Republic of Azerbaijan

General information on collaboration

The Republic of Azerbaijan, as part of USSR, joined JINR having signed an agreement on 26 March 1956. As a sovereign republic, Azerbaijan has been a member-state of JINR since 1992. But national science centers and scientists in Azerbaijan have collaborated with JINR throughout its history.

21 specialists from Azerbaijan and members of their families are currently working at JINR, though most collaborating scientists conduct their research at institutes in Azerbaijan, applying methods developed at JINR, and travelling to Dubna when required.

Scientific collaboration of physicists from Azerbaijan and JINR scientists continues to evolve, and gives an opportunity to Azerbaijani scientists to develop contacts with major accelerator centers around the world.

Azerbaijani scientists’ research interests are centered around the subject area of Veksler and Baldin Laboratory of High Energy Physics and of the Frank Laboratory of Neutron Physics at JINR. In the past two years, however, these research interests have been broadening: since 2008 scientists from Azerbaijan have been working in the Laboratory of Information Technologies, and since 2009 interest in the work done at Frank Laboratory of Neutron Physics has revived. These are the laboratories at JINR where scientists from Azerbaijan primarily work.

The following international projects represent two of the seven topics on which collaboration is focused :  

  As part of the STAR project, collaborators at JINR from Azerbaijan E.I.Shahaliev and M.K.Suleimanov have developed a new method of analysis of experimental data. They provide a lot of  support to students from member states, as well as to students from Pakistan. Currently 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.

Plenipotentiary representative

The Plenipotentiary representative of the government of the Republic of Azerbaijan in JINR from 2017 to the present day is Nazim Timur oglu Mamedov, Academician, Academician-Secretary of the Physical, Mathematical and Technical Division of the Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences, Director of the Institute of Physics (ANAS).

Nazim Timur oglu Mamedov was born on November 5, in 1953, in Baku. In 1975, he was graduated from the National University of Science and Technology “MiSiS” (formerly Moscow Institute of Steel and Alloys), in the specialty of “Semi-conductor and Dielectric”. In 1981, he got his philosophy degree, and in 1991 doctoral degree in Physics and Mathematics. In 2014, he was elected as the correspondent member of the Azerbaijan National Academy of Science. From 2013 till present, N.Mamedov has been the head of the Institute of Physics of the ANAS. In addition, in 2015, he was elected as an academician-secretary of the Physical. Mathematical and Technical department of ANAS.

N.T.Mamedov also is the chairman of the International Committee Conference of ICIMC and the member of the Japanese Society of the Applied Physics.

He has 4 certificates of copyrights and 2 patents in Japan.

Main scientific achievements:

  1. There has been developed and evaluated a node variety of news methods coherent and spectroscopic ellipsometry, allowing all 4 stokes parameters necessary for complete description of light nova state to be taken.
  2. There has been developed and evaluated a news analytical approach to the spectroscopy of light figures on the node variety of familiar optical and anisotropic materials. The given approach enables the relation of group and phase velocity of light waves in the medium to be determined. There has been made prediction and shown experimentally effect of collapse of light figures to zero in the medium of spatial dispersion of 1st order.
  3. On the base of quantum-mechanical calculations from the principles and regression analysis of spectroscopic phase-modulated ellipsometry data there has been surely recovered interband state density for optical transitions and dielectric function of need material class.
  4. By using peculiarities of thioqallat chalcogenides of various metals the basis for crating unique solid state laser of optical pumping and continuously tunable frequency in the range spreading violet and green regions of spectrum are developed.
  5. There has been revealed a node variety of materials of giant photo-thermo-deformation effect for crystal solid states. There has been developed the actuator controlled by light impulses of low amplitude and converting light energy to mechanical linear motions at a distance of nanometer up to several microns.
  6. As an example of familiar bismuth chalcoqenide semiconductors topological occupied states nearby Fermi level there has been shown the existence of high-lying unoccupied electron states of helical spin texture being characteristic of states topologically scatter-proofed from nonmagnetic defects and impurities.

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.
  • Javadov Namik Ali Jawad oglu The head of the national group of Azerbaijan, leading researcher of the Veksler and Baldin Laboratory of High Energy Physics of JINR

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.
