2019.01.03 On January 8-11, 2019, the XXV Cracow EPIPHANY Conference on Advances in Heavy Ion Physics will take place at the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
2018.12.20 The last missing particle of the Standard Model, the Higgs boson, was discovered in 2012 in the experiments at the Large Hadron Collider. Since then, searching for new, related particles has been underway. Predicted by various theories that go beyond known physics, Higgs bosons with positive or negative electric charge are among the favorites to be observed. But do these particles really exist?
2018.12.13 One transistor, just a pair of inductors and capacitors. Such a simple electronic circuit can become an oscillator with a surprising richness of behavior. However, even more interesting effects become visible if the structure of connections is fractal and shows some... imperfections. Could similar rules explain the diversity and complexity of the human brain dynamics?
2018.12.12 The development of spintronics depends on materials that guarantee control over the flow of magnetically polarized currents. However, it is hard to talk about control when the details of heat transport through the interfaces between materials are unknown. This “thermal” gap in our material knowledge has just been filled thanks to the Polish-German team of physicists, who for the first time described in detail the dynamic phenomena occurring at the interface between a ferromagnetic metal and a semiconductor.
2018.11.22 The near future of the global economy looks extremely bleak. This pessimistic forecast comes from advanced statistical analysis of the S&P 500 stock market index, recently published by scientists from the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Cracow.
