How nocturnal light impacts wild animals

How nocturnal light impacts wild animals

05.09.2022
Biological rhythms have an enormous impact on the biochemistry, cell biology, physiology and behaviour of all living organisms. These mechanisms are particularly conspicuous in birds. Unfortunately, the rising human pressure, especially the light pollution, largely distorts the environmental cues regulating the animals’ internal biological clocks. Dr Joanna Sudyka from the JU Institute of Environmental Sciences has been studying the consequences of this phenomenon.

SOLARIS research findings published in Physical Review B

SOLARIS research findings published in Physical Review B

11.08.2022
A team of physicists from the Institute of Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences and the SOLARIS National Synchrotron Radiation Centre of the Jagiellonian University have observed a topological Lifshitz transition in the Weyl semimetal NbP by decorating its surface with heavy elements (Pb or Nb). Weyl points in the bulk and Fermi arcs on the surface of Weyl semimetals are of great interest to material physicists and technology specialists.
