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. ----

Concept design of the HTGR-POLA research reactor

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. ----

Unveiling the hidden stars: ALMA Shines a Light on Dust Attenuation

zwartość gwiazdowo-pyłowa w funkcji wieku Wszechświata. Rozkład osiąga szczyt w okolicach kosmicznego południa.
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. ----
