In response to the request of Vice-rector, Prof. Bogumiła Kaniewska, as a part of Adam Mickiewicz University’ initiative "Visible hand - AMU”, the NanoBioMedical Centre AMU provided personal protection equipment and disinfectants for the Departments of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care and Orthopedics and Traumatology of the Provincial Hospital in Poznań, Juraszów 7-19
In the 20th anniversary of the Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński University in Warsaw, on December 9, Prof. dr hab. Stefan Jurga was honored with the "Towards a Man" statuette in thanks for the services to the Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński University. The title of the statuette refers to the commemorative book, which the community of the Academy of Catholic Theology gave to Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński on the 25th anniversary of his episcopal ordination.
The possibility of affecting the magnetic properties of a material by dielectric means, and vice versa, remains an attractive perspective for modern electronics and spintronics. Here, we report on epitaxial Bi(Fe0.5Mn0.5)O3 thin films with exceptionally low Gilbert damping and magnetoelectric coupling above room temperature (<400 K). The ferromagnetic order, not observed in bulk, has been detected with a total magnetization of 0.44 μB/formula units with low Gilbert damping parameter (0.0034), both at room temperature. Additionally, a previously overlooked check-board ordering of oxygen vacancies is observed, providing insights on the magnetic and dielectric origin of the multifunctional properties of the films. Finally, intrinsic magnetodielectric behavior is observed as revealed by the variation of dielectric permittivity well above room temperature. These findings show the possibility of electric-field-controlled magnetic properties, in low Gilbert-damping-based spintronic devices, using single-phase multiferroic materials.
We regret very much to inform you that the 11th international conference NanoTech Poland 2020, Poznań, June 3rd - 7th, due to the escalation of COVID-19 coronavirus in Poland and worldwide, is canceled.
The scholarship is offered for a candidate with MSc in physics, chemistry or related fields. The candidate will join the project "Cubosomes - liquid crystalline nanoparticles as potential system for bioimaging”.
This Special Issue is related to the NanoTech Poland 2020, the 11th international conference, organized by the NanoBioMedical Centre, Adam Mickiewicz University Poznan, which will be held on 3–6 June 2020 in Poznań.
