  It currently gathers three directions of experimental apparature development for HEP experiments

We focus on development and testing of detector components and characterization of material properties with the special aim at combined scintilator and silicon photomultipliers (SiPM) technology. We have a leading role in the design and construction of FSD (Forward spectator detector) for the CBM experiment at GSI laboratory as well as in the development of luminosity measurements and electron-tagging instrumentation for the ePIC project of the Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL).

We also developed and maintain Forward Diffractive Detector (FDD) in the ALICE detector at CERN laboratory. It is one of the three subsystems of Fast Interaction Trigger (FIT). The FDD detector consists of two stations made of two layers of plastic scintillators, divided into four quadrants. Each quadrant has two wavelengths shifting (WLS) bars connected to individual photomultipliers (PMTs) via a bundle of clear optical fibres. FDD allows to efficiently tag diffractive and ultraperipheral hadron collision events.
