Scientists from the NCBJ have been developing an innovative superconducting photocathode, that will allow the currently built Polish free-electron laser PolFEL to operate effectively in a continuous wave mode. This will allow distinguishing PolFEL from other such devices in the world. Detailed information was inclosed in the September issue of Vacuum magazine. ----

Quark-gluon plasma and hydrodynamic attractor

Graphics from Phys. Rev. Lett. 125, 132301
The last issue of PRL has published a paper on the use of the known from thermodynamics concept of a hydrodynamic attractor to analyze the formation processes of quark-gluon plasma. Professors Michał Spaliński and Michał Heller (BP2) together with a doctoral student and co-author from MPI argue that their approach is well suited to treatment by machine learning techniques. ----

New superheavy isotopes are likely to be produced soon

Calculations made by Polish scientists in cooperation with a group of scholars from Dubna (Russia) allow predicting with previously unavailable accuracy the possibility of producing new isotopes of superheavy elements. In the article published in the prestigious journal Physics Letter B, they presented the most promising production channels for a wide range of isotopes with the atomic numbers from 112 to 118 in various configurations of nuclear collisions leading to their formation. The predictions appear to be reliable, as they are confirmed with excellent compatibility by the experimental data available for processes already tested. ----

The first consistent study of galaxy mergers in real and simulated universes

For the first time, merging pairs of galaxies have been found using an identical method in both simulations and observations of the real universe, using artificial intelligence. The co-author of the pioneering work is Dr. William Pearson from the Astrophysics Department of the Fundamental Research Department of NCBJ. ----
