International projects in nuclear area
Some of the examples of international projects implemented by/with the participation of MIPT in the field of nuclear technology:
  • Nuclear Physics
Traditionally, nuclear physics includes not only studies related to the structure of the atomic nucleus and nuclear reactions, but also the entire physics of elementary particles, as well as some sections of astrophysics and cosmology. At present, the efforts of the group are concentrated in the field of so-called non-accelerator experiments in elementary particle physics.
  • International experiment GERDA
The GERDA (GERmanium Detector Array) experiment, implemented at the Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy, was created to search for the neutrinoless double beta decay of Ge-76. GERDA uses germanium detectors enriched in the Ge-76 isotope. The detectors are immersed in liquid argon, which cools them to operating temperature (87 K) and, at the same time, serves as additional protection against background radiation. The experiment is carried out in several stages or phases. At the moment, the second phase of the experiment has ended and a third is planned.
  • Muon monitor for underground low-background experiments
Location: Spain, Canfranc-Estación, underground laboratory in Canfranc (LSC Laboratorio Subterráneo de Canfranc) Task: detection of high-energy cosmic muon groups in the LSC underground laboratory.
  • Troitsk nu-mass neutrino mass search facility
The Troitsk nu-mass facility is one of the few world-class experiments operating in Russia in the field of elementary particle physics. The purpose of the experiment is to search for masses of both active and sterile neutrinos. The results obtained from the plant are currently the best in the world.
  • Belle-2 experiment at the Super-B-factory for precision measurement of the quark sector and search for new physics (head of the project – Tagir Aushev)
The goal of the project is to launch the new international Belle-II experiment at the SuperKEKB electron-positron collider and obtain new, by an order of magnitude more accurate data on the parameters of CP violation in B-meson decays, on rare decays of B- and D-mesons, as well as tau leptons. , on the properties of new hadronic states containing heavy quarks.
