NSU and The Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics (SB RAS) have presented their research findings at a major international conference on high energy physics
Specialists from NSU and the Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Science (BINP SB RAS) have taken part to the 38th conference on high energy physics which was held in Chicago (ICHEP-2016). The head of NSU and BINP Research Laboratories, Ivan Logashenko, has presented data produced at the VEPP-2000 electron-positron collider that are significant for the theoretical calculation of the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon.
The largest international conference in the field of high energy physics (The International Conference on High Energy Physics) is biennial and gathers researchers in particle physics and related scientific areas. The 38th ICHEP was held in Chicago from the 3rd to the 10th August 2016 and around 1,300 people attended it.

Representing NSU and BINP SB RAS, Ivan Logashenko, Head of the Physic-technical Informatics Chair of the NSU Physics Department, Head of the NSU Laboratory Researching Interactions Beyond the Standard Model in Experiments with Muons at Fermilab, has made a report presenting results of experiments on the VEPPP-2000. Four specialists from the Budker Institute and NSU lecturers have also made presentations related to various issues regarding the creation of accelerator facilities and the development of accelerator-based technologies.

- "The report was dedicated to the measurements being conducted on the VEPP-2000 electron-positron collider with CMD-3 and SND detectors at the Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics. I have presented an overview of current results obtained with both detectors and talked about the measurement of strongly interacting particles (hadrons) production cross-section during electron-positron annihilation. The measurement of this value in the attainable energy range on the VEPP-2000 arouses strong interest. In order to obtain results we have to conduct a whole series of experiments. When electron–positron annihilation occurs, many different combinations of strongly interacting particles are created. We study each of these combinations separately, which allows us to calculate the total probability of hadron production in this process.

The report about studies being conducted on the VEPP-2000 was presented in the section that discussed the measurement of the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon. According to Ivan Logashenko, an experiment to study this value will start at Fermilab next year and will continue for several years. NSU and BINP are taking part to this experiment.

-"The anomalous magnetic moment of the muon allows estimating how complete our understanding of basic laws of Physics is, and whether or not other forces than those described in the Standard Model exist. This value is unique as it can be with high accuracy experimentally measured, as well as theoretically calculated," says Ivan Logashenko.
