Article in “Nature” bringing new insights into the mechanism of nuclear fission
When an over-inflated balloon bursts, its pieces fly away in opposite directions performing various air evolution. The process of nuclear fission, in which a nucleus is split into two parts accompanied by the emission of several neutrons, proceeds similarly. UW scientists have contributed to the research presented in the newly-published article in “Nature”.
Obesity is a risk factor for diseases such as type II diabetes, heart disease and fatty liver disease. An international research team, to which researchers from the UW Faculty of Chemistry belong, identified a new factor that offers a potential new therapeutic strategy for obesity. Their study has now been published in the prestigious journal “Nature Metabolism”.
Tooth structure of an early mammaliform
Dr. Mateusz Tałanda from the UW Faculty of Biology is one of the scientists that conducted research on an early mammaliform displaying tooth anatomy. The description of a new species called Kalaallitkigun jenkinsi has just been published in the prestigious journal “Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America”.
Dr. Thurston C. Hicks as a co-author of the paper in “International Journal of Primatology”
The article entitled “The Relationship Between Tool Use and Prey Availability in Chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes schweinfurthii) of Northern Democratic Republic of Congo” has been published in “International Journal of Primatology” magazine. Its first author is Dr. Thurston C. Hicks from the UW Faculty of "Artes Liberales".
New “Nature Human Behaviour” publication co-authored by the researcher and student from UW
Prof. Michał Bilewicz from the Center for Research on Prejudice at the UW Faculty of Psychology and Olga Kuzawińska, a student of this faculty, are co-authors of the publication, which appeared on 27th January in "Nature Human Behaviour". The work concerns the impact of intergroup contact on support for collective action against discrimination among minorities and majorities.
The UW scientists’ article in „Nature Physics”
Demonstration of fundamentally distinct type of lattice clock is one of the main topics of the research conducted by the international team of scientists. Two of them are the UW Faculty of Chemistry employees. The description of the scientists’ work is presented in the article entitled “Molecular lattice clock with vibrational coherence” that was published in “Nature Physics”.
The UW scientist as a co-author of the paper in “Nature Photonics”
The article entitled “Suppressed Auger scattering and tunable light emission of Landau-quantized massless Kane electrons” was published in “Nature Photonics” magazine. One of its co-authors is Prof. Marek Potemski, a Visiting Professor at the UW Faculty of Physics. The paper introduces new steps in the research connected with the future technology of Landau level lasers.
New materials that can work as superconductors at ambient conditions
