Doctoral project of Tomasz Kwiatkowski, MSc Eng, has been nominated by the international association NUGENIA to be presented in the young scientist competition at the periodic world conference FISA 2019 / EuradWaste’19 beginning on the 4th June in Romania. The Polish scientist researches impact of turbulent flow of the coolant on safety of nuclear reactors. ----

Can we make even heavier elements?

Researchers from Faculty of Physics UW (University of Warsaw) and National Centre for Nuclear Research point out, that, within a short time there, might be a possibility of creating two new superheavy elements, as well as a few isotopes of elements, which have already been discovered. The calculations which led to this conclusions used theoretical model created in Warsaw and took into account previously omitted processes. ----

Award for a method of localizing places of dangerous substances release

  Piotr Kopka, MSc, from the MANHAZ Centre, operating in NCBJ, received the second prize for young scientists on the NERIS conference in Roskilde, Denmark. The awarded paper concerned implementation of stochastic analyses in the issue of localisation of hazardous substances release in urban area. The implementation has been successfully evaluated on data acquired during an experiment in the centre of London. ----
