Cosmic Ray Division Young Researchers Make International Impact

Three of the researchers from Cosmic Ray Division of Yerevan Physics Institute, Levon Vanyan, Tigran Karapetyan and Hripsime Mkrtchyan will participate in international meetings presenting and discussing CRD research results. From 27th of April through 02 of May, in Vienna, Austria, Levon Vanyan will participate in the European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly.  AGU brings together scientists from all over the world to one forum to discuss new developments in all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. Levon’s presentation is titled “The Origin of Thunderstorm Ground Enhancements (TGEs): Energy Spectra Analysis”. Tigran Karapetyan will travel to Sozopol, Bulgaria to take part in the Solar Influences on the Magnetosphere, Ionosphere and Atmosphere conference to be held from May 26... read more
National lab physicists launch High Energy Atmospheric Research station on the shore of Sevan lake

 Last week Arakelyan Karen, Reymers Artur, Hanikyanc Gena, Daryan Ara and Rushanyan Geim visited YePhI summer hotel on  Sevan lake to launch long awaiting High Energy Atmospheric Research (HEAR) station. Special thanks to staff of the Sevan summer hotel staff leading by Hamayak Dganikyan for repairing of HEAR building!   Figure 1. HEAR monitors: STAND1 and NaI particle detectors are measuring 1-minute time series (in the right); electronics and control equipment send data on-line each minute to Yerevan CRD headquarters (on the table).    HEAR is equipped with modern elementary particle detection system measuring cosmic ray electrons, muons and gamma rays. The electric mill is monitoring the electric field above the lake... read more
New students join CRD

  Several students from Yerevan State Unviersity who have been conducting their thesis work at the Cosmic Ray Division of the Yerevan Physics Institute have entered a new milestone in their career preparation.       Hripsime Mkrtchyan and Hasmik Rostomyan successfully finished their Master in Physics courses at the Yerevan State University.  Hripsime’s Master’s theses was titled “The Electrical structure of Thunderclouds and Initiation of the Thunderstorm Ground Enhancements (TGEs)”,  and Hasmik’s was “The Maximal Energy of Solar Acceleretors: Evidence from Space and Earth's Surface Measurements”.  Now they have applied for a job at the Cosmic Ray Division (CRD) of Yerevan Physics Insitute and will prepare for the Thunderstorms and Elementary Particle Acceleration (TEPA 2013)... read more
The Scientific Committee on Solar Terrestrial Physics (SCOSTEP)

   We are pleased to announce that Armenia is now a member of Scientific Committee on Solar Terrestrial Physics (SCOSTEP) and by the decision of Prof. Samvel Harutyunyan, the chair of State science committee, Prof. Ashot Chilingarian, Director of Yerevan physics institute, has been nominated as the Armenia National representative to the SCOSTEP General Council. SCOSTEP, an interdisciplinary body of the International Council for Science (ICSU) is international organization organizing and conducting solar-terrestrial research programs worldwide. The current program is the Climate and Weather of the Sun-Earth System (CAWSES), which is established in 2004. The main functions of CAWSES are coordinating international activities in observations, modeling and applications crucial to achieving a better understanding Earth's space environment and impacts... read more
CRD employee Karen Arakelyan defended the PhD thesis on October , 2012

On 23th  October of  2012  A. Alikhanyan National Labaratory employee  K.Arakelyan in the field of  engineering dissertation defense was held. The theme of the thesis was:  “New electronics for Space Environmental Viewing and Analysis Network (SEVAN) and Aragats Space Environmental  Center (ASEC)”. Arakelyan’s  supervisor was professor Ashot Chilingaryan. The opponents  were  S. Harutunyan and G. Vardanyan from AANL.    The aim of the dissertation  is  the development of  new electronics that provides operability of existing and newly constructed detectors of elementary particles and the formation of additional information obtained with these detectors. The modern electronic system was created for reliable registration of time series of neutral and charged components of cosmic... read more

Физик воссоздал «эхо» Большого взрыва

18:13, 5 апреля 2013 Источник Кадр: YouTube Профессор Университета Вашингтона Джон Крамер воссоздал на основе реликтового микроволнового излучения колебания вещества в ранней Вселенной и превратил их в звуки. Краткое сообщение об этом публикует сайт университета, а сами записи выложены на сайте ученого. В качестве исходных данных Крамер использовал результаты измерения микроволнового излучения, полученные недавно телескопом Планк. Они отражают... read more
Никола Тесла. Секреты продуктивности гения

О Николе Тесла ходит огромное количество легенд. До сих пор неизвестно на 100%, что именно правда, а что — выдумка от одного из самых великих ученых и мистификаторов XIX — XX столетий. Ученые до сих пор спорят между собой. Чего только стоит поиск по запросу «Работы Николы Теслы». Но одно известно точно — Тесла был великим ученым, давно обогнавшим своё время. Его принципы работы завораживают многих. Он мог практически не спать и при этом его продуктивность не падала. Для того... read more
Sources of Cosmic Rays Found? Fermi Telescope Closes In

by Nancy Atkinson on February 15, 2010     The origin of cosmic rays has been a mystery since their discovery nearly a century ago. But new images from the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope may bring astronomers a step closer to understanding the source of the Universe’s most energetic particles. The images show where supernova remnants emit radiation a billion times more energetic than visible light. “Fermi now allows us to compare emission from remnants of different ages and in different environments,” said Stefan Funk, an astrophysicist at the Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology (KIPAC). Cosmic rays are made up of electrons, positrons and atomic nuclei and they constantly bombard the Earth. In their near-speed-of-light journey across the galaxy, the particles are... read more
