P.L. Kapitza Institute for Physical Problems
Russian Academy of Sciences

The Institute of Physical Problems was founded by a Government decree dated December 23th, 1934. Its rather unusual name was chosen to signify that it would not necessarily be concerned with any particular branch of science, but that it would be a relatively small institute studying certain problems whose exact nature and scope would depend on the particular scientists working here.
