How to capture nonmagnetic particles by means of magnetic fields and why to do this in the first place? Answers to this and other questions were provided by two representatives of CEZAMAT, prof. Romuald Beck, Vice President for Scientific Affairs and prof. Bartosz A. Grzybowski, Chief Scientific Advisor, during a radio show hosted by Rafał Betlejewski at Polish Radio RDC.
The broadcast was held on the occasion of the lecture presented by prof. Grzybowski, a renowned Polish chemist, during the last CEZAMAT seminar. Prof. Grzybowski has graduated from Yale and obtained his Ph.D. degree at Harvard University. Currently, he is a professor and director of the Northwestern University's Non-Equilibrium Energy Research Center. He is the author of more than 200 articles in chemistry, physics and biology, including about 20 articles in Science and Nature journals (total of ca. 9,000 citations).Besides delivering the main lecture topic of manipulations on nonmagnetic objects in magnetic field, prof. Bartosz Grzybowski gave a presentation of the Non-Equilibrium Energy Research Center being one of 37 US-based centres founded by President Barack Obama for the development of new energy technologies. Completing the statement of prof. Beck, who was speaking on the idea behind CEZAMAT and the current challenges for new materials technologies, prof. Grzybowski pointed to the importance of vision in research studies and the great opportunities opening up for Polish Science within the coming 7 years.More information on the planned research projects to be conducted at CEZAMAT and on future research materials is available by listening to the full broadcast: We should pursue directions the West considers impossible.
