Olga Petrova (Junior Researcher, Elementary Particle Physics Department, DLNP) with her poster report “Effect of the east–west asymmetry in atmospheric muon fluxes at the NOvA far detector” became a winner at the poster session of the JINR Programme Advisory Committee for Particle Physics on 21.01.2019. We heartily congratulate Olga and wish her further success and advances!
Preview of the general laboratory seminar “Study of elastic NN interactions using polarized beams and target at ANKE–COSY” by Sergey Dymov, 30.01.2019
To make a contribution to the nucleon–nucleon scattering data array is one of priority research directions for the ANKE collaboration. These data are needed both for an advance in the understanding of nuclear forces and for description of meson production processes and other nuclear reactions at intermediate energies.
Preview of the general laboratory seminar “Development of the multi-energy X-ray tomography method using detectors based on microchips of the Medipix family” by Danila Kozhevnikov, 29.01.2019
Hybrid pixel detectors based on Medipix microchips allow data on the energy of each photon hitting a particular pixel to be obtained in addition to the coordinate information. Their development and wide use in the past decade have renewed interest in multi-energy X-ray computer tomography, opening up a possibility of not only obtaining a high-quality image of the sample under investigation but also determining its elemental composition.

January 20, 2019 marks the 80th birthday of Leonid Grigorievich Tkachev, Head of the Astrophysics Research Sector, Elementary Particle Physics Department, DLNP.
He began to work at JINR in 1963 as a postgraduate attached to the Laboratory of Theoretical Physics, and in 1966 he took the position of a researcher at the Laboratory of Nuclear Problems. He actively participated in the preparation of the large-volume liquid-hydrogen chamber project and then was engaged in theoretical and methodological investigations into the operation basics of the ultrasound bubble chamber. In 1972, based on the results of those investigations, L.G. Tkachev successfully defended the Candidate of Sciences dissertation.
Over that time, he grew into a highly skilled specialist capable of solving complicated scientific, technological, and organizational problems. In 1975–1984 he worked at the RISK facility and made a substantial contribution to the analysis of the experimental data and development of several key units, such as the gas system, readout system, and some others. In addition, he contributed to the successful organization of the international team’s work at all stages of preparing and conducting the experiment at the RISK spectrometer at the IHEP, beginning with the design of the spectrometer and ending with the analysis of the data.
Young scientists, postdocs, and senior students focused on astrophysics and cosmology! Registration for the XVI Baksan School on Astroparticle Physics “Particles and Cosmology” is open until 1 February 2019. The School will be held in Terskol, Kabardino-Balkaria, Russia, on 10–18 April. The Organizers are the Institute for Nuclear Research, the Dzhelepov Laboratory of Nuclear Problems (Joint Institute for Nuclear Research), and APPEC.
The School is devoted to discussion of experimental and theoretical aspects of modern astrophysics and cosmology problems. The programmeincludes three main lecture courses with teaching aids, practical and discussion sessions, a few special lectures and a special seminar for participants’ presentations, and an excursion to the underground laboratories of the Baksan Neutrino Observatory.
On 12–18 January 2019, a meeting on the JUNO project is held in Shanghai. JINR has been participating in the JUNO collaboration for about four years. In 2020, it is planned to begin commissioning of the reactor neutrino experiment in China, where construction of a large laboratory, the Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory, is now well underway 150 km off Hong Kong. The main goal of the experiment is to determine the neutrino mass hierarchy by precision measurements of neutrino oscillations. JINR is represented by a team of about 10 scientists, mainly from our laboratory.
