2023.06.30 - Marek Pawłowski NCBJ has been authorized by the National Atomic Energy Agency, which will allow the institute to support the activities of the Agency’s President in the field of safety of nuclear power plants and nuclear physics in practical applications. At the current stage, these tasks will be primarily related to the processes of licensing future power plants and supervision over their construction.
2023.06.28 - Piotr Spinalski Today at 3 p.m. the premiere of a film about the work of the HITEC Nuclear Equipment Plant and the Department of Physics and Particle Acceleration Technology. It will be the tenth and last film published as part of the Virtual Days of Open Doors project of the National Center for Nuclear Research and OJ Świerk. We warmly invite you to see all the realizations!
2023.06.27 - Marek Pawłowski On June 26, 2023, a Special Colloquium was held, during which awards were presented for the best research and popularization activities in 2022 at the Fundamental Research Department. The winners were Prof. Michał Bluj, a team consisting of Prof. Paweł Ziń and Dr. Maciej Pylak, Dr. Michael Romano, and Prof. Jerzy Kowalski-Glikman and Dr. Miguel Figueira
2023.06.15 - Marek Pawłowski On June 12, at a conference organized by the Polish Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers, the conceptual design of a new Polish high-temperature research reactor developed at NCBJ was presented to the public for the first time. The helium-cooled reactor will provide 30 MW of thermal power, and the helium temperature at the outlet of the primary cooling circuit will reach 750 ⁰C.
2023.06.15 - Marek Pawłowski Interstellar dust is a key component in galaxies. It favors star formation and drives the chemistry and physics of the interstellar medium. However, it hides the majority of stars in a way that it is impossible to observe them. Astrophysicists use dust attenuation laws that would uncover these hidden stars by reverse-engineering the light from galaxies to quantify how many stars are there.
