Results from Wigner Research Centre on the cover page of the Journal of Chemical Physics 04/27/2015

Researchers of the Computational Materials Group of the Wigner Research Centre for Physics (László Rátkai, Attila Szállás, Tamás Pusztai, and László Gránásy) have clarified the main features and formation of the recently discovered exciting new solidification form termed the spiraling eutectic dendrite [1]. This spectacular structure forms during the freezing of three component melts via helical entanglement of two solid phases of different chemical composition.

Critical point search using Ar+Sc collisions at the NA61 experiment at CERN 03/09/2015

The understanding of strongly interacting matter is one of the most puzzling problems in particle physics. According to the QCD model of strongly interacting matter, elemetary particles called quarks interact with each-other through so called gluon fields, and in normal matter they are always bound together in composite particles such as protons, neutrons, or generally speaking: in hadrons. Theoretical considerations such as lattice QCD calculations indicate that the strongly interacting... more view

Eugene Wigner, our eponym

Eugene Paul Wigner (Budapest, 17. November 1902. – Princeton, USA, 1. January 1995.) Nobel-laureate Hungarian-US physicist, mathematician, chemical engineer. He was born in Budapest, on 17th November, 1902 and died in 1995, in Princeton, USA. He took part in the design of the first nuclear reactors, and for his work in their development he is considered the first nuclear reactor engineer.
