  • Faculty of Physics and Engineering Staff to Republish Legendary Soviet Physicist’s Works

    ‘The Unusual Laws of Refraction and Reflection’ is a science-pop book by Soviet physics luminary Robert Silin. In this oeuvre that used to be well-known to every Russian physics buff, Prof. Silin describes the laws that, despite only being discovered at the turn of the last century, have already entered the scientific day-to-day. The book was first sent to press more than 20 years ago in 1999 and is now being republished in a new-and-improved edition with updated terminology and expanded contents. ITMO University’s Faculty of Physics and Engineering staff were instrumental in bringing the book to the 21th century audience. They let ITMO.NEWS in on how the ‘renovation’ project took place and explained the importance of reminding the international scientific community about Russian physicists.
