In this section you can find different data obtained with the Timepix detector in different situations. You must download the zip file corresponding to the data and unzip it.
The study investigates an unusual brightening of a star. The ICCUB –IEEC astronomer Josep Manel Carrasco is one of the authors of the study.
The first training day of the course Activities with Medipix detectors to investigate Radiation in the classroom, (ADMIRA project) took place on the past Friday, January 10, at the Aula Magna of the Faculty of Physics.
At the end of the First World War, physicist Ernest Rutherford carried out a series of experiments consisting on bombing nitrogen atoms with alpha particles. He saw the appearance of a radiation which was less ionizing than those particles and with a greater range.
The night of October 22-23, 2019, a new instrument installed in a telescope in Arizona made its first light observation pointing its 5,000 eyes of optical spectra to the cosmos. The device, which will observe a record figure of galaxies and quasars, tested its unique vobservation of the Universe.
