2021.10.04 - Piotr Spinalski 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
2021.09.22 - Marek Pawłowski 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.
2021.09.01 - Marek Pawłowski "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. "
2021.08.31 - Marek Pawłowski 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.
2021.07.27 - Marek Pawłowski 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.
2021.07.22 - Marek Pawłowski 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.
