Republic of Azerbaijan

General information on collaboration

The Republic of Azerbaijan, as a part of the USSR, joined JINR according to the agreement signed on 26 March 1956. As a sovereign republic, Azerbaijan has been member-state of JINR since 1992. However, there have been connections with the national scientific centers and scientists of Azerbaijan during the whole history of JINR.

At present, there are 21 specialists of Azerbaijan and members of their families working at JINR, though the main part of the collaborating scientists does the research in the institutes of Azerbaijan, using the methods and developments of JINR and going on business to Dubna.

Fruitful scientific collaboration of Azerbaijani physicists and JINR scientists continues to develop and gives an opportunity to the scientists of Azerbaijan for the development of direct contacts with the major accelerating centers in the world.

The scientists of Azerbaijan are mostly interested in the subject area of theVeksler and Baldin Laboratory of High Energy Physics and the Frank Laboratory of Neutron Physics of JINR. However, during the last two years there has appeared a tendency towards broadening of Azerbaijan interests in JINR: since 2008 the scientists of Azerbaijan have been working in the Laboratory of Information Technologies; since 2009 the interest in the Frank Laboratory of Neutron Physics has revived. These are the laboratories of JINR where the scientists of Azerbaijan are mostly sent to work.

Two of seven themes on which the collaboration is realized are the following international projects:

Within the bounds of the STAR project the collaborators of JINR from Azerbaijan E.I.Shahaliev and M.K.Suleimanov have worked out a new different method of analysis of experimental data. They take an active part in the work with the students from the member-states as well as with the students from Pakistan. At present M.K.Suleimanov is away on a long-term business trip in Pakistan.

Ovsat Abdinov collaborates with the colleagues from Dubna on the ATLAS project.

Members of the JINR Scientific Council

Ovsat Bahram oglu Abdinov, the head of the Laboratory for High Energy Physics of the Institute of Physics of the National Academy of Sciences of Azerbaijan is currently member of the Scientific Council of JINR

Major scientific achievements

The Monte Carlo model of the interaction of hadrons with the light nuclei was created. The mechanisms of production of cumulative nucleons in hadron-nuclear interactions were found. The data from a complete collapse of the nuclei in nucleus-nucleus interactions were obtained and analyzed.

National groups

The languages of international communication at JINR are Russian and English. However, one can hear the speech in many languages in Dubna, including the languages of JINR member-states when the countrymen, the representatives of the same expatriates’ community (the national groups of JINR), meet each other.

Over the years of existence of JINR the national groups have developed their traditions, forms of cooperation and collaboration with other national groups. Their leaders, appointed by the plenipotentiaries of the JINR member-states play an organizing role in the life of national groups.

Being in constant contact with plenipotentiaries, embassies of member-states, JINR’s directorate and management services, they take part in the solution of the problems connected with the stay of their colleagues-countrymen and their families in Russia, with the organization of their life and leisure.

The Council of the leaders of the national groups meets periodically. The representatives of the Directorate and the services of the Institute are invited to its meetings. The agenda includes the discussion of the urgent problems of the collaborators from the member-states. Due to this, the Directorate is able to make adequate decisions in time.

On the occasions of major public holidays of the member-states the national groups arrange receptions. These festive events are held accompanied by art exhibitions, photo exhibitions, and enrich JINR staff members’ knowledge about the member-states, their people and culture.
