2023.05.17 - Marek Pawłowski Nuclear reactions heat the fuel rods in reactor cores. Reception of the heat generated in this way is critical for the safety of the reactors themselves and the efficiency of the steam turbines that generate electricity. Complex physical phenomena occurring during coolant flows between fuel rods can now be predicted faster and more accurately thanks to unique computer simulations carried out at NCBJ.
2023.05.16 - Marek Pawłowski It's not a mistake! NCBJ ranks in the top 4% out of 20,531 universities worldwide according to the 2023 edition of the outcome-based Global 2000 list by the Center for World University Rankings, which was published on Monday May 15, 2023 on cwur.org. In Poland, we are in seventh place. Although we do not educate undergraduate and graduate students, we owe our position to the quality of our research.
The project of a PhD student of the NCBJ Department of Astrophysics qualified for the „Pearls of Science” program
2023.04.04 - Piotr Spinalski The first edition of the competition under the „Pearls of Science” program has been settled. One of the scientists qualified for the program is Krzysztof Lisiecki, MSc, a PhD student at the Astrophysics Department of the National Center for Nuclear Research, conducting research in the project „In search of witnesses to the early Universe – studying the properties of red nuggets”.
