NCN "SONATA BIS" and FNP "Proof of Concept"

We are excited to inform that 2 new research projects were granted to Assoc. Prof. Mikołaj Lewandowski: the National Science Centre of Poland "SONATA BIS" project titled "Charge transfer effects in single-atom catalysts: towards the rational design of industrial catalysts" and the Foundation for Polish Science "Proof of Concept" project titled "Nanostrukturyzowana elektroda do elektrochemicznej syntezy wodoru z wody oparta na 2-wymiarowych wyspach azotku żelaza na miedzi" ("Nanostructured electrode for the electrochemical synthesis of hydrogen from water based on 2-dimensional iron nitride islands on copper").

Structure of ultrathin iron nitride islands on Cu(001) revisited

The group revisited the structure of monolayer iron nitride islands on Cu(001) and discovered a new Fe1.33N phase. The article was published in Vacuum. See:

The group has organized a school on surface science techniques

From 23rd till 26th August 2023, the group was organizing a IUVSTA School on surface science techniques: Surface Science Toolbox 2023. More info:

Development of SARS-CoV-2 Virus-Like Particles

The group developed Virus-Like Particles (VLPs) that mimic the SARS-CoV-2 virus responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic. See:
