Abstract

A scientific session of the Physical Sciences Division of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) took place on October 22, 2008 in the Conference Hall of the P N Lebedev Physical Institute to commemorate the centenary of the birth of the Nobel Prize Laureate in Physics 1958 Academician Il'ya Mikhailovich Frank. Under the guidance of I M Frank from 1957 until 1989, the Laboratory of Neutron Physics at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research achieved outstanding results in the creation and operation of periodic action pulsed reactors utilizing fast neutrons. He supervised a series of experimental studies of reactions involving light nuclei in which neutrons are emitted, the interaction between fast neutrons and the nuclei of tritium, lithium, and uranium, and the process of fusion in the nucleus. A scientific and technological school in pulsed neutron sources was founded under his supervision, gaining recognition from the scientific community.
