2019.09.11 A planet wide particle detector known as CREDO has been established by research and education organisations, bringing together individual citizen scientists from nearly every continent.
2019.09.11 In connection with the formal constitution of the Cosmic-Ray Extremely Distributed Observatory (CREDO) Collaboration, the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IFJ PAN) in Cracow has prepared a thematic press kit on issues related to the CREDO project and cosmic radiation.
2019.08.29 Imperfections of crystal structure, especially edge dislocations of an elongated nature, deeply modify basic properties of the entire material and, in consequence, drastically limit its applications.
2019.08.19 Lithium fluoride crystals have recently been used to register the tracks of nuclear particles. Physicists from the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Cracow have just demonstrated that these crystals are also ideal for detecting tracks of high-energy ions of elements even as heavy as iron.
2019.08.06 It has long been known that gold can be used to do things that philosophers have never even dreamed of. The Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Cracow has confirmed the existence of ‘gold glue’: bonds involving gold atoms, capable of permanently bonding protein rings.
