TOMSK, Feb 6 –
RIA Tomsk. Tomsk State University (TSU) will open two new
laboratories in the field of machine analysis of astronomical data and quantum
information technologies at the expense of grants from the Ministry of
Education and Science; funds for the creation and equipping of laboratories
will begin to arrive at TSU in 2020, the university’s press service said.
University is among the universities whisch projects for the creation of new
laboratories were supported by the Ministry of Education and Science of the
Russian Federation. The grants are designed for four years, the first tranches
will come to the university this year. This will help the university to create
two laboratories – computer simulation and machine analysis of astronomical
data and a laboratory of quantum information technology", – is said in the
It is noted that
the laboratory of computer modeling and machine analysis of astronomical data
of TSU will work in conjunction with the Terskol Observatory, located in the
Elbrus region of Kabardino-Balkaria. The laboratory will focus on computer
simulation and machine analysis of the behavior of asteroids, artificial
satellites and space debris.

The work of the
second new laboratory will be associated with quantum cryptography and quantum
computing. Currently, quantum cryptography is considered one of the most
reliable ways to protect information, notes the report of the university.
all, it will be fundamental research. But on the material base we created,
device prototypes, we will try to adapt the already known algorithms of quantum
key distribution and quantum computing. Of course, in addition to basic
research, we are focused on the practical application of new devices", – the
press service quotes the head of the laboratory Evgeny Lipatov.
It is planned
that both laboratories will reach their design capacity within four years.
However, the first money tranches from the Ministry of Education and Science,
and, accordingly, the first purchases of laboratory equipment, will begin in

the "Science" national project is being implemented in the Russian
Federation. Its key goals – are to ensure the presence of the Russian
Federation among the five leading countries of the world engaged in research
and development in areas defined by the priorities of the scientific and
technological revolution, ensure the attractiveness of work in the Russian
Federation for leading Russian and foreign scientists, increase domestic
spending on research and development.
three projects: "Development of scientific and research and production
cooperation", "Development of advanced infrastructure for research
and development in the Russian Federation" and "Development of human
resources in the field of research and development".
