P.L. Kapitza Institute for Physical Problems
of 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.
