That a nice young scientist working in our laboratory!
An interview with Lyudmila Kolupaeva by the Moskovskii Universitet newspaper, February, 2018.
We are pleased to annonce the ISAPP-Baikal Summer School "Exploring the Universe through multiple messengers", which will take place from July 12 to 21, 2018, in the picturesque village Bol'shie Koty (Big Cats) on the shore of the Lake Baikal.
We invite graduate and PhD students as well as early-career PhDs (postdocs) to attend the School. Exceptionally motivated undergraduates are also welcome. The working language of the school is English. The School offers a unique experience of full scientific immersion "Siberian style":
⦁ 8 days of lectures given by experts on astroparticle physics, cosmic rays, gamma astronomy, neutrino physics, gravity, and HEP,
⦁ plenty of time for questions and informal discussions with lecturers,
⦁ intensive study sessions on topics of the lectures held in small groups,
⦁ an opportunity to give a presentation or present a poster of own work,
⦁ friendly atmosphere, new contacts and friends,
⦁ and finally the stunning views of the lake Baikal and Siberian Taiga.
Valery Vasilievich Kobets about the projected upgrading of the LINAK-200 linear electron accelerator
The possibility of testing prototype detectors in test beams is of crucial importance for scientific methodological research. The fact that JINR is lacking facilities with test electron beams considerably slows down advance in development of new electromagnetic calorimeters, photon imagers, and radiation-hard detectors for future collider experiments.
DLNP is preparing a project for upgrading the LINAK-200 accelerator to produce test beams of electrons with energies of up to 800 MeV. It is planned to use LINAK-200 in applied research (radiation materials science, radiation genetics, etc.) and for purposes of education.

Parsamyan Bakur speaks about the results of the experiments on the measurement of spin-dependent azimuthal asymmetries
For a few past decades the spin structure of the nucleon has been one of the most important among still unraveled mysteries in high-energy physics. Experimental collaborations of the leading international and national laboratories (BNL, CERN, FNAL, DESY, JINR, JLab, KEK, etc.), as well theorists and phenomenologists from all over the world have concentrated their efforts to solve the problem.
Igor Aleksandrovich Suslov made a review of the methods for top-quark mass measurement used in the CDF experiment and presented the latest published results obtained by the team of the Division of Multiple Hadron Processes, DLNP, from the analysis of the total experimental statistics for the dilepton decay mode.
1) Test of the Standard Model and search for New physics
2) Multi-messenger astrophysics
3) Neutrino physics
4) Elastic and diffractive scattering of hadrons and nuclei
5) Deep inelastic scattering and multiparticle dynamics
6) Ion colliders for study of the baryonic matter at extreme conditions
7) Computing for Large Scale Accelerator Facilities (LHC, FAIR, NICA, etc.)
8) New detector and data analyses technique
The program will include invited talks (30 minutes) and selected contributed reports (20 minutes).
The working language is English.
I congratulate you on the 62nd anniversary of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research!
We celebrate this event summing up the milestones of the 25-year stage of modern JINR development that is connected with political and economic changes in the USSR and some other JINR Member States. This process opened “a new era” of JINR international status development. In 2018, this 25-year jubilee will be celebrated on merit. In February, at the meeting of the JINR Scientific Council, we reported on numerous significant results in the main fields acquired during the past year that have been presupposed by the Seven-Year Plan.
Project “Precision laser metrology for accelerators and detector complexes” prolonged for the period of 2019–2021
At the session of the DLNP Science and Technology Council held on 15 March 2018 a decision was made to prolong the project “Precision laser metrology for accelerators and detector complexes” for the period of 2019–2021. The authors of the project achieved record parameters of the measuring complex developed for metrological support of modern colliders and large detector complexes.
In the first section of the project it is proposed to create a NETWORK of six JINR Precision Laser Inclinometers for visualizing variations in the landscape under the effect of the propagating surface seismic waves. The resulting data on the deformation of the Earth surface will be used by the feedback control system to correct online the operating parameters of the collider and stabilize spatial positions of the beam focuses in the collision zone.
