Abstract

Full text: Our scientific activities in 2009 concentrated on four subjects: low energy nuclear physics, high energy nuclear physics, materials science and applications. centre dot Low energy nuclear physics experiments were continued at the Heavy Ion Laboratory of Warsaw University in collaboration with foreign institutions: University of Jyvaskyla, Institute of Nuclear Research of the Ukrainian Academy of Science and Institut de Recherches Subatomique in Strasbourg. Dr Eryk Piasecki was nominated to full professor. centre dot A group of our colleagues, involved in the Hermes collaboration which comprises 32 institutions from eleven countries at the Deutsches Elektronen Synchrotron ( DESY) in Hamburg, have continued the analysis of Spin Density Matrix Elements and asymmetry moments in rho, phi, omega vector meson production. We hope that these studies will provide important constraints on the Generalized Parton Distribution (GPD). Prof. B. Zwieglinski and his team are involved in the large-scale international collaboration PANDA (antiProton ANnihilation at DArmstadt). They worked on the project of an electromagnetic calorimeter for the Panda detector at FAIR. Dr Dmytro Melychuk, a member of this team, defended his PhD thesis ' Development of electromagnetic calorimeter detectors and simulations for spectroscopic measurements of charmonium with PANDA '.

Dr Dmytro Melychuk, a member of this team, defended his PhD thesis ' Development of electromagnetic calorimeter detectors and simulations for spectroscopic measurements of charmonium with PANDA '. Grzegorz Kapica, a student in this team defended his master's thesis ' lnvestigating the energetic and time response of PWO scintillator with cooled photodiode readout in the gamma energy range 4 - 20 MeV ' centre dot Materials science studies focused on semiconductor compounds that could be used in electronic and optoelectronic devices. This was done in close collaboration with the Institute of Electronic Materials Technology. In particular, a determination of the thermal stability of ohmic contacts in SiC monocrystals was performed. Beams from our Van de Graaff accelerator LECH were used in particle - induced X-ray emission (PIXE) studies of polychromatic decorations from ancient Egyptian tombs. Important findings on the origin and dating of wall paintings at different archaeological sites are reported. centre dot In this year the study of nuclear track detectors continued. These detectors will be used in a planned tokamak experiment in Great Britain. A new subject undertaken in the Department in collaboration with the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish Academy of Science concerns diamond detectors. Diamond detectors have a large energy gap and very short pulse rise time. They are able to measure high intensity particle beams. As every year, apart from purely scientific activities. a few of our colleagues have been involved in education, giving lectures to students of many High Schools in Warsaw and to students of Warsaw University.
