Exit on new level of research expects launched 20 years ago, the Kurchatov synchrotron. This “Izvestia” said the President of NRC “Kurchatov Institute” Mikhail Kovalchuk.
According to him, the unit allows to study the structure of matter at the atomic level. Using synchrotron conducted thousands of studies and accumulated experience, which allowed the Russian science to remain competitive.
“Of particular relevance received research related to nanotechnology, structural diagnostics, high-resolution, material science, new methods of medical diagnosis, micromechanics, high-sensitivity chemical analysis and other areas,” — said Mikhail Kovalchuk.
The synchrotron operates around the clock, helping to solve a wide range of tasks — from creating new materials to diagnose diseases.
The plans of the Kurchatov Institute infrastructure development of synchrotron and neutron studies, including the construction of a new specialized x-ray source ISSI-4 with the record energy, brightness and pulse duration. With such powers you can create materials for ultrafast computers based on artificial intelligence, in-depth study of brain function and the genetic apparatus, to create new medicines and methods of diagnosis of various diseases.
