NCBJ becomes one of the partners of the European medical radionuclide programme PRISMAP

NCBJ participates in the European programme of production of medical isotopes – PRISMAP. With our experience in the field of production and research of radionuclides for medical purposes, we will be one of the elements of the communication network for the users of new radionuclides for diagnostics and therapy created within the project. ----

During 47 Congress of Polish Physicists, a probe with CosmicWatch detectors was sent into the stratosphere

47 Con­gress of Polish Phy­si­ci­sts takes place in Byd­goszcz on 19–23 Sep­tem­ber 2021. On Sep­tem­ber 19, the part of the Con­gress dedi­ca­ted to teaching phy­sics was inau­gu­ra­ted by sen­ding a tan­dem stra­to­sphe­ric probe, which inc­lu­ded cosmic rays detec­tors pro­vi­ded by NCBJ. ----

NCBJ was established 10 years ago

"On August 22 (2011), an ordinance of the Council of Ministers was published establishing the National Center for Nuclear Research as of September 1, 2011. The government's decision to merge the POLATOM Institute of Atomic Energy and the Institute for Nuclear Problems ends the nearly 30-year period of the destruction of Świerk. The Institute for Nuclear Research is being reborn under a new name and with new tasks. " ----

High-temperature irradiation rig started its operation in the MARIA reactor core

Sonda wysokotemperaturowa przygotowywana na stanowisku testowym w NCBJ
Since 27th of August, 2021 irradiation rig has been successfully operating in the core of MARIA reactor. This installation allows irradiation of material samples at temperature of 1000°C, that’s under conditions prevailing in HTGR reactors. The device was built at Polish National Centre for Nuclear Research (NCBJ) as part of the GoHTR project. ----

NOMATEN: software for analyzing microscopic images of materials using machine learning

Kolaż dekoracyjny
Large Data is common across materials science. Cross-correlating and understanding data from material surfaces is very important since there is typically a direct connection to physical properties. Also, it is very important to use this data to reconstruct the actual microstructure and perform simulations in a computer at the molecular or larger scale. However, understanding of Large Data requires the application of statistical and machine learning techniques. Further, simulations require efficient microstructural reconstruction techniques. Stefanos Papanikolaou's group at NOMATEN investigates such issues. ----

A new theoretical description of the forced release of energy from nuclear isomeric states

A simplified diagram of the process of forced energy release from the 93mMo (21/2 +, 2425 keV) isomer under the conditions of ion (93Mo) -atom (12C) interaction.
Polish and American scientists have published a paper presenting an attempt to describe a promising process that allows the use of "on demand" energy previously stored in nuclear isomeric states. This process has recently been experimentally observed. The presented approach improves the results of previous theoretical analyzes. ----
