1 August 2015 Positron Emission Tomograph (PET) Prototype of tomograph (PET) for entire human body.

In summer of 2015 we completed the large prototype of PET type tomograph for the research group of prof. Pawel Moskal in Physics Institute at Jagiellonian University. We have designed and built the mechanical structure with detectors (several hundred of photomultipliers). The tomograph invented by prof. Moskal has several advantages over other contemporary versions. It accumulates information...

6 July 2015 Presentation of digital polychromator First presentation of digital polychromator at ISPPCC 2015.

In July 2015 we cosponsored 21st International Symposium on the Photochemistry and Photophysics of Coordination Compounds. At the conference, we had a pleasure of presenting "Polyphony of light" - an introduction of our new device: digital polychromator. The device can simultaneously produce collimated illumination consisting of several of hundreds wavelengths. Each wavelength has separately...

9 December 2013 Solution to the Schrödinger’s cat paradox

The text bellow has been rejected by: Nature, Science, Physics Reports, Reviews of Modern Physics, Physical Review Letters and arXiv without even reaching a referee stage :) Please, let me know if you have an idea how to extend the list above. Although, quantum mechanics is the same for microscopic and macroscopic objects, there is a perception that the later do not exhibit basic quantum...

1 December 2010 How to collimate light efficiently.

In classical optics, in order to narrow the width of the light beam comming up from an extensive source, a focus lense and a pinhole is used. That type of setting produces great losses in the intensity of the light and there is no improvement that can be achieved with use of more lenses, mirrors and screens. However, with the help of nonlinear optics there is hope to go beyond the...
