Welcome & News

Dear Guest,

    you have just found yourself on the website dedicated mainly to our research placed between Chemistry, Physics and Materials Science. You may find here some information about us, our latest activities, articles, awards, conferences, software, as well as some materials concerning the following research areas, which are among our scientific interests:

  • Photocrystallography and solid-state structural dynamics

  • Solid-state spectroscopy

  • Chemical and physical crystallography for materials science

  • Accurate crystallography under ambient and extreme conditions

  • Computational chemistry

  • Instrumentation and software development

  • Crystal engineering

    Please feel free to contact us whenever you seek for some more information. We are always happy to answer your questions and to start new interesting collaborations!

More funding opportunities have arisen. The PPRELUDIUM grant has been awarded to Sylwia by the National Science Centre in Poland for the proposal entitled: "NO2-SWITCH: Photocrystallographic studies of new photoswitchable 4th-row transition-metal nitro complexes".

New funding opportunities have arisen. The SONATA grant has been awarded to Radek by the National Science Centre in Poland for the proposal entitled: "MMCT-XRAY: Communication between metallic centres in selected bridged mixed-valence coordination complexes – photocrystallographic studies combined with ultrafast spectroscopy".
