On Thursday our group was honored by the visit of Prof. László P. Biró, head of the Nanostructures Department of the MTA TTK MFA, Budapest. His group has some very interesting results on the optical properties of butterfly wings and I'm very excited about our cooperation related to the nanoporous structure of the wings. Interestingly, this topic fits 100% into the main research theme of our Porous Nanocomposites research group.
Friday was also the 1st of March, the first official working day of Ms. Tímea Simon, the new lab technician employed by the Porous Nanocomposites research group. This position was planned in the original "Lendület" proposal but we were not able to fill it until now, so I'm quite happy to have Tímea on board now. I hope that she and the group will have a mutually beneficial working relationship.
