Russia in FAIR

The Russian Federation signed the FAIR Convention on 4 October 2010 in Wiesbaden and declared its contribution to the FAIR construction to be 178.05 M Euro.

The State Atomic Energy Corporation "Rosatom", who is the Russian funding agency in FAIR, has established a legal body called Scientific and Technical Committee (STC) for FAIR to organize the Russian activities in the FAIR GmbH. The STC consists of 15 well-known Russian physicists from Russian participating institutes and chaired by Prof. A. Vasiliev from Institute for High Energy Physics, Protvino.

The Russian institutions participate in construction of all FAIR accelerators.

The Russia is responsible for the development and delivery of many key components within the FAIR experiments:

  • E.g. within CBM project Russia is involved in Silicon Tracker, RICH, superconducting dipole, TOF, ECAL, MUCH, etc.
  • In PANDA project Russia participates in construction of superconducting solenoid, ECAL, DIRC, MUON, TOF, pellet target, etc.
  • Seven Russian institutions contribute to the NUSTAR project, namely to R3B, MATS, ILIMA, EXL and ELISe experiments.
  • The Russia is a major participant of the HEDgeHOB experiment.
