Neutrinos are the most common particles in the universe but we know just a little about them. The NOvA experiment was designed for the examination of the phenomenon of neutrino oscillations and how these particles change their flavour in flight.
This year Nobel Prize awarded the fundamental extension of our understanding of the microscopic structure of solid-state materials and their new other states.
Six top Czech scientists under 40 in the fields of medicine, social sciences, biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics received the Neuron Award for young scientists.
New theoretical and experimental research whose aim is to connect two distinct fields of organic semiconductors and of spintronics. Organic semiconductors already play an important role in optoelectronics, e.g., in the development of flexible screens and solar cells.
The Researchers’ Night was visited by 550 visitors who got to know the top-class persons in the current physical research in the Czech Republic.
The HiLASE laser centre situated in the village of Dolni Brezany was awarded in the 23rd edition of the Building of the Year Awards. The organizer of this prestigious competition is the Foundation for the Development of Architecture and Construction. This year a record number of 72 buildings were registered.
"The more we know about neutrinos, the more we know about the early universe and about how our world works at its most basic level,” said NOvA co-spokesperson Gary Feldman of Harvard University.
The research proved that fully crystalline nanodiamonds can be stable down to ~ 1 nm despite some theoretical predictions. This opens a range of possibilities for studying quantum phenomena in the diamond.
Scientists from the Institute of Physics developed a unique way how to protect the surface of zirconium alloys used in nuclear reactors
Department of Functional Materials designed and successfully applied protection of zirconium alloy surface using a layer of chemically vapour deposited polycrystalline diamond.
