Our colleague from the Institute of Physics of the Lodz University of Technology, professor Jolanta Prywer, was asked by the prestigious journal Science to write an article about fascinating objects of our world: biogenic crystals.
Biogenic crystals are crystals that grow inside or under the influence of living organisms. Their forms are very diverse and the process of their growth is extremely complex. Understanding how they are formed, what role they play in living organisms and what physical properties they have will open the way for us to use them in various applications, e.g. medicine or even in the fight against the effects of climate change.
An article by Prof. dr hab. Jolanta Prywer was published on April 14-th.
