An idea for effective removal of a radioactive element

Published: 24/03/2023

Dr Artur Kasprzak

Removal of radioactive caesium salts from aqueous solutions is crucial from the point of view of human health and natural environment protection. High concentrations of the 137Cs isotope have been found mainly in the post-disaster area of nuclear power plants, but the problem with the disposal of waste containing caesium applies to other areas of the world because caesium is produced in routine organic syntheses, for example, drug synthesis. Nanomaterials containing sumanene may prove to be a solution to these problems.

Researchers are working on the enhanced energy yield of photovoltaic cells

Energy is produced from a relatively small portion of solar radiation hitting the photovoltaic cells. The rest is lost mainly as heat. PW researchers are working on a material with a negative refraction index, which will not only eliminate the cell heating but also will allow us to enhance the energy yield.
