Novosibirsk, March 17 – Scientists of Tomsk Polytechnic University together with partners have completed the first stage of work on setting up a station for studying “mega” micro-objects at the Siberian Ring Photon Source (SKIF) facility, TPU reports on Friday.
The “Microfocus” station is the first in the internal numbering of the project and the third to start production at the SKIF station. Thanks to the advanced X-ray beam focusing system, it will allow the study of micro-objects up to 200 nanometers in size, and its specialization will be X-ray microscopy and microimaging, combined with high-resolution X-ray scanning analysis and structural studies of crystals under high pressure. The total weight of the future installation is more than 120 tons, and its cost is estimated at more than 1 billion rubles.
“At the moment, we have completed the preliminary design phase of the future station, including the creation of a 3D model of the installation with all scientific equipment, restraining structures and engineering networks. The next step will be the development of design documentation and design of each element of the station, as well as the development of control programs ”- said Alexey Gogolev, director of the Research School of High Energy Process Physics at TPU.

Work on the construction of the station is carried out in cooperation with a group of the Scientific and Educational Center for Advanced Studies of Tomsk Polytechnic University, Novosibirsk State Technical University (NSTU), the Institute of Physics of Fine Structures of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Geology and Mineralogy named after him. against. Sobolev, Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Tomsk Polytechnic University operates as an integrated.
SKIF is a 4+ generation source of synchrotron radiation with an energy of 3 GeV. The customer and developer of the project is the Boreskov Institute of Catalysis of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. SKIF is being created within the framework of the national project “Sciences and Universities” as the first link in the modern Russian network of new generation synchrotron radiation sources. The vast project is spread on a plot of 30 hectares, the circumference of the main ring of the accelerator is 480 meters. Initially, its cost was 37.2 billion rubles, but due to high prices for materials, today it has increased to 47.3 billion rubles. The only outlet for the manufacture and launch of technically complex equipment for SKIF is the Institute of Nuclear Physics. GI Budker SB RAS.
The launch of SKIF will give scientists the opportunity to gain new knowledge about the structure and properties of matter at the micro and nano levels. This will help solve a number of urgent problems in biology, medicine, chemistry and energy. The main construction of the objects of the “massive” installation will be launched this year at the Koltsovo Science City near Novosibirsk.
