Russian Physicists Won Competition for Super Collider Project
December 27, 2015 14:18

The new supercollider in the European Nuclear Research Center (CERN) will be based on the project by Russian scientists. Its creation was discussed by 68 institutes from dozens of countries over two last years.
As a result, the project of the G. I. Budker Nuclear Physics Institute in Novosibirsk has been chosen by CERN as the base for construction of a new ultrapowerful collider that will be much bigger that the Large Hadron Collider, the Institute deputy director Yevgeny Levichev reported to Interfax.
"This year our version has been approved as the basic one and it will be  developed further on", - he said and noted that the conceptual project of a new collider would have been prepared by 2018.
He mentioned that right after the discovery of the Higgs boson particle on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in 2014 the CERN started implementing  a new project - the so-called Future Circular Collider (FCC).
"It is a very ambitious project. While the Large Hadron Collider has the circlumference of about 30 km, future colliders will have the circlumference of 100 km - that is an unprecedented installation in the terrestrial history" - Mr. Levichev explained.
He noted that the project concerns the construction of several colliders - the first line will be an electron - positron collider with the beam energy of up to 175 gigaelectronvolts that is intended for ultraprecise study of the Higgs boson.
According to him, the G. I. Budker Nuclear Physics Institute suggested its own development for the new electron -positron collider - the method of beam meeting - which increases the equipment productivity  by around 100 times as compared to traditional methods.
In future a proton collider with the beam energy of up to 50 teraelectronvolt, which is several times more than that of the Large Hadron Collider, will be constructed.
"These ultrahigh energy colliders will be extremely interesting, that is there is new physics where where no foot may tread", - Mr. Levichev emphasized.
