On the new NASA Mars Rover Curiosity set a unique neutron scanner that allows to detect water under the surface. Mars Science Laboratory mission will use 10 different scientific instruments and One of the most important instruments for the search for water is made in close cooperation with "the Russian Federal Space Agency." DAN neutron tool was developed at the "Institute for Space Studies" (Russia). As one of the developers of the neutron scanner Igor Mitrofanov, DAN instrument works on the basis of technology, which has already helped to find Martian water from orbit of the Red

Unparalleled reactor started in Dubna

start of the IBR-2 after upgrading

In Dubna started an advanced pulsed reactor IBR-2, which has no analogues in the world, the adviser to the Directorate of the Laboratory of Neutron Physics Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) Vladimir Ananev.

"IBR-2 — is setting a record for the intensity of the neutron flux per pulse and technical solutions that make it possible to get it. It is included in the European program for the development of neutron diffraction and is the only high-flux pulsed specialized research neutron source, not only in Russia but also in all the

Russia’s first neutron generator for cancer treatment launched in Obninsk

The ceremony of the physical start of the first Russian pilot compact neutron generator for neutron and neutron capture therapy of malignant tumors was held Thursday at the Medical Radiological Research Center of RAMS, Obninsk, the correspondent of RIA Novosti.

At present, the world’s neutron therapy of cancer is carried out using a large-scale neutron generators, requiring the construction of a separate building. In contrast, the compact neutron generator has a much smaller size (not more than one square meter), allowing you to use it in any radiation-protected space of the medical center.

In the near future

The neutron reactor PIK near St. Petersburg will start operating in the first half of 2011

PIK neutron research reactor, which began to be built in the Soviet era, will be operational in the first half of 2011, told reporters on Tuesday the director of RRC "Kurchatov Institute" Mikhail Kovalchuk. "In the first half of 2011, we plan to launch a physical" — Kovalchuk said.

He recalled that the reactor began to create more than 20 years ago, and with the beginning of the restructuring of its construction stopped altogether. A few years ago, it was decided to resume its construction, which have been allocated hundreds of millions of dollars, said the head

Works Russian neutron detector DAN aboard Curiosity rover

DAN Russian neutron detector mounted on board NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity, on Thursday, was first included and has been successfully tested

"He turned, checked — and it works. Neutrons he sees. Inclusion was short, just a few minutes, but it will not be permanently turned on, the unit will be included in the work plan," — said the researcher at the Space Research Institute (IKI) Maxim Litvak, who is in the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California.

Russian neutron detector DAN will find water on Mars.

With the Russian DAN instrument, which flies to Mars aboard an American interplanetary station, produced the first scientific data. DAN made at the Institute for Space Studies, stands for "dynamic neutron albedo." Its main task — with the help of the reflected beam of particles to find out how much water is in the soil of the Red Planet. You could say — neutron lozohod.

DAN Russian neutron detector aboard the Mars rover Curiosity spent the first inclusion

March 17 at 3:24 am Moscow time on board the research automatic interplanetary station NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory (born Mars Science Laboratory, abbreviated MSL) received the first telemetry and scientific information from the Russian DAN instrument. The station was located at a distance from Earth of about 62 million km orbit on an interplanetary mission to Mars.

Switching on the appliance DAN is successful, the device worked for one hour without any problems and was nominally off on command. Temperature of the device at the time of inclusion of 20 degrees Celsius. Was included only block

Detection of explosives and narcotics, created at JINR, to determine the composition of substances in the spectrum of gamma radiation, which is emitted when neutrons hit. The system identifies more than 30 different explosives. Recognition is done automatically, without operator intervention; probability of identifying explosives up to 98%.

Ltd. "Neutron Technologies" at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR, Dubna, Moscow region) is implementing a project to expand the production of multi-purpose detectors
