16th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON CONDENSED
MATTER NUCLEAR SCIENCE
CHENNAI, INDIA.
FEBRUARY 6 -11, 2011



 

 

 

A one day Workshop on the

“Biological Nuclear Transmutations : Historical Perspective and Applications”

is to be held on Tuesday 15th February 2011 at the SRM University (SRMU), Kattankulathur campus about 40 Km from Chennai. The main lectures will be conducted by Prof. Vladimir Vysotskii of the Kiev National Shevchenko University, Ukraine.
The workshop is being jointly organized by the Kalpakkam Chapter of the Indian Institute of Metals and the Biotechnology Department of SRMU. The Microbial Corrosion group of the Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research and the Biotechnology Dept of SRMU already have a collaborative Research program on the application of biotechnology for various metallurgical and corrosion related applications.

Prof. Vysotskii has carried out pioneering research over the past decade on the Transmutation of Stable and Radioactive Isotopes in Biological Systems. A brief Biodata of Prof. Vysotskii is appended below.

Since Prof. Vysotskii had indicated that he will be coming to Chennai to attend ICCF 16 and present papers on his latest studies in the field, it was decided to invite him to conduct such a course for the benefit of the Indian nuclear community in view of its potential importance to the management of nuclear waste generated by Nuclear power plants. Although the science behind the phenomenon of Biological Transmutations it is not yet fully understood and it is by no means still clear whether such techniques can be applied on an industrial scale, it was yet felt that it would be a great opportunity to organize such a meeting by getting together experts with various backgrounds related to the topic for an indepth discussion. We are grateful to Prof.Vysotskii for having accepted our invitation to conduct such a course.

There is no Registration fee for ths course. Interested participants may contact either of the course Coordinators for registration. Accommodation will be arranged either at the SRMU guest house for the nights of 14th and 15th February, of course at a nominal charge!

Dr. Richard Thilagaraj of SRMU (Richard.thilagaraj@gmail.com) will be the Course coordinator and Dr. Rani George of IGCAR (rani@igcar.gov.in) the Joint Course coordinator. Dr. M.Srinivasan, Chairman, Organizing Committee for ICCF 16 (chino37@gmail.com) will serve as Advisor for this course.

Further details are being worked out and will be uploaded on the ICCF 16 website.

Brief Biodata of Prof. Vysotskii :

Dr. Vladimir I. Vysotskii is Professor of Radiophysical Faculty and Head of Theoretical Radiophysics Department at Kiev National Shevchenko University, Ukraine. He received his Master degree in Quantum Radiophysics from the same University in 1969 and Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from Kiev Institute of Theoretical physics of the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences in 1975.

Since 1976 Dr. Vysotskii has been working in the Radiophysical Faculty of Kiev National Shevchenko University. Currently he is Professor and Head of Theoretical Radiophysics Department of this University where he conducts courses on quantum mechanics, nuclear physics, modern laser physics, molecular biology and radiobiology.

Prof.Vysotskii’s research interests include

* X-ray lasers and gamma-ray lasers, sources of short-wave radiation of fast electrons and positrons in crystals, the methods of creation, forming and controlling of directed flow of neutrons, X-rays and gamma-quanta for the aims of coherent atomic and nuclear physics,
* New methods of coherent physics, nuclear physics and nuclear optics of condensed matter, X-ray and gamma-ray optics, channeling of atoms, neutrons, X-rays and gamma-quanta in (or near) perfect crystals;
* Nuclear physics at extreme conditions (self-controlled collapse of electron-nuclear plasma in both a laboratory and in the universe)
* Modern problems of radiobiology:

In the area of applied biology he has conducted research on radiation and molecular biophysics and environmental problems such as :

* Investigation and modelling of nonlinear phenomena in DNA (depolymerization, degradation, repairing) at combined action of hard and soft radiation and action of free radicals in real intermolecular and intercellular mediums.
* The problems of hormesis, radiation synergism and antagonism at combined irradiation of living systems and the problem of low dose.
* Investigation of physical properties, memory phenomena and biological effects of regular and activated water.
* Investigation of biophysical properties and both biological and medical application of activated water.
* Investigation of isotopes anomalies in living systems and study of possible nuclear reactions in biological and microbiological systems.
* Radiation ecology and the problem of utilization (deactivation) of radioactive waste.

Prof. Vysotskii is the first author of the following six books:

• Vysotskii V.I., Kuzmin R.N. Gamma-lasers, Moscow, Moscow State Univ Publishing House, 1989
• Vysotskii V.I.,Kornilova A.A. Nuclear Fusion and transmutation of isotopes in biological systems, Moscow, MIR Publishing House, 2003
• Vysotskii V.I., Smirnov I.V., Kornilova A.A.Introduction to the Biophysics of Activated Water, Universal Publishiers, Roca Raton, Florida, USA, 2005
• Vysotskii V.I. Quantum Mechanics and its Application in Applied Physics, 2009, Handbook, Kiev.
• Vysotskii V.I., Kornilova A.A. Nuclear transmutation of stable and radioactive isotopes in biological systems, Pentagon Press, India, 2009.
• Vysotskii V.I., Kornilova A.A., Smirnov I.V. Applied biophysics of activated water (the physical properties, biological effects and medical applications of MRET activated water), World Scientific Publishing, Singapore, 2009.

Prof. V.I.Vysotskii was awarded the US Air Force Window for Science and has been recipient of various research grants from INTAS, CRDF, IAEA and other agencies.
 

The main topics of his investigation in "biology" area are:

Investigation and modelling of nonlinear phenomena in DNA; problems of hormesis, radiation synergism and antagonism at combined irradiation of living systems and the problem of low dose; investigation of physical properties, memory phenomena and biological effects of regular and activated water; investigation of isotopes anomalies in living systems and study of possible nuclear reactions in biological and microbiological systems; radiation ecology and the problem of utilization (deactivation) of radioactive waste.
