Tomsk Scientists Officially Joined CERN
March 16, 2016 18:25

Scientists of the Tomsk Polytechnical University (TPU) have become official members of the CERN (European Centre for Nuclear Research) – they will participate in experiments related to development of microstructural gas detectors.
Earlier it was reported that the scientists of CERN and TPU already cooperated in pursuing several lines. In particular, Tomsk programmers are developing an innovative system of data storage for the European Centre for Nuclear Research, and Russian physicists jointly with their European colleagues are looking for the boson – a hypothetical intermediary particle, which might be a potential candidate for the role of the dark matter that makes up to 23 per cent of the whole mass of the Universe.
"The official entering of the TPU group into the RD51 collaboration of the CERN took place in Geneva, Switzerland the other day. The RD51 collaboration is an "entry point" for exchanging knowledge on a world-wide basis", – the message reads.
It is specified that RD51 is engaged in technological development of microstructural gas detectors, engineering of the software and electronics necessary for their work, and facilitates widening of the detectors' use on the industrial scale.
"This event is very significant for the TPU since it is the university's first official entry into CERN. The group includes young scientists from two institutes of the TPU: the Physics and Technology Institute and the Cybernetics Institute", – Sergey Baydali, the head of the Cybernetics Institute pointed out.
The CERN (Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire) is Europe's largest international scientific organization in the field of nuclear physics. It is located in Switzerland. This is where a great number of big discoveries were made, in particular, the Higgs boson was discovered. This is where the Large Hadron Collider is in operation.
