ICNMTA2022: Abstract Submission Deadline Extended
Abstract submission deadline for the ICNMTA2022, which is taking place in Ljubljana, Slovenia between 11th and 16th September 2022 has been moved to June 6th!
The Third FAIR Seminar
Prof Dr Marco Durante will talk about the recent advances in particle therapy. The lecture will be accessible live via ZOOM link, on Monday, 23rd of May, 2022, at 10AM.
Interview on the FAIR project in Delo
An interview with the scientific director of the FAIR project, Prof Dr Paolo Giubellino was published in the main Slovenian newspaper Delo (in Slovenian language). The Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) will, among other things, create matter that is normally only made in space.
The lecture on exotic isotopes
The lecture will be held on Tuesday, May 3rd, 2022 at 10AM, in the large lecture hall of the JSI. Žiga Brenčič will present a lecture, entitled Exotic Isotopes and Exotic Bound States. You are kindly invited!
Article in the Physical Review Letters journal
In collaboration with researchers from the University of Nova Gorica and the Institute of Physics at the University of Halle, we recently published an article in the Physical Review Letters journal, showing that light can magnetize matter on a nanometer scale. The article is featured on the cover of the magazine.
Article in the Physical Review C
Direct lifetime measurements via γ -γ coincidences using a fast timing detector array have been applied to determine the lifetime of low-lying states in the semimagic (N = 50) nucleus 94 Ru.
GET_INvolved - Short-term Internship Programme offer on FAIR
The GET_Involved Programme is suited for students currently enrolled in higher education institutions from all over the world at their Bachelor (only after their 5th semester), as well as Master and Doctoral level. Organized by GSI/FAIR it takes place in Germany (Darmstadt, Jena, Mainz, Julich)
New beamline with improved lateral resolution on the MIC
The new beamline will enable a significant quality leap, especially in the measurements of biological tissues at the subcellular level. The proton beam will be able to focus up to about 100 nm at lower intensities.
Article in the Journal of Physical Chemistry C
The technology and processes in metal-organic batteries are currently being explored as one of the possible alternatives to established Li-ion batteries, whose future is uncertain for various reasons, mainly due to the lack of key raw materials. In this paper, we characterized the electrochemical processes in metal-organic batteries using Raman spectroscopy.
Article in the PLOS ONE Journal
Using the MeV-SIMS technique, the cocaine content has been analyzed in hair samples. High chemical sensitivity, non-destructive characterization and high resolution of the method enable extremely accurate determination of the time dimension of drug ingestion.
The second FAIR seminar
The second seminar from the FAIR series will be held on Tuesday, March 29th at 10:00AM in the big lecture hall at JSI, Jamova 39, 1000 Ljubljana. Dr Jürgen Gerl (FAIR/GSI, Darmstadt,Germany) will discuss the latest developments within NUSTAR collaboration.
The FAIR seminar initiative aims to disseminate among Slovenian scientists, engineers, and students the knowledge about the FAIR accelerator centre in construction at Darmstadt (Germany), one of the world's largest centres of this type.
Prestigious award for pedagogical work
Dr Klemen Bučar from our department received the Marjan Jerman Award as the best assistant at the Department of Physics at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, University of Ljubljana.
An important acquisition for the XRF laboratory
At the end of last year, the XRF laboratory was modernized and it significantly expanded its measurement capabilities. New micro-XRF analytical microscope XGT-9000 from Japanese manufacturer Horiba has now provided the first results.
FAIR project explained in the STAscience section of the Slovenian Press Agency
An extensive description of the FAIR project - a center for research in the field of physics, with the emphasis on the Slovenian contribution, was recently published on the Slovenian Press Agency website, specialized in the field of science. A video presentation is included as well.
