Exotic magnetism in graphite, when electrons crowd together on the surface

The interaction of electrons with each other and their topological properties result in quasiparticles such as Majorana bound states, fractionalized spin and charge, etc. Understanding the physics of these emergent quantum systems promises the realization of topological electronics, robust quantum bits, high temperature superconductivity, etc. Deep insights into new physics Read more…

We are going as well! – The Orion spacecraft will be launched with CER dosimeters on board on top of the SLS rocket, as part of the first Artemis mission

The dosimeters of the Space Research Department of the ELKH Centre for Energy Research (CER) are also part of the experiment that takes place in the first mission of NASA’s Artemis program. The mission will provide key data on the cosmic radiation field for the future creation of human crewed Read more…

International and National Recognition – the fruit of the collaboration between the members of the CER NSD and the RRSP NBI CFD

An event called Technical Meeting on Nuclear Forensics: From National Foundations to Global Impact was held at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) from 11 to 14 April 2022, with the participation of members from the CER Nuclear Security Department (NSD) and the staff of the RRSP National Bureau of Read more…

First results emerging from the new European activity for standardisation of industrial residual stress characterisation

Since the beginning of 2021, Centre for Energy Research have been engaged in the EU-project EASI-STRESS with partners from industry, academia and research and technology organisations (RTOs). Now, the results of the first measurements are becoming public. Residual stresses in metals may lead to catastrophic failures under fatigue processes and Read more…
