POLAR Team, including R. Marcinkowski from RADEC GmbH, published interpretation of the data taken
during detection of five GRBs (Gamma Ray Bursts) in the journal Nature Astronomy. The results show that gamma-ray bursts have a relatively low degree of polarization. Analysis gave also indications of a change in
the polarization angle – that is, the orientation of this slight polarization – over the course of individual gamma-ray bursts. RADEC GmbH is proud to take part of this successful space instrument.
