On 6 July 2018, at the session of the DLNP Dissertation Council Petr Igorevich Smolyansky defended the dissertation “Study of gallium arsenide pixel detectors based on the Timepix microcircuit” (speciality 01.04.01 “instruments and methods of experimental physics”)for getting the decree of the Candidate of Sciences in Physics and Mathematics.
We heartily congratulate Petr on the successful defence of the dissertation and wish him further success and creative achievements!
At the seminar, consideration was given to advantages and drawbacks of methods for measuring coordinates of the laser beam center and determining the range and amount of laser beam displacements using the quadrant photoreceiver, CCD matrix, and dividing plates.
The results of the double beta decay investigations were reported. The investigations are carried out with the TGV-2 andObelix low-background HPGe spectrometers at the Modane underground laboratory (France) at a depth of 4800 m water equivalent. The main goal of the measurements with the 32-detector spectrometer TGV-2 is direct detection of the two-neutrino double electron capture in the 106Cd decay.
Today, on 20 June 2018, a scientific seminar was held at the JINR Scientists’ Club to celebrate the 90th birthday of Prof. S.M. Bilenky. The seminar was organized by the Dzhelepov Laboratory of Nuclear Problems and the Bogolyubov Laboratory of Theoretical Physics.

The TAIGA Collaboration Workshop takes place at DLNP on 5–8June2018. Representatives from Russian and German research centers participate in the workshop, discussing physical results obtained at the facility in 2015–2018, its current development status, and the nearest future prospects.An emphasis is placed on completing the fabrication of the second IACT-2gamma telescope at JINR, which is scheduled to be sent to Tunka this July.
The ATLAS collaboration published the results of searching for the associative production of a Higgs boson and a top–antitop quark pair
The ATLAS collaboration published the results of searching for the associative production of a Higgs boson and a top–antitop quark pair. Investigations were performed using the data collected in the channels of the Higgs boson decay into \(b\bar b\), WW∗, τ+τ−, γγ and ZZ∗over the entire LHC operation period. The production was observed with the statistical significance of 6.3 standard deviations at the expectation of 5.1 within the Standard Model. It is a pleasure to point out that DLNP scientists take an active part in this analysis, dealing with the channel of the Higgs boson decay into τ+τ−.
