J-PET has been pre­sen­ted in Cra­cow

Visualisation of the nymerical model of the J-PET detector (NCBJ)
Today J-PET, a posi­tron emis­sion tomo­gra­phy scan­ner, desi­gned and con­struc­ted in the Marian Smo­lu­chow­ski Insti­tute of Phy­sics on the Jagiel­lo­nian Uni­ver­sity, has been pre­sen­ted in Cra­cow. Employ­ees of Natio­nal Cen­tre for Nuc­lear Rese­arch were among the team resposible for this project. The device allows for uti­li­zing com­ple­tely new methods of body ima­ging based on multi-pho­ton decays. So far, those types of decay have never been uti­li­zed for this pur­pose. ----

On the 20th Sep­tem­ber 2019, a dele­ga­tion from the Japa­nese Ato­mic Energy Agency, with its pre­si­dent, Mr. Toshio Kodama, visi­ted NCBJ. During the visit an imple­men­ta­tion con­tract for the coope­ra­tion agre­ement, which was signed two years ago, was conc­lu­ded. The con­tract put an empha­sis on the field of high-tem­pe­ra­ture reac­tor tech­no­logy. The guests also went on a tour aro­und the Insti­tute. ----

Mini-EUSO is flying to space: the Earth as a huge detector

On August 22, 2019, a rocket carrying the Soyuz MS-14 module launched towards the International Space Station (ISS) from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. Among the loads there is the Mini-EUSO telescope. The device makes it possible to create an ultraviolet map of the Earth’s atmosphere and allows to observe its variability in time. The project is attended by the scientists from NCBJ. ----
