When heat ceases to be a mystery, spintronics becomes more real
(The Henryk Niewodniczanski Institute of Nuclear Physics Polish Academy of Sciences) The development of spintronics depends on materials that guarantee control over the flow of magnetically polarized currents. However, it is hard to talk about control when the details of heat transport through the interfaces between materials are unknown. This " thermal " gap in our material knowledge has just been filled thanks to the Polish-German team of physicists, who for the first time described in detail the dynamic phenomena occurring at the interface between a ferromagnetic metal and a semiconductor.

Divide Continues Between Nations and Companies at United Nations Climate Talks
(KATOWICE, Poland) — Divisions deepened at the U.N. climate talks Thursday, pitting rich nations against poor ones, oil exporters against vulnerable island nations, and those governments prepared to act on global warming against those who want to wait and see. The stakes were raised by a scientific report that warned achieving the most ambitious target in the 2015 Paris climate accord to limit emissions is getting increasingly difficult.
