75 years Geological Institute of BAS

The Geological Institute "Strashimir Dimitrov" of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences marked its 75th anniversary with a celebration held on 15 November at “Prof. Marin Drinov” Hall of BAS. The director Prof. Radoslav Nakov presented the main aspects of the Institute's activities and recalled the mission of the scientists - to study the geological systems and georesources on the territory of Bulgaria and the Balkan Peninsula. The Geological Institute is the only national complex geological organisation that systematically acquires knowledge on the geology of Bulgaria, said also Prof. Nakov. The 85th anniversary of Acad. Ivan Zagorchev was also celebrated. He is a respected scientist with worldwide recognition in the field of Earth sciences. Acad. Zagorchev delivered a lecture in which he presented his scientific research [...]

New laser system supports research at the Institute of Electronics

A new picosecond laser with harmonic frequency generation modules will support research at the Institute of Electronics of BAS. The state-of-the-art equipment will be used to develop new multifunctional materials. Within the framework of two projects funded by the National Science Fund, scientists from the Micro- and Nanophotonics Laboratory are looking for new approaches to form composite nanostructures from metal oxides and precious metals and to obtain new materials by laser-induced decomposition of nitride ceramics. The research will apply the method of laser ablation by picosecond pulses. Picosecond laser systems, generating pulses with durations of units to tens of picoseconds, are of increased scientific and applied interest. They are easier to use and more stable than systems generating ultrashort pulses. The application of picosecond laser [...]

John Atanasoff – inventor of digital electronic computation

On the occasion of a publication on the Club “Z” website https://clubz.bg/129099, which claims that John Vincent Atanasoff's contribution to the basic principles of electronic digital computation is the fruit of unjustified Bulgarian ambitions, academicians from the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences are recalling his achievements. The principles underlying modern computers are the essence of John Atanasoff's significant discovery. More precisely:           Using the binary number system. Numbers are represented only by 0 and 1;           Using electronic circuits to represent numerical information (0 or 1);           Introduction of regenerative (recoverable) memory;           Performing immediate logical operations. In 1939, John Atanasoff demonstrated a working prototype of his digital electronic computer. During the period 1939-1942, [...]
