Our scientists in the RHIC / AGS User's Executive Committee!

The aim of the RHIC / AGS User's Executive Committee is to provide an organized channel of information exchange between BNL authorities and the administration and scientists working for all pillars of the laboratory: nuclear, high energy, heavy ions and radiobiology. The Committee will inform about the needs and plans of people actively involved in leading research projects and ensure good information exchange, which is to allow for a better assessment of the needs and plans of scientists and consequently apply into effective use of the RHIC / AGS experimental complex.

Universal aspects of vortex reconnections across the BCS-BEC crossover

by Marek Tylutki and Gabriel Wlazłowski

Phys. Rev. A 103, L051302 (2021)

Spin-polarized droplets in the unitary Fermi gas


We demonstrate the existence of a type of spatially localized excitations in the unitary Fermi gas: spin-polarized droplets with a peculiar internal structure involving an abrupt change in the pairing phase at the surface of the droplet. It resembles the structure of the Josephson-π junction occurring when a slice of a ferromagnet is sandwiched between two superconductors. The stability of the impurity is enhanced by the mutual interplay between the polarization effects and the pairing field, resulting in an exceptionally long-lived state. The prospects for its realization in experiments are discussed.

Nonequilibrium Phenomena in Superfluid Systems

Future of Nuclear Fission Theory

In colaboration with Professor Piotr Magierski

The theory of nuclear fission has a long history, driven for many years by technological applications and heavy element studies. Today the needs are even broader with the recognition of new connections to other disciplines such as astrophysics and fundamental science.

New TOP500 Supercomputer list

November 18th published new list of the best supercomputers on Earth. China and USA still dominates the list, but in different categories. Total computing power of all machines is still growing and reaches 1.65 exaFLOP. Entry level went up to 1.14 PFLOPS, went up from 1.02 PFLOPS since the last list from June 2019.

In memoriam Marka Peryta

„Przeszedł przez życie dobrze czyniąc.”

Tak najkrócej mogę wyrazić to, co myślę o Marku kiedy wiem, że Go już nie ma wśród nas. Czynił wiele, bo nigdy nie pozostawiał bez reakcji rzeczy, spraw, czy problemów – gdy coś wymagało naprawy, pomocy lub rozwiązania. Zawsze chętny, zawsze z uśmiechem.

Teraz Marka zabrakło. Ale czy pozostała tylko pustka? NIE! „Duch Marka”, wyrażający się w Jego umiejętności rozwiązywania problemów, tych fachowych i tych ludzkich, w Jego stosunku do współpracowników, w Jego ręce, gotowej zawsze do niesienia pomocy – pozostanie naszym „spirytus movens” - na zawsze.

New Publication about quarkonium and hadrons

New publication by: Marzieh Bahmania, Daniel Kikoła and Leszek Kosarzewski

The primary purpose of experimental high-energy nuclear physics is to investigate the properties of the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP), a matter in local thermal equilibrium with quark and gluon degrees of freedom. Such a state of matter existed in the early Universe, and we can create it for a short while in heavy-ion collisions with high enough energy density.

Consolidation of the PW leadership of the antiprotonic atoms program at AEgIS experiment at CERN

The international collaboration of the AEgIS experiment at CERN has nominated Dr Georgy Kornakov, assistant professor of the Physics Faculty of PW, on 14/9/2021 for the Convenership for Physics with Antiprotonic Atoms. This position will be shared with Dr Giovanni Cerchiari from University of Innsbruck. This nomination strengthens the leadership position of the PW team within the AEgIS experiment.

Expert "point of view"

Viewpoint on „Quantum entanglement in nuclear Cooper-pair tunneling with γ-rays” paper by G. PotelF. BarrancoE. VigezziR. A. Broglia has been written by Piotr Magierski. He starts viewpoint with the sentence: A new analysis of heavy-ion collision experiments uncovers evidence that two colliding nuclei behave like a Josephson junction - a device in which Cooper pairs tunnel through a barrier between two superfluids.
