Congratulations to the NOvA group, a winner of the competition for the Russian Science Foundation (RSF) grants!
On 2 April 2018, winners of the competition for grants in the priority area of RSF activities “Basic scientific research and exploratory scientific research conducted by small research teams” were announced. Among the winners is the DLNP research team headed by Prof. A.G. Olshevsky.
The project “Measurement of neutrino oscillations in the NOvA experiment” supposes participation in solution of fundamentally important problems, such as accurate determination of the neutrino oscillation parameters, determination of the neutrino mass hierarchy, and search for CP violation in the lepton sector.
The DLNP Directorate heartily congratulates the winners of the competition and wishes the team further success and achievements!
A regular winter expedition to Lake Baikal has come to an end. The first clusters are fully repaired. The third cluster is put into operation. All the work needed for installation of three clusters is done. This will allow 2–3 clusters to be installed during the next expeditions.
Igor Romanovich Boiko did a review of the currently projected electro–positron colliders and physical researches at them
The LHC experiments have yielded a great deal of results, the most remarkable of which is the discovery of the Higgs boson. Nevertheless, new experiments are needed to establish the most fundamental principles governing the structure of the Universe.
JINR Director V.A. Matveev and Vice-Director B.Yu. Sharkov visited the Dzhelepov Laboratory of Nuclear Problems, where they met with V.A. Bednyakov, D.V. Naumov, V.V. Glagolev, and A.A. Kul’kov. The guests were shown the operating mock-up of the Baikal Neutrino Telescope made by the DLNP staff members A.N. Borodin and D.V. Fedoseev. They also visited recently refurbished Building 4, where they assessed the quality of the refurbishment and got acquainted with new laboratories.
At the end of last week, an operating mock-up of the Baikal Neutrino Telescope made by the DLNP staff members A.N. Borodin and D.V. Fedoseev appeared in the vestibule of the DLNP Administrative Building.
Today a terrific seminar was held, where Vladimir Ivanovich Komarov spoke about the history of the Medico-Technical Complex based on the proton beam of the DLNP synchrocyclotron, about the faith and hope that unites people and gives them strength to overcome the non-overcomable… Particularly valuable is that it was the story told by the one who directly participated in those almost half a century old events.
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.
