TOMSK, Sep 14 – RIA Tomsk. Delegation of scientists of Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) delivered details necessary for upgrade of the track detector LHCb of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), which was made in TPU for experiments on research of conditions of matter after the Big Bang, press service of university reports.

Earlier it was reported that TPU became the associated member of collaboration of the experiment LHCb made on the LHC in CERN in 2016. LHCb is one of four main detectors on the LHC, is used for research of asymmetry of matter and anti-matter in interactions of b-quarks. Polytechnics work on modernization of the track detector LHCb as participants of the experiment.

"Polytechnics brought the first details of rail system of the track detector of LHCb to the center... Development of polytechnics will be involved in detector upgrade. The experiment LHCb is intended to answer one question – what processes operating after the Big Bang allowed matter to remain in (modern) look and why during evolution of the Universe anti-matter disappeared", – it is said in the statement.

It is specified that TPU takes part in modernization of the track detector SciFi Tracker which consists of 24 separate detectors. At the time of collision of particles and antiparticles detectors have to be located in strictly fixed place and position with an accuracy of micron, at the same time they have to move freely on the LHC perimeter. For this purpose the suspended system, rails and the chassis is developed in TPU.

"One of CERN tasks is search of the answer to fundamental questions of the universe and formation of the Universe, expansion of ideas of the world and elementary "particles" from which matter, mechanisms of their interaction is arranged. This new knowledge is necessary for global technological and social development of humanity", – the press service quotes the rector of TPU Petr Chubik.

In addition, it is reported that Chubik working as a part of delegation met the CERN director for Research and Computing Eckhard Elsen. During the meeting, they discussed the first results of cooperation of TPU with CERN collaborations and the following steps of involvement of students and graduate students in physics of high energy.
