On January 16, 2020, the European Space Agency’s Business Incubator Centre Hungary (ESA BIC Hungary), together with the Gábor Dénes-Awards Club and InnoStudio, held it’s year launch event. Wigner Research Centre for Physics also participated as an organizer in the event.

We continue the temporary Apollo 50 Memorial Exhibition in partnership with the CSOPA Science Center. The exhibition startes in 2019 and it is very popular that is why we would like to continue it in 2020.

Casting methods are widely used for producing metal components. The cast product solidifying in the mold is usually polycrystalline, i.e., it is composed of a large number of crystallites. Its mechanical and other properties are determined by size-, shape-, and composition distributions of the crystallites, known as the microstructure.
In a recent article appeared in the prestigious journal Progress in Materials Science (impact factor 23.725), researchers from the Wigner Research Centre for Physics (Hungary), the Loughborough University (UK), and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (US) critically review how phase-field theoretical studies contributed to the understanding of crystal nucleation in undercooled liquids.
