CIS : Novosibirsk and Kazakhstan nuke centres to build synchrotronThe Novosibirsk Institute of Nuclear Physics and Kazakhstan's national nuclear centre have signed an agreement on joint construction of a synchrotron radiation generator, the deputy head of the Russian Academy of Sciences' Siberian department, Gennady Kulipanov, told on Friday.
"According to preliminary estimates, the synchrotron's construction is estimated at 80 million euros," he said.
It will take five years to build the generator.
Synchrotron can be used to produce new materials for the aerospace industry. In medicine synchrotron radiation can help diagnose the early stage of disease and during treatment transport medicines to the relevant organ, Kazinform cites Itar-Tass.
Synchrotron is irreplaceable in the creation of newest medicines for early detection and treatment of cancer and in the diagnostics of vascular diseases.
The Novosibirsk Institute of Nuclear Physics is one of the world's leaders in the development and construction of synchrotron radiation generators of different types. Researchers of the institute produced electron accelerators that generate synchrotron radiation for research centres of Switzerland, Japan and South Korea.
