How do three-dimensional microscopes work, what are the effective treatments for anxiety and how great is the potential of tiny particles? These and similar questions will be answered in the second special edition of Encompass. Lecturer Professor Erika Kalman, director of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences Chemical Research Centre's Institute of Nanochemistry and Catalysis, introduces selected highlights from the recent lecture series held in Székesfehérvár.
Encompass reports with a special edition, in which academic Istvan Hargittai presents a lecture on Ede Teller, a scientist who played a defining role in the second half of the last century. According to Teller's own accounts, his success was greatly helped by his start in Hungary, yet his hugely significant work was made possible by the United States. It is no exaggeration to claim that, through his work on nuclear technologies, Ede Teller was the catalyst for the bipolar geopolitics the 20th century.
Encompass once again reports with a special edition, in which we pay a visit to the Szeged University of Sciences, where physicist Gábor Szabó, sheds light on the mysteries of lasers and their practical uses with the help of a series of colourful experiments. With the assistance of Professor Lajos Kemeny, we explore the adoption of laser light in dermatology and observe Pal Ormos’s optical manipulation experiments.
