BASF to expand mobile emissions catalysts site in Poland

Additional capacity strategically focused on Europe

13-Dec-2017

BASF invests in the expansion of its mobile emissions catalysts production site in Ṥroda Ṥląska, Poland. The expansion includes new production lines and additional infrastructure to equip light duty diesel and gasoline vehicles with BASF’s innovative catalyst and filter solutions. The investment ...

The most exotic fluid has an unexpectedly low viscosity

01-Nov-2017

Collisions of lead nuclei in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) particle accelerator take place at such great energies that quarks that are normally confined inside nucleons are released and, together with the gluons that hold them together, form a stream of particularly exotic fluid: quark-gluon ...

Semiliquid chains pulled out of a sea of microparticles

25-Jul-2017

An electrode brought to the surface of a liquid that contains microparticles can be used to pull out surprisingly long chains of particles. Curiously enough, the particles in the chains are held together by a thin layer of liquid that covers them. This spectacular phenomenon, discovered with the ...

The first light atomic nucleus with a second face

25-Jul-2017

To some degree of approximation, atomic nuclei look like spheres which in most cases are distorted to a greater or lesser extent. When the nucleus is excited, its shape may change, but only for an extremely brief moment, after which it returns to its original state. A relatively permanent 'second ...

In atomic propellers, quantum phenomena can mimic everyday physics

01-Jun-2017

In molecules there are certain groups of atoms that are able to rotate. This movement occurs under the influence of random stimuli from the environment and is not continuous but occurs in jumps. It is generally believed that such jumps occur in a manner that is typical of classical objects, such ...

'Fire-streaks' are created in collisions of atomic nuclei

16-May-2017

At very high energies, the collision of massive atomic nuclei in an accelerator generates hundreds or even thousands of particles that undergo numerous interactions. At the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Cracow, Poland it has been shown that the course of this ...

With more light, chemistry speeds up

08-May-2017

Light initiates many chemical reactions. Experiments at the Laser 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 increasing the intensity of illumination some reactions can ...

First trace of differences between matter and 'ordinary' antimatter

24-Feb-2017

The world around us is mainly constructed of baryons, particles composed of three quarks. Why are there no antibaryons, since just after the Big Bang, matter and antimatter came into being in exactly the same amounts? A lot points to the fact that after many decades of research, physicists are ...

Large groups of photons on demand

An equivalent of photonic 'integrated circuit'

10-Feb-2017

Holographic atomic memory, invented and constructed by physicists from the Faculty of Physics at the University of Warsaw, is the first device able to generate single photons on demand in groups of several dozen or more. The device, successfully demonstrated in practice, overcomes one of the ...

Expanding when it shouldn't

New material with exceptional negative compressibility

09-Sep-2016

Our intuition tells us that a sample of material compressed uniformly from all sides should reduce its dimensions. Only a few materials subjected to hydrostatic compression exhibit the opposite behaviour, expanding slightly in one or two directions. At the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the ...
