«JINR facility for structural research at SOLARIS»

The condensed matter research is one of the pillars of the research at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research. It comprises the nuclear methods utilizing the research reactor at the Frank Laboratory of Neutron Physics, applied research of the nanomaterials in the Flerov Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions, and even theoretical approaches of the Bogoliubov Laboratory of Theoretical Physics. We are happy to announce a recently initiated collaboration between JINR and Polish synchrotron centre SOLARIS, that will add yet another important approach in condensed matter research. Namely, a structural research utilizing synchrotron X-rays. The presentation will show a concept of the new laboratory as being proposed by the experts from both institutes within the framework of their scientific programs. The proposal of the main parts of the new laboratory, the equipment and parameters desired by physicists, and technical designs will be outlined.
