Our colleagues' publication in Biomedical Optics Express 09/20/2016

A research article published in Biomedical Optics Express in September 1, 2016 reached the first place in “Today's Top Downloads” for a few days after its online publishing. The paper has  been published by the research group of Róbert Szipőcs, PhD of Wigner RCP and reports  on a novel, Yb-fiber laser based, handheld 2PEF/SHG microscope imaging system. It is suitable for in vivo imaging of murine skin at an average power level as low as 5 mW at 200 kHz sampling rate.

Successful Beam Emission Spectroscopy (BES) summer school in Budapest 09/14/2016

The Institute of Nuclear Techniques of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics together with the Wigner Research Centre for Physics organized the first Beam Emission Spectroscopy (BES) summer school in Budapest between 29/08/2016 and 02/09/2016. Sixteen students participated the event from all over Europe. They were introduced to the BES fusion plasma diagnostic technique in details, in which the Hungarian research group plays a leading role in Europe. The head of the organizing... more view

Gravitational waves were detected again by the LIGO-Virgo collaboration 06/16/2016

On December 26, 2015 at 03:38:53 UTC, scientists of the LIGO-Virgo scientific collaboration observed gravitational waves for the second time in the data of the LIGO observatory. Similarly to the event detected in February the gravitational wave signal was produced by the collision of a pair of black holes.
