The L.V. Kirensky Institute of Physics celebrates the 65th anniversary of its foundation

12 October 2021 г.

12 октября  Институт физики имени Леонида Васильевича Киренского празднует 65-летие со дня основания
The uniqueness of the Institute of Physics established in Krasnoyarsk is due to the fact that it was created owing to the labor and talent of a person who managed to break the prevailing stereotypes and the conservative system "from below". The creation of scientific institutions on the periphery is successful only when there are scientists captivating others by their personal example. Leonid Vasilyevich Kirensky was precisely that kind of man.

Over the past years of work at the Institute, several authoritative scientific schools have been created, which not only continue the work of L.V. Kirensky, but also conduct advanced research. In several areas of physics, the Institute is one of the best academic organizations in Russia. From the very beginning of its history to the present day, the Institute of Physics brings together scientists known both in Russia and abroad. It successfully poses and solves current scientific problems. Tthe researchers of the Institute actively participate in Russian and international collaborations and create applied developments and theoretical materials known at the world level.

On the occasion of the sixty-five-year anniversary, a solemn meeting was held at the Institute of Physics, where the director of the L.V. Kirensky Institute of Physics, Dmitry Balaev, along with colleagues from the Siberian Branch of SB RAS congratulated the staff with the event. Nikita Boev told about the research and latest achievements of the laboratory of scientific instrumentation in his report "From theory to practice - research and development at the Kirensky Institute of Physics" and Maksim Korshunov reported on the advanced research performed at the Institute in his presentation "Multiband superconductors and their unusual properties".

Director of the Federal Research Center "Krasnoyarsk Science Center", Doctor of Agricultural Sciences Alexander Shpedt congratulated the L.V. Kirensky Institute of Physics:

“The Institute of Physics, the embodiment of the dream of the outstanding scientist and outstanding organizer Leonid Vasilyevich Kirensky, was in 1956 the pioneer of academic science on the banks of the Yenisei, the founder of other remarkable institutes – those of biophysics, chemistry and chemical technology, and computational modeling - in Akademgorodok in Krasnoyarsk. Owing to Leonid Vasilievich, the institute quickly turned into an interdisciplinary one and performed a wide range of ongoing research. The brilliant works coming out of the institute have always been of the highest scientific level. Numerous discoveries made within the walls of the Institute of Physics enriched our knowledge and became the property of world civilization. The revolutionary transformations which have taken place in recent decades in the physics of magnetism, nonlinear and coherent optics, photonic crystals, physical and quantum electronics are closely related to the activities of the Institute of Physics SB RAS. A unique community of hundreds of specialists successfully solves the most difficult problems in various fields of physical science and science-intensive technologies. For sixty-five years, the Institute of Physics has carefully maintained the atmosphere of respect for science, professionalism, and continuity of the best, as laid down by the generation of its founders. All these years the Institute of Physics has been working as a single team. Within the institute, hundreds of candidates and doctors of physical and mathematical sciences have been trained. Scientific youth is constantly growing up, preserving and increasing the glorious traditions of a wonderful team of scientists.

Modern physics is able to study the properties of objects and phenomena that are far beyond the human imagination,” wrote Lev Landau. Dear Krasnoyarsk physicists! You have always been able to stay ahead of your time. Let new scientific horizons open up for you; let there be new insights, new success, projects, and recognition. I wish you good health and constant forward movement along the thorny, but exciting and noble path of serving science! "

At the end of the solemn meeting, the participants put flowers at the monument to Leonid Vasilyevich Kirensky.
