Retain Hungary in the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility!

By Hungarian Synchrotron Committee. Published on 28 July 2015 in:
July 2015, ,

Hungary has been member of Europe’s most powerful synchrotron light source, the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility in Grenoble (ESRF, http://www.esrf.eu/) since 2000. The research infrastructure serving, in the first line, material structure and analytical studies is being used by about 20 groups from Hungarian universities and research institutes mainly in the field of engineering and physical sciences as well as life sciences. The annual membership fee of Hungary to ESRF is 245 thousand euros for which, however, presently no funding body can be identified. This practically…

To catch a thief

News, November 2013, , , , ,

Back in the 1950s, when the neutrino was still a hypothesis but iron curtain was a reality, A. Szalay in Hungary had an idea to take a snapshot of an event that would prove the existence of the neutrino. During his research at Cavendish Laboratory (United Kingdom), he became acquainted with the latest techniques for research in nuclear physics, and decided to investigate the decay of 6He, a short lived isotope. He recruited J. Csikai, then a young scientist, and together they built a cloud chamber with a sophisticated stereo-camera system.
Forget about megapixels, data acquisition system, everything was hardwired. Still, from the tracks…
