On October 20-25, a "hydrogen town" was created in the largest cities of Greater Poland Voivodeship (Konin, Kalisz, Ostrów Wielkopolski, Leszno, Piła, Poznań), as an initiative of the Self-Government of the Greater Poland region to popularize hydrogen matter and promote current hydrogen solutions and technologies. The event was actively attended by representatives of IMP PAS (Dr. hab. Adam Rachocki, Assoc. Prof. - Deputy Director for Scientific Affairs, Dr. Eng. Łukasz Lindner, Dr. Eng. Paweł Ławniczak, and M. Sc. Eng. Mateusz Wachowiak).
On behalf of the Foundation for the Promotion of Science and Development TYGIEL we invite participation in the following events:
- OZE – Energy of the future, November 17, 2022 (online)
- Interdisciplinarity as a key to development, March 23-26, 2023 (hybrid)
The conferences were held under the honorary patronage by the Institute of Molecular Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences. We wish everyone interested in participating in these events, in particular younger entrants of science or development, fruitful meetings and inspiring scientific discussions.
This year's Nobel Prize winners in Physics are Alain Aspect, John F. Clauser and Anton Zeilinger for pioneering research into the entangled quantum states underlying quantum computing. The work of the winners was used, among others, for building quantum computers, performing quantum teleportation, or in quantum cryptographic methods.
After a difficult pandemic time, this year's Researchers' Night has exceeded all expectations.
We would like to thank the organizers of the Researchers' Night at IMP PAS and everyone who was involved in the presentation of laboratories, shows, workshops, and preparation of film materials, as well as volunteers and persons facilitating the course of the event. Thanks to all for their efforts, time and sacrifice they made.
On September 17-22, 2022, a delegation from the Greater Poland Voivodeship headed by Marshal Marek Woźniak took part in a study trip to California. The study visit contributed to the wider promotion of the regional brand of "H2GreaterPoland - hydrogen direction". The trip agenda scheduled participation in the "RE+ 2022" trade fair, a visit to the Tesla Fremont Factory, and numerous meetings, incl. discussions with businessmen, the Polish Community Abroad or the Polish Consul in Los Angeles. During the stay, activities and projects based on low-emission technologies, incl. the use of hydrogen, were discussed and promoted.
The International Symposium on Dielectric Materials and Applications (ISyDMA'7) will be held on December 6-8, 2022. This year's conference, as the seventh meeting in the series, is organized online by the Institute of Molecular Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in cooperation with Adam Mickiewicz University (Faculty of Physics) in Poznań and its Foundation. We cordially invite young scientists in particular, to participate in the conference and inspiring lectures presented by recognized scientists from the international scientific community.
We highly encourage you to visit the official website of the conference.
On July 20-22, 2022, a delegation of the Greater Poland Voivodeship, chaired by Jacek Bogusławski who is the Board Member of the Greater Poland Voivodeship and chairman of the Hydrogen Platform in the region, took part in an information and promotion trip to Bangkok within the trade fair of "Future Energy Asia 2022" that is one of the largest events devoted to energy transformation in Asia. Our employee Dr. Łukasz Lindner was included among the honorable group of the delegates. The purpose of the trip was to promote the regional brand of "H2GreaterPoland - hydrogen direction" by presenting to foreign partners the elements of the economic promotion system, including the activities of the region's local government, as well as representatives of territorial self-government and scientific units from Greater Poland Voivodeship, which develop and promote the low-emission economy ecosystem in the region.
The article "Magnetic damping in ferromagnetic/heavy-metal systems: The role of interfaces and the relation to proximity-induced magnetism", co-authored by the employees of the Department of Thin Films, published in Physical Review B, was highlighted on The Advanced Photon Source (APS) website U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science User Facility. The text promoting this article will be published in "APS Highlights Books".
Lecturers of "Physics Worth Poznań" on April 27 this year visited St. Urszula Ledóchowska Primary School No. 1 in Poznań. The lectures "We are changing the world for the better - how to take care of the climate and the environment", "Renewable energy sources" with the accompanying demonstrations were prepared and conducted by dr hab. Iwona Olejniczak, dr inż. Bolesław Barszcz and dr inż. Paweł Ławniczak. They enjoyed great popularity among students of the oldest classes of this School.
We invite you to watch a short photo report.
We are happy to announce that dr hab. Tomasz Toliński, professor of the IMP PAS, by the decision of the President of the Republic of Poland, was awarded the title of professor.
We would like to congratulate Professor Tomasz Toliński and wish him many further scientific successes!
MSc. Eng. Sylwia Zięba has been awarded the START 2022 scholarship of the Foundation for Polish Science.
Annual START fellowships are awarded to outstanding young scientists at the beginning of their scientific career with confirmed scientific achievements. The aim of the START program is to highlight the most gifted young scientists and encourage them to further development by allowing them to fully devote to scientific research.
Congratulations to our laureate!

Dr. Łukasz Lindner became an expert of the "Climate Leadership" program organized by the UNEP/GRID-Warsaw Center, which carries out the mission of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) for sustainable development.
Climate Leadership is a program for the development of a community of leaders of real change in business to counteract irreversible environmental changes resulting in the climate crisis. The program supports activities undertaken by companies to achieve climate neutrality.
The National Science Center awarded Prof. IFM PAN dr hab. Eng. Michał Bielejewski, funds in the amount of PLN 468,300 for the research project PRELUDIUM BIS 3 "Ionic supramolecular systems as solid electrolytes: from design to applications in lithium-ion materials".
Congratulations to the Professor and good luck in the implementation of this project!
On October 14, 2021, the ceremony of signing the "Sectoral Agreement for the Development of the Hydrogen Economy" took place at the Regent Hotel in Warsaw. The initiators of the Agreement, which was joined by 138 representatives of public administration, business, industry and science, are the Minister of Climate and Environment Michał Kurtyka and the Government Plenipotentiary for Renewable Energy Sources and Secretary of State in the Ministry of Climate and Environment Irenusz Zyska.
On behalf of the Institute of Molecular Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences, the Agreement was signed by Director Zbigniew Trybuła.
The Sectoral Agreement is a joint initiative of public administration - government and local government, representatives of business, science and industry for the construction and development of a low-emission hydrogen economy in Poland in order to ensure climate neutrality and increase the competitiveness of Polish entrepreneurs. The Sectoral Agreement for the development of the hydrogen economy in Poland will be a key implementing instrument for the Polish Hydrogen Strategy until 2030 with a perspective until year 2040.
