Researchers from the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences and Charles University have just published in Nature Electronics their new experiment in which they succeeded to write information into an antiferromagnet by femtosecond-laser pulses.
It is with profound sorrow that I inform you of the passing of our highly respected and beloved colleague, Antonio Lucianetti, after a short and insidious illness. He left this world calmly on November 19, 2020, in Bergamo at the age of 55.
The “red giants” are an interesting type of huge and bright stars for astronomers. They are considered old even from the cosmic perspective as they have been evolving over a long period of time. Surprisingly, there is only a few of them in the region near the centre of our Galaxy, where an increased presence of younger stars has been revealed instead. A study, proposing a process to explain this anomaly, co-authored by the researchers from the Czech Academy of Sciences, has been published by The Astrophysical Journal.
This year’s Rudolf Lukeš Prize awarded by the Czech Chemical Society goes to physicist Pavel Jelínek
An international independent committee has awarded the Rudolf Lukeš Prize for 2020 to Pavel Jelínek for his research of chemical properties of molecular structures on solid surfaces. It was the scanning microscopy techniques being developed with the potential to find application in organic chemistry that captured attention of the assessors.
