As a distinguished guest of the Wigner Research Centre for Physics, Prof. dr. Johann Rafelski (University of Arizona) spends a research visit in the framework of a Fulbright Professorial Exchange Program between USA and Hungary in the time June - July 2020. He collaborates with Tamás Biró and his NAPLIFE team on quark-gluon plasma and novel fusion techniques.


Our colleague Örs LEGEZA has been awarded by the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS)  of Technische Universität München with the Hans Fischer Senior Fellowship. This program is dedicated to international scientists who intend to explore innovative, high-risk topics in their scientific research areas together with a TUM Research Group. Örs LEGEZA, leader of the Strongly Correlated Systems Research Group, has outstanding results in the development of novel algorithms based on tensor product factorization.

A book entitled "Electrochemical Methods of Nanostructure Preparation" written by our colleague, László PÉTER, has been published by Springer Nature in April 2021.
Scientists at the Wigner Research Centre for Physics of ELKH have reached an important milestone on the pathway toward ultrafast optoelectronic devices. Members of the Ultrafast Nanooptics Research group led by Péter Dombi made different insulating media conductive with a state-of-the-art compact laser source. Results were published in one of the leading optics and photonics journal of the world, Optica.

In a German-Hungarian collaboration led by the University of Hamburg, Krisztián Palotás (Wigner RCP, MTA-SZTE Reaction Kinetics and Surface Chemistry Research Group, Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME)), András Lászlóffy (Wigner RCP, BME) and László Szunyogh (BME, MTA-BME Condensed Matter Research Group) from Hungary, and Levente Rózsa (University of Konstanz) contributed to the theoretical understanding of quantum states at superconducting surfaces induced by magnetic impurities, and published their results in Nature Communications.
