On 20 th September 2019 Agnieszka Szulerecka defended her PhD thesis on "Group theory analysis of the selected discrete groups of intrinsic symmetries in a quadrupol-octupol collective nuclear model". Prof. Andrzej Góźdź was the supervisor of the thesis. Prof. Michał Kowal from NCBJ, Warsaw and prof. Katarzyna Mazurek from IFJ, Cracow prepared the reviews.

Congratulations for the new doctor in physics!

Prof. Tomasz Paterek from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore with collaborators was awarded Ig Nobla prize from biology for discovering that dead magnetized cockroaches behave differently than living magnetized cockroaches.

Ig Nobel prize is awarded for serious research that has some humorous or extraordinary meaning. It is very well recognized in the academic world. One of Ig Nobel Prize winners was Andre Gleim who get Nobel Prize later.

Honoured paper: Scientific Reports

Prof. Paterek graduated from Maria Curie-Skłodowska University in theoretical physics. His master thesis was prepared under supervision of Prof. Andrzej Góźdź.

Prof.Tadeusz Domański was distinguished with the Scientific Prize of Polish Physical Society for the 2019 year. He was awarded for investigations of topological stability of superconducting phase and Majorana quasiparticles in the magnetic chains and hybrid structures with quantum dots.

The prize was handed during 45. Congress of Polish Physicists.


Next seminar is scheduled on May 21, 2019 at 10.15 a.m., during which dr hab. Katarzyna Roszak (Wrocław University of Science and Technology) will give his talk entitled „ Entanglement and objectivity in pure dephasing models”.

Next seminar is scheduled on May 7, 2019 at 10.15 a.m., during which prof. Paweł Hawrylak (University of Ottawa) will give his talk entitled „Semiconductor and graphene quantum dots: laboratory for correlated electrons”.
