Project summaryThe goal of the project is to compose a monograph, describing and classifying for the first time methods using different corpuscular (fiber, foil, gas, beam, plasma, etc.) and photon (formed with laser radiation) internal targets for physics experiments on accelerators. The possibilities of these methods will be considered for solving a wide variety of problems dealing with the study of the structure of accelerated ions and nuclei, change in their charge and quantum states, forming of other particle fluxes, and to obtain new data about integral and differential cross-sections of atomic and nuclear interactions. For the first time different methods and devices using internal targets for nonperturbative diagnostics of particle beams over a wide energy range (up to relativistic ones) will be collected and described in detail. The development technology of these internal targets and control over their characteristics in the course of experiment will be considered. A considerable part of the monograph is based on original developments of the author and his colleagues.
A final electronic version of the manuscript, ready for publication, and its editing, will be produced by the staff of the Publishing Department of the Leading Institution, the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research.
This monograph is necessary, primarily, because this trend becomes important for the technique of the physics experiment and owing to the fact that the above information is dispersed and presented as inventions and patents, published in different journals, preprints, proceedings of international conferences and schools. Thus, this book will be useful to train specialists in modern experimental physics in accelerated particle beams and to develop elements of accelerator-storage facilities for fundamental and applied problems, such as for isotope production, building high-intensity neutron generators for radioactive waste transmutation, and to obtain energy using an electronuclear method.
The greater part of the work will be carried out by the author and other former employees of the Sukhumi Physics-Technical Institute (Abkhazia refugees) involved with the development and maintenance of installations for military space programs. Thus, the project complies with the aims of the ISTC to convert the skills of these specialists to peaceful activities.
Cooperation with foreign collaborators within the project will be performed through information exchange at different stages of work, during examination of the results, consultations on some parts of the monograph, and at submitting comments on intervening reports. This will provide for a more complete presentation of the issue and for integration of the project participants into the international scientific community.
