European collaborative research projects

The MBN Research Center and members of its team actively participate in the European collaborative research projects, often playing the leading and coordinating roles. Below, the running and completed European projects of the MBN Research Center are presented.

  • H2020 RISE-RADON Project "Irradiation driven nanofabrication: computational modelling versus experiment"
    RADON delivers a state of the art programme which addresses the needs of both research and industry communities working on the advancement of the methods for controlling irradiation-driven nanofabrication, whilst simultaneously training research and innovation staff capable of exploiting modern computational and experimental tools in this area of research and technology. Exposure of a system to radiation results in changes in the system's morphology, electronic, mechanical and catalytic properties. Irradiation of nanosystems especially during their growing or fabrication phase and con-trolling them with the nanoscale resolution is a considerable challenge but if achieved opens enormous op-portunities and will lead to creation of novel and efficient technologies. Currently such technologies provide controlled fabrication of nanostructures with nanometer resolution, although the control of various proper-ties of such structures remains rudimentary. RADON aims at deeper understanding of the underlying molec-ular interactions and the key dynamical phenomena in irradiated nanosystems that will help to improve these nanofabrication technologies.

  • H2020 RISE-N-LIGHT Project "Novel Light Sources: Theory and Experiment"
    The N-Light project suggests an interdisciplinary research programme that will provide the breakthrough needed in theory and experiment to design and deliver the practical realisation of novel gamma-ray Light Sources (LS) operating at photon energies from ~100 keV up to GeV range that can be constructed through exposure of oriented crystals (line-ar, bent and periodically bent) to the beams of ultrarelativistic charged particles. The N-Light research and technologi-cal programme will address the physics of the processes accompanying the oriented crystal exposure to irradiation by the beams at the atomistic level of detail needed for the realisation of the N-light goals.

  • Periodically Bent Crystals for Crystalline Undulators (H2020 RISE-PEARL), 2016-2019
    This collaborative project is supported by the European Commission in the frame of the Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) funding scheme in the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions under Horizon 2020. The PEARL project aims at advancing the technologies for manufacturing of high quality periodically bent crystals. Such crystals developed in the course of this project will be utilised for the construction of novel light sources of high-energy (from 100 keV up to GeV range) monochromatic electromagnetic radiation by means of a crystalline undulator.
