Description of the program:

The Chair of Fundamental and Applied Problems of Microworld Physics is the base of the Landau School of Physics and Research at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and is part of the Education and Research Centre at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research. It is located in the town of Dubna, Moscow Region, on the banks of the great Russian river Volga.

The Chair's aim is to train highly qualified specialists in the fields of:

  • Experimental nuclear and elementary particle physics

  • Relativistic nuclear physics and physics of heavy ions.

  • Theoretical physics

  • Neutron physics and neutron methods of material research

  • Condensed matter physics

  • Radiation biology and medicine

  • Development of radiation detectors, high speed electronics and systems - ---- automated data collection

  • Grid technologies and distributed computing systems

for subsequent work at JINR, according to the basic provisions of the Phystech system. In addition, graduates are in demand at the enterprises of the JINR "innovation belt" in the Special Economic Zone of “Dubna".

Scientific research is carried out both at JINR basic facilities (Nuclotron, Phasotron, IBR-2M pulsed reactor and IREN neutron source, heavy ion accelerators, etc.) and within international cooperation at CERN, DESY, GSI, Fermilab and other world leading accelerators. Students of the department can take part in experiments at the LHC as well as in international FAIR and XFEL projects. An important place in the Institute’s scientific programme is taken by experiments on the study of properties of nuclear matter at the NICA collider which is under construction at the JINR Laboratory of High Energy Physics. The experiments on synthesis of superheavy elements at the V.I. Veksler and A.M. Baldin Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions, and the experiments on synthesis of superheavy elements in the G.N. Flerov Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions. The research was also carried out at the IBR-2M pulsed reactor at the Franklin Laboratory for Neutron Physics, and in the field of condensed matter physics at the I.M. Franklin Laboratory for Neutron Physics. I.M. Frank.
