IX School of Polarized Neutron Physics "FPN-2020" is being
held on December 10-11, 2020 at the National Research Center
"Kurchatov Institute" - PNPI jointly with St. Petersburg
State University with the support of the European Commission project
grant agreement No. 871072 CREMLINplus.
The School Polarized Neutron Physics is held at PNPI NRC KI annually since 2012 and is associated with the names of Soviet and Russian physicists Prof. Giliari Drabkin and Prof. Sergey Maleev. These two outstanding scientists inspired and originated the condensed matter research at the Institute, specifically with the help of polarized neutrons. They are considered to be the Founding Fathers of the Polarized Neutron School in Gatchina. The trailblazing scientific works of Dr. Drabkin, Dr. Maleev and one more distinguished PNPI scientist Dr. Alexey Okorokov in the field of polarized neutrons laid the groundwork for a wide range of scientific investigations worldwide, as well as for their application at the PIK neutron facility. The created experimental and theoretical advance is inspirational up to the present, combining the efforts of scientists of the Condensed Matter Department and the Solid-state Physics Sector of the Theoretical Physics Division of PNPI NRC KI.
The purpose of the school is to promote the activity of the Russian scientific community in the area of polarized neutron research and get young scientists involved into the scientific research.
The School will be held at B.P. Konstantinov Petersburg Nuclear Physics Institute (PNPI) of the National Research Center “Kurchatov Institute” from 10 to 12 December 2020.
