High Energy Physics at BINP, Novosibirsk

Alexander Undrus (Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics, Novosibirsk, Russia)


Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics (BINP) is one of the leading 
centers of Colliding Beams and High Energy Physics in the world. 
The Institute has two electron-positron storage rings: VEPP-2M 
with the magnetic detector CMD-2 and the neutral particle detector 
SND working in the energy region of phi meson, and VEPP-4M with 
the universal detector KEDR working in in the energy region of 
Upsilon mesons. The experiments on these installations allow to 
detect rare decays of omega and phi mesons, perform precise 
measurements of two photon processes, study properties of Upsilon 
mesons. BINP actively participates in international projects.
The institution is responsible for manufacturing of CSI crystalls
for the calorimeter of the BELLE detector (Japan), software 
developing for the BaBAr(USA), LHC(Switzerland) experiments.
