OPUS project granted

Prof. Sebastian Maćkowski, prof. Joanna Niedziółka-Jönsson and prof. Wojciech Macyk  obtained a grant from National Science Centre within OPUS 12 programme. The project “Remotely light-controlled activity of dyes, proteins and catalysts: imaging, sensing and energy conversion” is intended to show that the energy of photons illuminating a nanowire can be transported to its other end, and that this energy is capable to activate and deactivate nanostructures, which are important from the point of view of imaging, sensorics or energy conversion.



Professor Wojciech Macyk is the laureate of the prestigious Award of the Minister of Science and Higher Education for outstanding scientific achievements in 2017. The awards ceremony took place on December 11, 2017 in Łazienki Królewskie Park, Warsaw.
The prizes were awarded for outstanding scientific achievements, individual and collective didactic achievements and organizational successes in the past year. During the ceremony, Minister Gowin said: “Looking at the winners, I know that Polish science is getting better and better, and Polish academics have reached the world level.”
