Ilya M. Frank (1908-1990), Russian physicist and cowinner of the 1958 Nobel Prize in physics for his interpretation of the Cherenkov effect.
In 1937 Frank and fellow scientist Tamm used a simple mathematical formula to calculate the angle between the gamma ray's travel path and the direction of the particle's wave of emitted energy (the blue light).
Frank expanded his research on Cherenkov radiation by studying how the phenomenon was affected by the optical properties of different media.

In 1928 Igor Tamm spent a few months with Paul Ehrenfest at the University of Leiden.
He was Nobel Laureate in Physics for the year 1958 together with Pavel Alekseyevich Cherenkov and Ilya Mikhailovich Frank for the discovery and the interpretation of the Cherenkov-Vavilov effect.
The western scientists visited the experiment and verified the high temperatures and confinement, sparking a wave of optimism for the prospects of the tokamak as well as construction of new experiments, which is still the dominant magnetic confinement device today.

 Frank Family Crest
The distinguished surname Frank was most likely brought to England in the wake of the Norman Conquest.
Some of the first settlers of this name or some of its variants were: Daniel Frank, who immigrated to Virginia in 1622; as did Cath Frank in 1695; Thomas Frink, who settled in New England in 1699; John Frank, who purchased land in Philadelphia in 1731.
In the Frank coat of arms as in all coat of arms the crest is only one element of the full armorial achievement.

As a result, more and more of our teaching staff and researchers have been able to gain international experience by receiving academic and individual scholarships.
The year 1967 put an end to the former one-sidedness, and the university has since conferred honorary diplomas on several outstanding figures of international science, including Nobel Prize winners Derek Barton, Ilya Mikhailovich Frank and Henry Taube.
On the other hand, many of our most respected professors have been elected honorary doctors of universities abroad.
