Road map in the field of nuclear physics at the JINR (draft)
The scientific program in the field of nuclear physics with neutrons will be implemented using existing neutron sources at JINR (IBR-2, EG-5) and other Russian and foreign neutron centers.
Experimental activity will be concentrated on the topics, which are most important for the modern nuclear physics, both in fundamental and applied research fields:
Nuclear Physics with Neutrons
Most important issues:
To accomplish these tasks the FLNR Cyclotron Complex will be developed for producing intense beams of accelerated ions of stable (48Ca, 58Fe, 64Ni, 86Kr) and radioactive (6He, 8He) isotopes. The U-400 and U-400M cyclotrons will be reconstructed; the facility DRIBS will be developed to be employed in the work; the set-up MASHA will be put into operation.
Search in Nature
Chemical properties(relativistic effect)
Astrophysics(search for SHE in cosmic rays)
Nucleosynthesis (test of the r-s process)
Atomic physics(structure of SH-atoms)
Elements with Z ≥ 120
Low energy beam acceleration and extraction
The future research programme in the field of low and intermediate energy physics will arise from the modern trends in this field with the utilization of experimental facilities and nuclear physics techniques that have been created in the DLNP up to now.
Low and Intermediate Energy Physics
The fundamental research will be concentrated on the following topics:
The scientific programme of BLTP in the field of nuclear theory will be concern with theoretical understanding of the nuclear many-body system. Many essential questions will be addressed to the nuclear structure and dynamics, nuclear astrophysics.
Much of what we know about nuclei, their structure and dynamics comes from nuclear reactions. Since many-body reaction models do not exist, a synthesis between microscopic structure theory and reaction must be made to incorporated and imbed the important few-body and many-body correlations into the reaction matrix elements.
The study of symmetries in nuclei and how these symmetries can be broken will give guidelines to how to unify the large body of present knowledge.
In many of the astrophysical models nuclear theory has to bridge a gap between experimental data and astrophysical application.
The strategy of the BLTP is close collaboration with the JINR experimental groups.
