Business - Innovations - Technology (BIT of WUT)

We are proud to present the intellectual potential of WUT’s students, graduates and employees in the new folder entitled “Business - Innovations – Technology”

Warsaw University of Technology has researchers working on a range of scientific topics which are explored in different areas and on different scale. Often the outcome of these helps with development of new technologies or everyday products to come into being.

Here we would like to present the diversity of topics which are of interest to WUT’s researchers.

Significant paper in Nature

Is it possible to predict in detail the process of formation of a solid from a liquid?

Opublikowano: 23/11/2020 2:29 pm

Electrorheological fluid was patented in 1947

Under the influence of an electric field, it increases its viscosity in a very short time and creates... a solid. This is the main property of the electrorheological fluid. Over the years, it has found a number of applications, but a good theoretical explanation of its creation was missing. Until now. Everything changed thanks to a group from the Faculty of Physics at the Warsaw University of Technology.
