2019.10.28 Almost everyone uses nanometer-sized alumina these days – this mineral, among others, constitutes the skeleton of modern catalytic converters in cars. Until now, the practical production of nanocorundum with a sufficiently high porosity has not been possible.
2019.10.03 The higher the collision energy of particles, the more interesting the physics. Scientists from the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Cracow have found further confirmation of this assumption, this time in the high energy collision of protons with protons or lead nuclei.
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.
