On 17 June, the exhibition “Science in Comic Strips: an Easy Way to Explain Complicated Things” was opened at the JINR Universal Library. This exhibition is a joint project of DLNP and the Komikadze group. Elena Dubovik, the head of the Group of Scientific Communication (DLNP SciCom), shared with the reading-room audience the details of the experiment of the Dzhelepov Laboratory of Nuclear Problems on educational visualization of its investigations. Five comic strips introduced at the meeting refer to studies performed by the DLNP Sector of Molecular Genetics of the Cell under the guidance of Elena Kravchenko, Candidate of Biology.

On 17 January 2022, the article “A tomograph for mice has been developed at JINR” was published in the newspaper “Strana ROSATOM”: https://strana-rosatom.ru/2022/02/17/v-oiyai-izobreli-tomograf-dlya-myshej/

Experts from the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research and the Cuban scientific centres CENTIS and CEADEN have developed a technology that will improve the spatial resolution of single-photon emission computed tomography. It matters a lot to pharmaceutical scientists. We have talked to the project authors.

During 2022−2023, the United Engine Corporation of Rostec will anneal 2100 permalloy shields for sensors of the Observatory, which will increase its sensitivity by 50%. Neutrino telescope sensors installed in the water of Lake Baikal detect high-energy particles and determine their source. It allows scientists to study events in deep space.

An unusual telescope of the Baksan Neutrino Observatory in the Caucasus is located in deep tunnels under the four-kilometre-high Andyrchi mountain. Sunlight never reaches this place. What the telescope does here is “observing” distant stars. The rock shields detectors from the outside world and allows physicists to detect neutrinos, mysterious particles that hardly interact with matter. Besides cosmic fluxes of elusive neutrinos, scientists also find in the remote corners of the Baksan tunnels… curious forms of life ― earlier unknown microorganisms which have adapted to extreme environments there. These microbes can be helpful for medical and biotechnological research in the future.

Физики из коллаборации Daya Bay сообщили о новых результатах по измерению одного из углов смешивания нейтрино. Как сообщает сайт Брукхейвенской национальной лаборатории, благодаря анализу пяти с половиной миллионов столкновений антинейтрино с веществом детекторов ученым удалось в два с половиной раза превысить проектную точность эксперимента. Это позволит точнее изучить вопрос асимметрии между веществом и антивеществом во Вселенной.

The joint Russian−Cuban project “High-Resolution SPECT/CT Method Based on Medipix Detectors” (Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography/Computed Tomography) involves scientists from the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in Dubna, not far from Moscow, and researchers from the Cuban scientific centres CENTIS and CEADEN. The spokesperson of the project on the part of Russia is A. S. Zhemchugov, a deputy head of the Experimental Department of Colliding Beams (Dzhelepov Laboratory of Nuclear Problems of JINR), and the spokesperson on the part of Cuba is the senior researcher A. Leyva Fabelo (Center for Technological Applications and Nuclear Development, CEADEN).

“Studying neutrino properties allows going beyond the Standard Model of elementary particles and revealing the mystery of the structure of the Universe,” remarked the scientist.

Yury Gornushkin, the head of the Sector of Experimental Neutrino Physics of the Dzhelepov Laboratory of Nuclear Problems of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) explained what is special about neutrino detection at the Large Hadron Collider. Being interviewed by “Zvezda”, the scientist explained that these elementary particles are of interest for many physicists in the world because studying neutrino properties allows going beyond the Standard Model and revealing the mystery of the structure of the Universe.
