Development of the neutrino irradiation detection techniques for basic research and practical applications

It is a wide field of activities directed to searching tasks of neutrino physics, such as search for neutrino-nucleus coherent scattering processes, search for neutrino magnetic moment and others. Possible practical application is the development of the neutrino method for the nuclear power plants remote control. Historically, this direction had started in the Kurchatov Institute yet in 1980-th. Currently we develop the detectors for the nuclear power plants remote monitoring, particularly for the non-proliferation and prevention of the unauthorized power plants operating regimes.
