From super-sealings to the detection of dangerous cables thanks to ion beams

Obraz mikropęknięcia z mikroskopu SEM
When accelerated neutrons or ions bombard a material, its surface layer undergoes dramatic physical and chemical transformations. The National Center for Nuclear Research has managed to learn in detail about the processes occurring in such situations in polymers. The collected knowledge was used by physicists to create a method of producing supersealings, they also proposed a simple and quick way to detect dangerous cables whose polymer insulation begins to lose their insulating properties. ----

Artificial intelligence will track down gravity lenses

Images of distant galaxies, distorted by powerful gravitational lenses, are visually the most out-of-the-box phenomena photographed by telescopes. Their automatic detection is difficult for many reasons. During the international workshop in Warsaw, dedicated to machine learning, NCBJ scientists demonstrated theoretical models and software that deal with this task with high efficiency and reliability. ----

The MARIA research reactor will test the components of the ITER fusion reactor, which is under construction in France

NCBJ) signed a framework agreement with the ITER Organization (IO) under which material samples and diagnostic windows for use in the ITER fusion reactor will be tested. Special thermostatic capsules will be designed to recreate the conditions in the place of their final installation. They will be placed in the core of our reactor, irradiated and then tested. ----

The participants of the radiographic research conference visited Świerk

On September 13, NCBJ hosted the participants of the twenty-second National Conference on Radiographic Research. The topics traditionally included, among others contemporary trends in the development of X-ray radiography, interesting cases encountered in the course of research, technical and technological innovations and new areas of application of X-ray imaging. ----

NCBJ scientists awarded with NCN grants: POLONEZ BIS and SONATINA

Two NCBJ scientists were awarded with grants from competitions of the National Science Center. Wenyi Huo, PhD. from the NOMATEN Center of Excellence received a POLONEZ BIS grant for a project on high entropy alloys, while PhD. Ilkka Samuli Mäkinen received a grant from the SONATINA competition for a project on loop quantum gravity. ----

Metallic layers with high entropy are formed in NCBJ

Aluminum, titanium, nickel, niobium and tungsten – as many as five elements make up the high-entropy layers just produced at the National Center for Nuclear Research. Their production means that the center in Świerk joined the research on coatings considered to be one of the most innovative in contemporary surface engineering. ----

Incorrect reports about problems with the availability of LutaPol

Pojemniki z LutaPolem
In connection with the article in Gazeta Stołeczna entitled „Treatment of a patient with cancer was canceled. The reason? The radioisotope is imported from Russia" we explain that the reasons for the described situation do not lie on the part of NCBJ and we do not know anything about that could be associated with problems with supplies from Russia. ----
