The winter school on high energy density physics was held at the Educational Center “New Snezhinsk” from February 25 to March 1. Its participants were 49 students from Russian flagship universities of the Educational Center, including the National Research Nuclear University “MEPhI” (Moscow Engineering Physics Institute), Novosibirsk State University and the Ural Federal University. 13 students took part in the Winter School for the first time Faculty of Physics of NSU.

— The educational program of the Winter School was very diverse and rich: students listened to lectures on radiography as a way to study fast gas-dynamic processes; on the use of laser-plasma accelerators at RFNC-VNIITF; on the study of the spectra of nonequilibrium line radiation of multiply charged ions in a picosecond laser plasma; about modern materials science and special materials and other interesting reports. They were told about computer modeling of the properties of materials, high-performance calculations for solving modern problems in mathematical physics, and three-dimensional numerical modeling of problems in plasma physics, turbulent mixing, and the transition of combustion to detonation on a modern computing complex. The excursion program of the Winter School was extensive and informative. We visited the experimental facilities of the RFNC-VNIITF (Russian Federal Nuclear Center – All-Russian Research Institute of Technical Physics named after Academician E.I. Zababakhin). Participants of the Winter School visited production sites and the Center for Laser Physics Research of the RFNC-VNIITF. It was very interesting for us to visit the pulsed tomography complex (PIT), which is being built with the active participation of scientists from the BINP SB RAS. Here we met familiar research fellows from the Nuclear Physics Institute and were able to communicate with them. During the excursion program, our students demonstrated a high level of knowledge in various areas of physics – not only in plasma physics, semiconductor physics and optics, but also in other areas. Employees of the RFNC-VNIITF noted the interest of students of the Faculty of Physics of NSU in scientific research and decent preparation, said Roman Spitsyn, Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Physics of NSU for Master’s Degree.

In their free time from educational and excursion programs, the Winter School participants were able to informally communicate with RFNC-VNIITF specialists and ask them all their questions.

The final day of the Winter School was devoted to student presentations on scientific work. The audience, which included RFNC-VNIITF researchers, was presented by 2 students from National Research Nuclear University MEPhI and 7 students from NSU: Alexey Vopilovsky (bachelor’s degree, 4th year, Department of Chemical and Biological Physics), Daniil Gavrisenko (Master’s degree, 2nd year, Department of Plasma Physics) , Konstantin Kolesnichenko (Master’s degree, 2nd year, Department of Plasma Physics), Andrey Snegirev (Master’s degree, 2nd year, Department of Semiconductor Physics), Nadezhda Solovova (Master’s degree, 1st year, Department of Semiconductor Physics), Artem Chetverikov (Master’s degree, 1st year, Department of Chemical Engineering -biological physics) and Anna Shuklina (bachelor’s degree, 4th year, department of accelerator physics).

A highlight for the Winter School participants was a visit to the RFNC-VNIITF Museum of Nuclear Weapons, where the children saw prototype prototypes of devices used to carry out peaceful nuclear explosions to extinguish emergency gas fountains, perform geological exploration or create underground storage tanks. They were shown the most valuable exhibits of the museum – the keys to the towers of the Semipalatinsk test site, where the first Soviet atomic and thermonuclear charges were tested, the body of the most powerful thermonuclear aerial bomb – the “Tsar Bomb”, also known as the legendary “Kuzkina Mother”, as well as the first Soviet aviation adopted hydrogen bomb.

— NSU is one of the supporting universities of the Educational Center “New Snezhinsk”, so our students can come here for internships, work on their master’s theses, and then, if desired, stay to work here. Master’s studies will follow an individual path, while the students remain students at their universities. They are given access to a wide range of additional training. Here, master’s students will be able to carry out their research under the guidance of researchers at the experimental facilities of the RFNC-VNIITF. The organizers of the Winter School hope that NSU students will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity, and I would like to say a big thank you to the organizers for this high-level event,” noted Roman Spitsyn.
