Its quadrupole lens.
This staircase leads to the underground floors of Building 13.
Today, the BINP is planning to build a c-tau factory that will become the largest project in Russian fundamental physics of the last several decades and again it is a matter of financing.
A GOL-3 (corrugated open trap) and GDL (gas-dynamic trap) are two main plasma physics installations.
The situation with plasma physics is tight because a lot of plasma physics specialists have moved to other countries.
The GOL-3 generators.
The so called probkotron.
The GOL-3 looks very impressing and futuristic.
The GDL is relatively small and was designed to study plasma.
An injector for the VEPP-3. It is one of the oldest installations of its kind in the world.
The blue cylinder on the left is the linear accelerator. On the right there is a synchrotron B4.
The VEPP-3 ring.
This is a bird eye view of the VEPP-4 complex. Down there, there are concrete blocks which protect workers from radiation. That blue box is its control center.
Svyatoslav Mishnev heads the VEPP-3. He is one of the oldest accelerator physics of the institute and the country.
Workers of the BINP.
One of the departments of the BINP.
This sign warning you about radiation means that one of the accelerators is on and consequently presents danger.
This VEP-1 is the first collider built in 1963.
