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
2023.06.23 - Piotr Spinalski Dr. Eng. Tomasz Rajkowski from the Department of Electronics and Detection Systems of NCBJ was the winner of the Paul Phelps Continuing Education Grant, awarded annually by the Radiation Effects Committee of the IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society. The award will allow the scientist to take part in training during the NSREC 2023 international conference.
2023.06.21 - Piotr Spinalski Promising results of the first studies and tests of radiotherapy using ultra-high dose rates, FLASH, mean that interest in this technique is constantly growing. Research in this field is appreciated, as confirmed by the award received recently for an article on FLASH therapy by scientists from the NCBJ Nuclear Equipment Division.
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.
