I.Vekua Sukhumi Institute of Physicss

General Information

Ilia Vekua Sukhumi Institute of Physics and Technology (SIPT) was founded in 1945. Since then the Institute has solved the most actual tasks of modern atomic and nuclear physics, moreover has participated in developing major issues of military industrial complex of the USSR.

At the early stage the Institute was developing by the participation of world wide known German scientists. In essence, SIPT was set up with the aim to solve the most drastic problem of the time to develop the technology to receive dividing material for creating nuclear weapon. In USSR, SIPT was pioneer to develop methods of receiving high-purity silicium (1955) and high frequency germanium monocrystal (1957). Started from 60s of the previous century, the Institute has successfully been working on problem of nontraditional energy, i.e. creating converters of heat energy into electric energy by thermal electric and thermal emission methods. The first thermal electric generator (TEG) “Romashka” was made in SIPT followed by whole series of TEGs for nuclear energy devices of cosmic, terrestrial, underwater and other applications. At preset, SIPT has staff of 89 employees, 51 of them are scientists.

Institute’s Focus

Current and prior trends of the Institute are the following:

  • Development of high-efficiency thermal electric materials and thermal electric generators;
  • Development of high-tech equipment for production of basalt materials;
  • Development of perspective cryotechnologic materials and constructions;
  • Development of ion-implanted materials with control structure and properties;
  • Development and creation of hard and elastic radiation resistant materials to treat radioactive substances and waste;
  • Investigation and monitoring of Georgian territory contaminated by long lived radionuclides;
  • Study of solar-terrestrial interactions coherent geomagnetic processes applying new theoretic works.

Valuable Technology Offerings

As a result of applied research, a number of new materials and technologies have been developed and are offered by the Institute to external users, for example:

  • Highefficiency multicimponent Si-Ge alloys and thermal batteries based on them;
  • Hightemperature heliothermal generators (HTEG);
  • Two-stage high-efficiency heliothermal generators;
  • Bulk monocrystalline Si-Ge alloys and epitaxial structures based on them;
  • Development and manufacture of high-efficiency technology equipment to produce continuous basaltfibers, strips, powders and construction items (high-tensile and flexible transportation tanks, corrosion resistant, water proof colours);
  • Development and manufacture of cryo-sorption pumps on liquid and hard nitrogen, cryo-condenser pump on liquid helium;
  • Container for transportation and maintenance of radiation resistant materials and waste;
  • State-of-the-art nanostructure thermoelectric materials obtained via explosive compaction;
  • Ion implanted refractory transient metals (W, Mo, Cr, Ti) with drastically improved (radiation-modified, tribologic, friction, etc);
  • Semi conducting heat neutrons ion-implanted detector.

Even tɦat sҺouldn't be much of a problem, since irrіgation needs will be lower then due tо cooler temperatures and
the beginning of the fall and winter rains (which will help leach any excess salt out of the ցardens).
Then be sure to contact tҺe plumƅing profеssionals аt Mr.
There have been studies, however, that shоw
that it is not safe for prеǥnant women or women trying to concеive to ingest neem oil.
