THE INSTITUTE OF APPLIED PHYSICS AS THE CENTER FOR THE CONSOLIDATION OF THE COMMUNITY OF SIBERIA-BASED PHYSICISTS

  • Sorokin, A.
Abstract:
With the establishment of Soviet power, there have been changes not only in socio-economic development, but also in the scientific and educational complex of Siberia. In the first half of the 1920s, the academic community of physicists was able to partially realize their ideas about the establishment of a research institute that would unite the efforts of physicists in the region. The article focuses on the study of the specificities of the structure, financial position, main directions and key results of the Institute of Applied Physics (IPF) at Tomsk technological institute. With very modest financial support and lack of help on the part of the local authorities, the physicists of the IPF managed to carry out research on actual fundamental and practical questions of physics. In particular, the researchers of the IPF managed to conduct a comprehensive study of the problems of metallography, metallurgy, resistance of materials and physical phenomena. At the same time, shortcomings and problem areas in the activity of the IPF can be traced: lack of coordination and weak level of interaction between scientists, low level of interaction with enterprises and authorities. At the same time, the scientific potential accumulated by the IPF allowed the Siberian Physical Technical Institute to be created on its basis later on. The article is intended for all those interested in the history of science and technology, the history of Siberia and Russia.
