The development of physics of magnetic phenomena on the Far East

In Vladivostok in 1956, the Far Eastern State University (FESU) was once again restored, which had a physics and mathematics faculty. The physical department was represented by only two departments: theoretical physics and general physics. It was at this time at the Department of Theoretical Physics, which was headed by prof. Alexey Danilovich Ershov, and a young, beautiful, big clever and surprisingly tactful Valentina Vladislavovna Veter appeared. She had just successfully completed graduate school with L. V. Kirensky and voluntarily went to the Far East.

At that time, at FENU, physical research was almost at the zero level. VV Wind, with enviable energy, managed to rally around herself a young, initiative team, from which, at the opening of the postgraduate course in the physics of magnetic phenomena, an efficient talented postgraduate team was formed. Such scientists as L. A. Chebotkevich (professor), D. E. Linkova (associate professor) emerged from this first wave; S. B. Lebedinskaya (associate professor), L. A. Yudina (professor), L. G. Kashina (associate professor).



The second wave of young scientists includes Yu. D. Vorobyova (professor), G. P. Timakova (associate professor), G. F. Ivanov (associate professor). Among them are not only scientists, but also major organizers of science in the Far East: the director of the FENU Information Center, Professor B. N. Grudin; Head of the Department of Scientific Research at Far Eastern National University, Professor V.S. Plotnikov and others.


Thanks to the caring patronage of L. V. Kirensky, already in the early 1970s. Far Eastern physicists knew all the Russian leading schools of magnetologists. V.V. Veter participated in conferences in constant accompaniment of five or six young scientists. In 1972, at the initiative of V.V. Veter, it was possible to open the Department of Solid State Physics at the Department of Physics at the Physics Department. Academician G.V. Kurdyumov, who addressed a letter to the Minister of Education of the USSR, corresponding member of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR V.P. Elyutin, helped the discovery of the department.

In the early 1970s the Department of FTT at Far Eastern State University started cooperation with the Department of Scientific Research Automation at FESU (later the Department of Physical Foundations of Information Media Technology, FOTIS), which since 1982 was headed by Professor V. V. Yudin.

In 1985 our laboratory of film technologies was created. The head of the laboratory was Yuri Dmitrievich Vorobyev, and the permanent supervisor - Chebotkevich Lyudmila Alekseevna.


As a result, by the end of the 1990s, the following structure of the Faculty of Physics and Technology was formed:

  • Department of Physical Principles of Information Environment Technology (supervisor: VV Yudin)

  • Department of Physics and Materials Technology for semiconductor microelectronics (jointly with IAPU, Far East Branch, Russian Academy of Sciences, head VG Lifshits)

  • Laboratory of Physics of Semiconductors and Dielectrics (supervised by Z. Z. Ditin)

  • Laboratory of Film Technologies (scientific advisor: L.A. Chebotkevich, Head of Lab. Yu.D. Vorobev)


In 1997, the Institute of Physics and Information Technology (IFIT) of the Far Eastern State University was established at FENU.

The close cooperation of the departments and laboratories of the Far Eastern State University with the Institute of Informatics and Pedagogical Studies of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences gave rise to the third wave of young scientists. Their work relates to research on fractal physics and applied synergetics, the theory and simulation of quasicrystals, the study of synergistic processes during thermoradiation effects on amorphous films, metallic glasses, spinning tapes. A large amount of work is devoted to the problems of obtaining and studying magnetic nanostructures “semiconductor — metal”, “metal — metal”; the study of the relationship between the composition, structure, dimension of objects, magnetic and magnetotransport properties.


At present, work in the field of physics of magnetic materials is concentrated mainly in the laboratory of thin-film technologies of FEFU.


Since 2005, Ognev Alexey Vyacheslavovich and Samardak Alexander Sergeevich have been actively involved in the development of the laboratory. In 2006 - 2008, within the framework of the National Project “Education”, FENU conducted a complete modernization of the equipment of the laboratory of film technologies, which made it possible to reach a qualitatively new, international level of scientific research. As a consequence, the modernization and expansion of the material and technical base of the laboratory was carried out through grants from the Federal Program of Federal Program, the Russian Foundation for Basic Research, the Russian Science Foundation, the Scientific and Technical Institute, and the FEFU development program.



Under the guidance of L.A. Chebotkevich brought up the fourth wave of young scientists who continue to develop the physics of magnetic phenomena in the Far East at the present time.

Since the beginning of the 80s, talented scientist and attentive teacher Victor G. Lifshits, who heads the laboratory of controlled growth of microstructures at the Institute of Automation and Control Processes (IACP), has created the department of physics and technology of materials of semiconductor microelectronics (FTMPM) at the Faculty of Physics and Technology at FENU. V.G. For 20 years, Lifshits headed the department and for seven years he was the dean of the physics and technology department of the Far Eastern State University, in 2003 he was recognized the best dean of the Far Eastern State University.
