensor has come into being that means this may become a reality. Show More Summary

Mechanochemistry paves the way to higher quality perovskite photovoltaics

(Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences) For several years, tension has been rising in line with the approaching commercialization of perovskite photovoltaic cells. Now, there has been another small earthquake:...Show More Summary

Evaporation dynamics at the nano- and micro-scale

A new evaporation dynamics study finds that very small droplets evaporate more slowly than predicted by current models. Researchers from the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IPC PAS) in Warsaw, in cooperation...Show More Summary

Small droplets are a surprise: They disappear more slowly than they 'should'

(Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences) Seemingly, we already know everything there is to know about evaporation. However, we've had another surprise: it turns out that small drops are stragglers and they evaporate more slowly than their larger counterparts, according to physicists from the Warsaw Institutes of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

In atomic propellers, quantum phenomena can mimic everyday physics

(Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences) In molecules there are certain groups of atoms that are able to rotate. This movement is not continuous but occurs in jumps. It is generally believed that such jumps are classical, i.e. Show More Summary

The first one-bit chemical memory unit—the 'chit'

In classical computer science, information is stored in bits; in quantum computer science, information is stored in quantum bits, or qubits. Experiments at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw prove that chemistry is also a suitable basis for storing information. Show More Summary

With more light, chemistry speeds up

Light initiates many chemical reactions. Experiments at the aser Centre of the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences and the University of Warsaw's Faculty of Physics have, for the first time, demonstrated that by increasing the illumination intensity, some reactions can be significantly accelerated. Show More Summary

The first one bit chemical memory unit: The 'chit'

(Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences) In classical computer science information is stored in bits, in quantum computer science -- in quantum bits, i.e. qubits. Experiments at the Institute of Physical Chemistry...Show More Summary

The new method of analysis in record high speed DNA assay device

(Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences) In medical diagnostics, the importance of genetic code assays is growing day by day and modern molecular biology could not do without it. Current DNA analysis techniques, however, are far from perfect. Show More Summary

The prototype of a chemical computer detects a sphere

(Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences) Chemical computers are becoming ever more of a reality -- this is being proven by scientists from the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw. Show More Summary

Researchers develop surprising technique for ultrashort laser pulses

Pulse lasers built entirely on optical fibers are increasingly used by industry. Optical scientists from the Warsaw Laser Centre of the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences and the Faculty of Physics of the...Show More Summary

Impossible (but working!) recipe for ultrashort laser pulses

(Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences) Pulse lasers built entirely on optical fibers are increasingly readily being used by industry. Optical scientists from the Warsaw Laser Centre of the Institute of Physical...Show More Summary

Hospitals can rapidly identify life-threatening bacteria

(Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences) Soon in virtually every hospital it will be possible to identify the bacterial species responsible for an infection developing in a patient in a matter of just a few minutes. Show More Summary

A 'strand' of DNA as never before

(Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences) In a carefully designed polymer, researchers at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences have imprinted a sequence of a single strand of DNA. Show More Summary

A new type of monitoring provides information about the life of bacteria in microdroplets

(Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences) In the future, it will be possible to carry out tests of new drugs on bacteria much more efficiently using microfluidic devices, since each of the hundreds and thousands of droplets moving through the microchannels can act as separate incubators. Show More Summary

Going against the grain -- nitrogen turns out to be hypersociable!

(Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences) Nitrogen is everywhere: even in the air there is four times as much of it as oxygen. However, it is reluctant to form chemical bonds, especially with more than four atoms. Show More Summary

The road to green hydrogen runs through mazes in algal proteins

(Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences) Hydrogen fuel cells produce electricity, we are increasingly thinking about hydrogen as the successor of crude oil. But where will the hydrogen come from? Its ecologically cleanest source could be industrial -- or even domestic! -- bioreactors with green algae. Show More Summary

Diagnostics of the future: New polymer warns of dangerous kidney disease

(Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences) The advanced phase of acute kidney injury can be fatal in even one in two patients. Fortunately, now it will be possible to detect the disease in its initial stages, when treatment is still relatively simple and the prognosis good. Show More Summary

Sheets like graphene: Tailored chemistry links nanoparticles in stable monolayers

(Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences) Just like carbon atoms in sheets of graphene, nanoparticles can form stable layers with minimal thicknesses of the diameter of a single nanoparticle. A novel methodShow More Summary
