Kharkiv scientists have developed unique materials, which have no analogues in the world

Detectors for major international projects in high-energy physics, which created an international team of scientists from the Institute for Scintillation Materials, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (Kharkiv), and the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (Dubna, Russia) have no analogues in the world.

  This writesUKRINFORMreferring to the deputy director of the Institute for Science and corresponding member of National Academy of Sciences Yuri Malyukina.

"Detection device based on plastic scintillators" — so the development, implementation at our institution, together with colleagues from Russia’s Joint Institute for Nuclear Research. Work continued during the 1992-2012 period. Its result was the unique detection devices for international projects for high-energy physics and astrophysics. During the research developed technology that can be used to develop diagnostic systems in medicine for the early detection of disease, as well as control systems for unauthorized movement of goods at customs checkpoints, "- said the scientist.

According to him, in 2013, a series of works on creation of unique materials and scintillation detectors based on them have been nominated for the State Prize of Ukraine in Science and Technology.

"Implementation of this series of works allowed Ukraine to participate in major international projects, the USA, France and Switzerland for the identification of elementary particles predicted by science, including the top quark, and a number of hypotheses to test quantum chromodynamics. In carrying out these experiments to obtain new fundamental results that are changing our global understanding of the organization of micro-and macrocosm, "- he added.
