In the weekly Polityka (No. 25, 18-25.06.2019) there appeared an interview with prof. Art McDonald, winner of the Nobel Prize in 2015. Prof. McDonald visited AstroCeNT in May this year as a special guest at the conference “Particle Astrophysics in Poland” (20-21.05.2019) and also to discuss cooperation in connection with the accession of AstroCeNT to the emerging Global Argon Dark Matter Collaboration. In the interview, prof. McDonald underlines the importance of research that is carried out in AstroCeNT.

Group 2 led by Prof. Bulik and group 3 led by Dr. Suchenk have developed a unique infrasound sensor. It will find its application both in cutting-edge scientific research and commercial projects.
“While most commercial solutions are very expensive, we have managed to significantly reduce the cost of such a solution, which is crucial in applications where tens or even hundreds of precise sensors are needed.”
One of the important areas of AstroCeNT’s activity is education. On the basis of research groups, PhD students conduct research related to the study of gravitational waves and dark matter. The results of this work will be embodied.
We asked our PhD students to talk about what they do under the guidance of their advisors and why they chose AstroCeNT.
