Physics Department of NSU Approved New Disciplines for Training Specialists for SKIF

2 December 2021

The academic board of Department of Physics of Novosibirsk State University (DP NSU) approved introduction of three new disciplines into the study program. They are aimed at the training of specialists for the Shared Research Facility “Siberian Circular Photon Source” of Boreskov Institute of Catalysis. The classes will be given by the researchers of SRF “SKIF”.

In September, 2022, the master’s students of DP NSU will be able to include new disciplines into their schedule: “Basics for designing beamlines at the mega-science plants”, “Physical methods of studying solid body with the use of synchrotron radiation”, “Important topics of studies at the mega-science plants”.

The first two courses are intended for the master’s students who have no previous training in the subject of synchrotron studies. These disciplines will be given in parallel in the first semester. The seminar of the important topics of studies at the mega-science plants will start in the second semester. Within its framework the invited scientists will give their lectures on practical problems that are solved by the global science with the use of synchrotron radiation. This seminar can be joined by the post-graduate students.

“It is important for us to enhance the general understanding of capacities of synchrotron radiation. During bachelor’s studies at various areas the students study different fields of physics (physics of elementary particles, physics of semiconductors, physics of plasma, chemical physics, biomedicine physics, etc.), but they do not get sufficient information on the methods that can be used for solving the specialized problems. The new disciplines will widen the horizons of our master’s students and help in their research”, said Dr. Prof. Sergey Tsybulya, vice dean of DP on education..

Besides the master’s students of DP the students from other departments of NSU can join the courses in future.

“Collaboration with NSU as one of the basic universities for training specialists for SKIF is a strategic task, because by 2024 the Siberian Circular Photon Source will need 350-400 employees for maintaining the accelerator complex and organization of studies at the beamlines. We also need to train specialists who will design new SKIF beamlines: by 2030 there are planned to be 30 of them, but this is not a final number. A no less important task is to establish a mass academic society that straight from university will learn the vast capacities of the synchrotron studies for their areas of expertise. These are chemistry, physics, biology, geology, materials science, archeology, and other sciences. It is for them this global project is being created”, underlines Dr. Evgeniy Levichev, Director of SRF “SKIF”.

The future specialists for working in SRF “SKIF” will be also trained in Novosibirsk State Technical University (NSTU), universities of Krasnoyarsk, Tomsk, and other cities in Russia.


Info: Shared Research Facility “Siberian Circular Photon Source” of Boreskov Institute of Catalysis is a mega-science project with synchrotron of 4+ generation that is being constructed in Koltsovo, science town in Novosibirsk region.

The unique characteristics of the new synchrotron will allow conducting the cutting-edge studies with bright and intensive beams of X-ray radiation in many areas – chemistry, physics, materials science, biology, geology, the humanities. Also SKIF would help to solve the important problems of innovative and industrial enterprises.

Siberian Circular Photon Source is established within the National Project “Nauka i Universitety” (“Science and Universities”) for developing a modern network of sources of synchrotron radiation of new generation in Russia.
