On July 17-21

From 17 to 21 July researcher Vadim Vedin is participating in 10th JUNO Collaboration Meeting held at the Institute of High Energy Physics in Beijing and presenting the IECS proposal for cooperation. The Institute proposes to address the measurement equipment synchronization issues in JUNO, using the high-precision time interval measurement technology developed in IECS.

On the basis of this proposal, the JUNO Institutional Board has granted IECS a full collaboration member status in JUNO (see http://juno.ihep.ac.cn/collaboration.php).

JUNO (Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory (see http://juno.ihep.cas.cn/) is an international project initiated by China for creation of observatory for neutrino studies, in particular, to determine neutrino mass hierarchy and precisely measure oscillation parameters by detecting reactor neutrinos from the Yangjiang and Taishan Nuclear Power Plants, observe supernova neutrinos, study the atmospheric, solar neutrinos and geo-neutrinos, and perform exotic searches using a 20-thousand-ton liquid scintillator detector of unprecedented 3% energy resolution (at 1 MeV) at 700-meters deep underground. At present already 72 leading research organizations dealing with particle physics from all over the world are participating in this project. IECS will design specialized event timers for  obtaining accurate times of events on a time scale that is synchronized with UTC (Time Scale Coordinated).
