During the last week (6-11 May, 2018) the Budapest Neutron Centre (BNC – a consortium of MTA Wigner Research Centre for Physics and MTA Centre for Energy Research) hosted the 12th Central European Training School (CETS-12) on neutron techniques. The objective of the school was to provide an insight into different neutron techniques: neutron scattering, imaging and elemental analysis, both at the level of tutorials as well as hands-on training.
The 9th Einstein Telescope Symposium took place on 19-20th April, 2018 at the European Gravitational Observatory (EGO) in Cascina, Italy, where the Advanced Virgo gravitational-wave detector is situated. Among more than 100 participants the APPEC (AstroParticle Physics European Consortium) and the LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory) were represented at the highest level.
For building quantumtechnology in Hungary, a consortium has been founded led by MTA Wigner RCP. The members of the consortium, named HunQuTech are: Wigner Research Centre for Physics, consortium leader, the Institute of Phyics, the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, the Institute of Physics of the Eötvös Loránd University, Bonn Hungary Electronics, Ericsson Hungary, Nokia-Bell Labs, Femtonics.
The MTA Wigner RCP is happy to announce that the MTA Wigner Physical Research Center of Physics and the Palace of Wonders Science Center has signed a cooperation agreement. Under the terms of the agreement the MTA Wigner RCP offers its professional experience and enriches the exhibits of the Palace of Wonders with new segments, the Palace of Wonders draws its visitors' attention to the research activities at the MTA Wigner Physical Research Center.
The atomic beam probe is a unique extension of the beam emission spectroscopy (BES) diagnostic, being developed at the Wigner Research Centre for Physics (Hungary). The BES is a special tool to diagnose plasma edge density.
