BEIJING, December 21. /TASS/. A Russian-Chinese center for the research of superconducting protons has been set up in the Chinese city of Hefei with the participation of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (headquartered in Dubna, outside Moscow), the Xinhua news agency reported on Monday.
"China and Russia have been cooperating on nuclear fusion research for more than 30 years, and partnership between the two countries in this sphere has been constantly growing," the news agency quoted the director of the Institute of Plasma Physics at the Chinese Academy of Sciences quoted its director, Kuang Guangli, as saying.
It said that within the next three years, center’s engineers plan to develop the first in China medical device for treating cancer and other grave diseases. In line with the signed agreements, in 2017 China will develop the main systems and parts for the new medical device, and in 2018 specialists from the two countries will make the first tests.
