Ukraine

General information on collaboration

The Republic of Ukraine, as a part of the USSR, joined JINR since its foundation according to the agreement signed on 26 March 1956.

Ukraine has been a JINR Member State since 1991. Boris V. Grinev was appointed as representative of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine at the Committee of Plenipotentiaries of the Governments of the JINR Member States (according to the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine №1158 of 15 December 2010). At that moment, he was First Deputy Chairman of the State Agency for Science, Innovations and Informatization of Ukraine (Gosinformnauki).

According to the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine №178 of 08.04.2015, the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine is the main central executive body responsible for discharge of duties deriving from the Ukraine membership in JINR.

JINR is an associate member of the International Association of the Academy of Sciences headed by the President of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) of Ukraine Academician B.E. Paton. Cooperation between the Junior Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (JASU) and JINR is being actively developed. An agreement on professional training of Ukrainian lecturers, training of students and postgraduates in the fields of natural sciences signed in 2011 aided this. Nowadays, cooperation is developed in the following fields:

  • Scientific schools for teaching staff on the basis of JINR. The school programme includes attendance of teachers at seminars, lectures, scientific video-conferences in Dubna, laboratories of the Institute; excursions to technical complexes of the Institute and video-conferences with CERN scientists with participation of Ukrainian and Russian physicists as well as partnership and exchange of experience;
  • Attendance of Ukrainian teachers and school students at forums on the basis of JINR. Holding round tables on issues of modern problems in physics and methods of teaching at school, presentations of school students at the mini-conference;
  • Exchange of experience and methodological developments, collaborative development of educational, methodical and programme materials to support the educational process;
  • Teleconferences between JINR scientists and JASU members.

The Bogoliubov Programme of theoretical physics was launched in 2011. As a part of this programme, lectures, practical studies and school practices on high energy physics are annually held here. This programme is focused on implementation of collaborative research and academic projects of JINR and Ukrainian scientific institutions of fundamental fields of theoretical physics. The programme also promotes academic mobility of young scientists, postgraduates and masters of Ukraine and JINR.

The cooperation between JINR and the Physical Department of the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv (KNU) actively develops. Collaborative research on condensed matter physics is conducted at the Frank Laboratory of Neutron Physics, including the analysis of the structure and physical and chemical properties of actual nanosystems: magnetic liquids, surfactant solutions, fullerene solutions, nanodiamond dispersions. In this area of research, a graduation practice and further KNU postgraduate’s work in FLNP are organised together with the JINR University Centre. As a part of cooperation, 7 Ph.D. theses were defended, about 100 scientific works were published in peer-reviewed international journals.

The Bogoliubov Institute for Theoretical Physics of NAS in Kyiv also cooperates with JINR. Academician Nikolai N. Bogoliubov was the founder and the first Director of this Institute. A specific character of JINR cooperation with this Institute is defined by mutual scientific school – the Bogoliubov school. There is a regular Bogoliubov conference “Problems of Theoretical and Mathematical Physics”. Collaborative work on creatin and development of the GRID-infrastructure of ITP, which is the main organisation in the Ukrainian academic GRID, is supported with the grant of Plenipotentiary Representative of the Government of Ukraine in JINR.

For many years, active cooperation with Ukraine develops in the fields of scintillation detectors creation, which are developed in the Institute for Scintillation Materials (ISM) and in the Scientific-Technological Complex “The Institute of Single Crystals” of NAS. In these centres, new materials (crystals and plastics successfully used in experiments on particle physics and nuclear physics) are created under the direction of famous Ukrainian scientists B.V. Grinev and B.P. Seminozhenko. In particular, scientists from Dubna, Ukraine, Slovakia, Italy and the USA developed detectors with reradiate fibers in the framework of the CDF collaborative scientific project in the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab, The USA). Ionization radiation detectors created basing on Ukrainian scintillators were tested and installed in Fermilab by the Dubna team of Professor J.A. Budagov, where its high quality was aknowledged.

The important task was fulfilled as a part of the OPERA experiment, where more than 20000 scintillator plates each 7m of length were installed for the system of electronic interaction vertex indication. They were produced using the developed specially for this purpose technology. All developments, production, tests and plate assembling were done together with the team of four scientists from JINR under the supervision of Yu.A. Gornushkin and A.G. Olshevsky. Development of this unique detector system provided a serious creative and material JINR contribution to the OPERA international experiment on search for neutrino oscillations.

Special plastic, scintillation detectors in Dubna and Paris were made of, was also produced in Ukraine for the NEMO neutrino experiment, and the unique crystals developed and produced in ISM are used today in the experiment on search for rare decays of mesons at the accelerator in Zurich (Switzerland).

It is important that in the experiments mentioned above Ukraine contributed to JINR not financially, but by new unique materials and technologies.

Cooperation between the Department of Nuclear Physics and Energy of NAS of Ukraine and JINR is strengthening. The Institute of Electrophysics and Radiation Technologies NAS of Ukraine with the Flerov Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions and the Frank Laboratory of Neutron Physics perform collaborative research on radiation solid state physics. The group of staff members of the Institute for Nuclear Research of NAS of Ukraine carries out theoretical calculations of diffraction of hyperon interaction with nuclei for experiments conducted at the Veksler and Baldin Laboratory of High Energy Physics. Theoretical research is being carried out in cooperation with the National Scientific Centre “Kharkov Physical and Technical Institute” NAS of Ukraine. The research is connected with experiments with the use of polarised beams and polarised targets of high energy physics and improvement works of these systems. The cooperation of JINR and KPTI in the fields of grid-technologies was supported by two grants of RFBR-NAS of Ukraine:

  1. “Preparation of computing complexes of LIT JINR (Dubna) and KPTI to distributed data analysis of the CMS experiment (CERN) on the grid-technology basis” – 08-07-90410-Ukraine (2008-2009). As a result of the project’s implementation, all necessary conditions for distributed CMS experiment data analysis were provided at the JINR computing complexes (Dubna) and at KPTI, that makes full participation of Russian and Ukrainian physicists in the CMS experiment on its active stage possible.
  2. “Development and support of grid-technology LIT JINR and KPTI for distributed CMS experiment data processing (CERN) during the first two years of the Large Hadron Collider operation” 10-07-90400-Ukraine (2010-2011), accepted in 2010. The project’s goal is to provide use of the computing grid-structure of LIT JINR and KPTI in processing of the experimental data obtained int he CMS experiment during the first two years of the LHC operation. It includes providing of reliability and stability of operation of the computing complexes of LIT JINR and KPTI as WLCG elements and T2-sites of the CMS experiment. The project includes also development and modernisation of these complexes according to the changing CMS collaboration requirements for computing organisation, and creation and adjustment of data analysis algorithms of this experiment for search of “new physics”.

Active participation of Ukrainian scientist in launch of the NICA mega-science project should be mentioned. The project “Complex NICA” is a world leader in research on heavy nuclei physics of high energy. More than 300 scientists from 70 institutes of 32 countries already take part in project’s preparation.

The aim of this project is to carry out fundamental research, which is impossible at other world accelerating centres, focused, first of all, on study of superdense nuclear substance that existed in the early evolution stage of the Universe and in neutron star bosoms. The project is also focused on a wide range of innovation and applied work. In the course of carrying out experiments in the frames of the NICA project, foreign specialists will not be able to go without the opportunities that Ukraine can provide:

There are specialists in Ukraine who have experience in numerous projects on high energy physics that were implemented within international collaborations in Switzerland, Germany, Japan and other countries over the past years. Ukraine also has technological capabilities that are implemented and brought to specific product samples and will be in demand in the experiments of the NICA project. Such unique technological base exists only in Ukraine and gives a great advantage to Ukrainian scientists.

The Ukrainian industry delivers detectors based on plastic scintillators, microcables used in detectors of the Large Hadron Collider in CERN. Participation in the NICA project allows Ukraine to restore and widen fragments of the microelectronic base that has early existed in Ukraine, and to promote changes in the educational system of Ukraine thus training specialists whose level of knowledge will match that of the world one.

Annually, JINR Plenipotentiary Representative of Ukraine in JINR B.V. Grinev conducts interviews and sends high-skilled experts to work at the Institute as a part of cooperation with JINR. At present, 25 people sent from Ukraine work in JINR. Holding of the annual report seminar was initiated by Plenipotentiary Representative of the Government of Ukraine in order to sum up the milestones of work done by JINR staff members from Ukraine. In the frames of this seminar, JINR staff members from Ukraine provide detailed reports on individual achievements made during the report period of work at JINR, including scientific works published and accepted for publication, participation in scientific conferences on the corresponding research themes and personal work plans for the future.

In 2013, the collaborative research of young scientists from the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv and JINR was awarded the Prize of the Ukranian President.
