Calendar of scientific cooperation


NA61/SHINE – Polish experiment. Continuation and extension of research started in 2010.

Currently, Seweryn Kowalski, PhD, DSc, Associate Professor,  holds the positions of Coordinator of the Detector, Coordinator of the Experiment’s Computer Resources, and Deputy Coordinator forSafety Issues. S. Pulawski, PhD, Associate Professor, holds the positions of Coordinator of the Experiment’s Software, Coordinator of the Beam and Beam Detectors, Deputy Coordinator of the Detector.


FCC – theoretical work, precise calculations within the Standard Model, Prof. Janusz Gluza, Ievgen Dubovyk, PhD, Krzysztof Grzanka, MSc.


LHC, HL-LHC – theoretical papers, phenomenology of non-standard models, Prof. Janusz Gluza, Tomasz Jeliński, PhD, Bartosz Dziewiti, PhD, Magdalena Kordiaczyńska, MSc, Radomir Sevillano, MSc.


Lecture of Prof. Carlo Rubbia (Nobel Prize winner in Physics in 1984) entitled “The Marvelous neutrinos” presented at the ICARUS physics cooperation meeting at the University of Silesia.


Establishment of cooperation with NA61/SHINE. A group of physicists from the Institute of Physics began working at the experiment by taking responsibility for the beam delivery system and the beam detectors. With each year of participation in the cooperation, the tasks and responsibilities of the group members increased.





The work of a group of physicists in the ICARUS T600 experiment, using the CNGS (CERN – Gran Sasso) beam of muon neutrinos produced at CERN in 2010-2012. One of the most important results of ICARUS was to measure the velocity of neutrinos and to falsify their superluminosity. Physicists from the University of Silesia participated in test measurements, installation of the detector in an underground laboratory in Gran Sasso, Italy, and data collection and analysis.



First participation of a physicist (Prof. Jan Kisiel) from the University of Silesia in the CRYSTAL BARREL CERN experiment: within the framework of the Humboldt Fellowship, and a three-time CERN Corresponding Fellowship.


Prof. Jan Hańderek’s cooperation with scientists from CERN – investigating the possibility of using ferroelectrics and ceramics in CERN experiments.


Theoretical work for LEP – calculations within the Standard Model, Monte Carlo generators, Prof. Henryk Czyż, Prof. Karol Kołodziej, Prof. Marek Zrałek.
