T2K experiment has presented first results of research on CP symmetry violation

Super-Kamiokande detector
The T2K interantional collaboration has announced new results on neutrino/antineutrino sy­mmetry in neutrino oscillations. The discovery that neutrinos and antineutrinos behave differently should help to understand why matter is dominating in the Universe over antimatter. If laws of physics were identical for both matter and antimatter, the Universe would be filled up only with annihilation radiation. But that’s not the case as we are existing. ----

Agreement on prolongation of NCBJ-DESY (Deut­sches Elek­tronen Syn­ch­ro­tron) cooperation was recently signed in Hamburg by Dr. Krzysz­tof Ku­rek, NCBJ Director General. Polish delegation led by Prof. Ma­ciej Cho­row­ski, Director of National Centre for Research & Development (who represented also during that visit Polish Mi­ni­stry of Science and Higher Education) witnessed also the delivery of a next batch of elements manufactured in Poland as “in-kind” contribution to development of European Free Electron Laser (XFEL). ----
