CERN Courier covers JU physicists’ research

04.08.2020
The existence of dark matter is one of the greatest mysteries faced by modern science. Although there are many premises which suggest the existence of dark matter particles, like the anomalies in movement of galaxy clusters, gravitational microlensing in apparently empty space, and analyses of cosmic microwave background, scientists have yet to perform a direct observation of these particles.

Space weather and its effects on Earth

04.08.2020
Space weather on Earth is chiefly influenced by magnetic storms and emissions of energy particles, in both cases caused by enhanced fluxes of protons and ions. these accelerated plasmas are called solar energetic particles (SEPs). They can be caused by two phenomena: impulsive SEP events caused by magnetic reconnection manifested as solar flares and gradual SEP events accelerated by strong shocks associated with coronal mass ejections (CMEs).

JU authorities announce their decisions regarding the upcoming academic year

04.08.2020
Two months before the beginning of the 2020/2021 academic year, Jagiellonian University authorities have announced their plans for teaching activities in the winter semester. Each Faculty will be able to independently decide on the specifics of organising classes for students. As for PhD candidates, all courses will be conducted on-line, with a few special exceptions.

Unique date palm once again available for viewing in Kraków

04.08.2020
Part of the modernised Victoria greenhouse complex located in the Jagiellonian University Botanical Garden will once again be open for visitors. The structure, which houses a unique 150-year-old date palm that has been declared a natural monument, was to be officially opened in spring after the completion of renovations; however, the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak forced a change of plans.

To mow or not to mow?

31.07.2020
The problem of climate change is no longer limited to complex scientific models and researchers’ predictions. It is reflected in a number of phenomena which are beginning to have significant impact on our everyday lives. We are facing such dangers as the creeping loss of biodiversity in our immediate environment or the catastrophic draughts caused by rising air temperatures and changes in rainfall patterns. These threats are global, but countermeasures against them can also be undertaken locally. Can changing the approach towards mowing lawns help the environment, and, if so, is it a feasible solution? Dr Joanna Kajzer-Bonk and Dr Justyna Kierat from the JU Faculty of Biology shed more light on this issue.

Phelix beamline to be soon opened at the JU synchrotron

28.07.2020
In late July 2020 the last components of the Phelix end station were delivered to the SOLARIS Synchrotron Radiation Centre in Kraków. The delivery included a high-resolution hemispherical photoelectron energy analyser and a VLEED spin detector. The state-of-the-art equipment will become available to scientists next year.
