The young resarcher of MTA Wigner RCP, Renáta Ünnep was awarded for studying the ultrastructure and flexibility of photosynthetic membrane systems in different photosynthetic organisms (cyanobacteria, green algae and higher plants). She identified with her collaborating partners previously unknown membrane reorganizations associated with light adaptation and photoprotection of oxygenic photosynthetic organisms.
Three-atomic-layer-thick Fe films on Ir(111). The layers were heated from about 8K to about room temperature. The experiments reveal a significant increase of the magnetic period of spin spirals from about 4 nm at 8 K to about 65 nm at room temperature.
Hungarians and Wigner RCP reaserchers are participating in the developing of Next Generation Driver for Attosecond and Laser-plasma Physics. The team is led by the Max-Planck-Institute for Quantum Optics in München.
The High Energy Physics Conference of the European Physical Society was held in Venezia between 7-12 July 2017. The venue of the Conference is the world famous white building of the Palazzo del Cinema on Lido Island. The 2017 Gribov Medal (established by the Eötvös Loránd Physical Society in 2001 for the EPSHEP 2001) was also awarded for outstanding work of a young physicist in Theoretical Particle Physics and/or Field Theory.
We all feel that science filters publications more carefully than social media does. The rigorous pier review makes us to believe this. Citation of scientific publications is many times considered a proxy for measuring the impact of a work and for deciding its scientific value.
