Lev Landau, Soviet physicist

Lev Davidovich Landau (1908-1968), Soviet physicist. Landau was a theoretician who made important contributions to quantum mechanics, diamagnetism, superfluidity, superconductivity and plasma physics. In 1962 he received the Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on superfluidity and the properties of liquid helium. Landau was born in Azerbaijan, studied in Leningrad (now St Petersburg), and worked abroad before returning to the USSR to work near Moscow. From 1937 to 1962 he led a theoretical research institute that is now called the Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics in his honour. He was severely injured in a car crash in 1962, and never fully recovered, dying six years later. Photographed in June 1965

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the essence of Lev Landau, a prominent Soviet physicist who left an indelible mark on the world of science. Born in Azerbaijan in 1908, Landau's brilliance led him to study in Leningrad and eventually work abroad before returning to his homeland. In 1962, he was awarded the prestigious Nobel Prize in Physics for his groundbreaking research on superfluidity and the properties of liquid helium. The image, taken in June 1965, portrays Landau as a distinguished gentleman with wisdom etched into every line on his face. His piercing gaze reflects a mind constantly exploring the depths of quantum mechanics, diamagnetism, superconductivity, and plasma physics. As one of the leading theoretical physicists of his time, Landau played a pivotal role in advancing our understanding of these complex phenomena. However, tragedy struck when he suffered severe injuries from a car accident that year. Although he never fully recovered from this incident, it did not dampen his spirit or hinder his contributions to science until his untimely death six years later. Today we remember Lev Davidovich Landau as an extraordinary individual whose legacy lives on through the theoretical research institute named after him near Moscow - The Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics. This remarkable photograph serves as a poignant reminder of his immense intellect and enduring impact on the scientific community during the mid-20th century.
