On 3rd of November 2022 Jie Yang defended her Ph.D. thesis entitled “Systematic study of exotic nuclear shape symmetries and isomers, including shape evolution and competition in heavy and super-heavy nuclei". The dissertation has been prepared under the supervision of prof. J. Dudek. The reviewers: prof. M. Kowal, P. Bednarczyk and K. Starosta.
On 14th of October 2022 Bartłomiej Baran defended his Ph.D. thesis entitled "Dynamical properties of superconducting nanostructures". The dissertation has been prepared under the supervision of prof. T. Domański. The reviewers: prof. . Bogdan Bułka, prof. Maciej Maśka and prof. Piotr Magierski.
The XX edition of the National Conference on Superconductivity was held in Lublin on May 22-26, 2022 and was organized by the researchers of the Department of Theoretical Physics of UMCS. This year's meeting focused mainly on the subject of "New phases, concepts and applications". The event was attended by specialists from research institutes from all over Poland. Speeches and discussions touched upon important problems of contemporary research on superconductivity:
- high-temperature superconductors and other highly correlated systems,
- synergy of magnetism with superconductivity in hybrid structures,
- critical phenomena in superconductors and superconductors,
- exotic quasiparticles of topological states of matter,
- dynamic effects in superconducting structures,
- applications of conventional and exotic superconductors …

Anna Zdeb received a grant from National Science Centre in the program POLONEZ BIS. She will work on the project "Role of pairing correlations in spontaneous fission process of atomic nuclei". Congratulations!
Szczepan Głodzik is awarded a scholarship from FNP (Foundation for Polish Science) in the START 2022 competition for young scientists. Congratulations!
The 20th National Conference on Superconductivity will take place in Lublin from 22nd - 26th May. We are planning on a fully in person event, according to all necessary sanitary conditions. Registration, and abstract submissions for contributed talks and posters, are both already open! There will also be the opportunity to publish presentations in conference proceedings - more details will follow.
Minister of Science and Education awarded Szczepan Głodzik with the award for significant achievements in the field of scientific activity.
