During the International Conference on High-Energy Physics (ICHEP 2020), the ATLAS collaboration presented the first observation of photon collisions producing pairs of W bosons, elementary particles that carry the weak force, one of the four fundamental forces.
Latest observation by GRANDMA network allows scientists to set limits on specific astrophysical phenomena. Astronomers were looking for gravitational waves to see events invisible to optical and radio telescopes.
The results of the NextBase international project, with the participation of scientists from the FZU, have brought hope for the restoration of European competitiveness in the production of solar panels. The project has developed prototypes of solar cell with high efficiency and low-cost potential.
The patented solution of scientists from the Institute of Physics and Czech Technical University prolongs the lifetime of nuclear fuel rods under nuclear reactor accident and working conditions by coating the surface of fuel rods by a thin polycrystalline diamond layer.
Today is an important milestone in the laser history. On the 16th of May 1960, the American physicist and engineer Theodore Maiman designed and launched the first functional laser system in the world and this year we celebrate its 60th anniversary.
Czech scientists have contributed to the development of a new class of single- dimensional organic conductors
A joint work by Czech, Spanish and Swiss scientists published by Nature Nanotechnology this week, introduces a new approach to the development of non-metallic conductors which could be used in solar energy, optical technologies or nanoelectronics.
At the moment, students can participate in an Internet round of the competition at the following website: www.talentovka.cz. During a three-day finale in October, twelve best competitors will check out the simulation of a scientific experiment at professional laboratories of the laser centres.
A serial production of protective masks will be launched by the Institute of Physics in cooperation with ten Czech companies
One of the first batches of the planned weekly 50 000-piece productions will be delivered to the institutes of the Czech Academy of Sciences, where researchers test samples for the presence of the coronavirus
New technology, developed by a team of researchers led by Hana Lísalová from the Department of Optical and Biophysical Systems, could enable to detect SARS-COV-2 viral particles directly.
