Anna Mandziak, currently researcher at the Polish Solaris synchrotron, has won the 3rd prize to the best PhD thesis using synchrotron radiation awarded by the AUSE.

The proposed reactions for efficient sulfur particles formation may help to understand the long sought-after identity of the enigmatic ultraviolet absorber on the atmosphere of Venus.

Magnetite shows the famous Verwey phase transition at 120 K, the first reported metal-insulator transition (in the 1940s). But what happens in nanostructures? We analyze highly perfect magnetite crystals with heights of nm’s.

We identify substrate steps as the origin of the pinning of magnetic domain walls in highly perfect epitaxial microislands. This explains the poor magnetic properties often shown by thin films and nanostructures.

This review article discusses the impact of AlphaFold2 and how this machine learning program can work together with NMR spectroscopy to advance protein structural biology.
