New Certificates of Fortinet Wireless Specialist for our students
On June 10, 2019, at the Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Informatics, we hosted Mr. Szymon Polinski (Fortinet Systems Engineer). During classes of Wireless Networks conducted by Dr. Mariusz Piwiński he carried out laboratories and the Fortinet Wireless Specialist certification exam for students taking part in the course. After successfully passing the exam confirming their skills in the configuration and management of wireless networks, this certificate was awarded to: Mateusz Ciesielski, Dawid Gruszczyński, Magdalena Reiwer and Hanna Szramowska. Congratulations!
14th School on Acousto-Optics and Applications
The 14th School on Acousto-Optics and Applications will be held on June 24-27, 2019 in Toruń, Poland. The tradition of the Schools dates back to 1980’s when the international meetings were organized by the Institute of Experimental Physics of the University of Gdańsk in different places in Pomeranian region (Jurata, Wieżyca, Gdańsk, Sopot) and abroad (Druskininkai, Lithuania – 2014; Moscow, Russia - 2017). This time the conference will be hosted by the Institute of Physics of the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń – a place known from its original Gothic architecture and a hometown of the astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus.
Cisco Networking Academy Expert Level Instructor Award
Dr Mariusz Piwiński has been rewarded the Cisco Networking Academy Expert Level Instructor Award for the fifth time. This prize is awarded annually to approximately 10 percent of the best Cisco Network Academy instructors in the world. (link https://www.netacad.com/group/program/recognition/instructor-excellence).
OPUS grant for dr hab. Jolanta Domysławska
The National Science Center announced the results of the OPUS 15 call. The research project entitled Cavity ring-down spectroscopy for oxygen molecules in the spectral range of 1,27 um will receive funding of nearly 1 224 thousand PLN. The project by dr hab. Jolanta Domysławska will be realized at the Institute of Physics, Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń.
Dr Agata Cygan is a laureate of the Pieńkowski’s award
Dr Agata Cygan from the Institute of Physics of the Nicolaus Copernicus University received this year's Professor Stefan Pieńkowski's scientific award. The award was given for the development of a new method of frequency spectroscopy in the optical cavity, guaranteeing accuracy unattainable so far by any other technique.
POLONIUM research grant
Research project of dr. Piotr Wcisło entitled ``Ab initio calculations for molecular collisions at low temperatures -long-standing spectroscopic puzzle and planetary/astrophysical applications” among 21 awarded projects by the NAWA funding agency.
Our student qualified to the final stage of the Golden Chemistry Medal award
Hubert Jóźwiak has been qualified to the final stage of the Golden Chemistry Medal award (zlotymedalchemii.pl). Each of the 15 finalists (carefully chosen by 11 referees) will try to convince the jury that his work deserves to be awarded.
Prestigious grant for Akiko Nishiyama
Dr Akiko Nishiyama, employee of Institute of Physics, has received a grant from Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) for a project “Broadband and highly sensitive spectroscopy of free-radicals and short-lived molecules using an infrared frequency comb”. The aim of the Project is to reveal some chemical reaction processes using advanced broadband frequency comb spectroscopy techniques. The research will provide valuable information about formation processes of interstellar molecules which is important in astronomical and prebiotic chemistries.
The best student on the campus
Our student, Hubert Jóźwiak has been announced by the NCU senate as the Best Graduate Student of the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun in 2017/2018. He studied physics at the Department of Physics, Astronomy, and Applied Informatics with a final grade 4.93 out of 5.00.
