The Rostec United Engine Corporation will anneal 2.1 thousand permalloy screens for the neutrino telescope on Lake Baikal in 2022-2023. This is stated in the message of Rostec.

The neutrino telescope sensors installed in the waters of Lake Baikal capture high-energy particles and determine their source. This allows scientists to study events in deep space.

The neutrino telescope is a network of several thousand optical recorders that dive into Lake Baikal to a depth of about 1 km, where high-energy neutrinos are recorded.

A unique feature of these particles is the ability to travel astronomical distances without changing the direction of movement and thereby convey information from the most remote corners of the universe. The purity of the Baikal water makes it possible not only to capture neutrinos, but also to determine the source of their occurrence with great accuracy, the message emphasizes.

The neutrino Observatory is operated by the Baikal international collaboration, which includes: the Institute for Nuclear Research of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, Irkutsk and Moscow State Universities, the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences, the University of Bratislava, as well as a number of other domestic and foreign scientific organizations.
