A Nobel laureate supports an IKBFU research project

A project of researchers from the IKBFU's Faculty of Physics and Technology was supported by one of the world's leading specialist, a 2008 Nobel laureate in physics, Toshihide Maskawa. In his letter addressed to the Minister of science and education of the Russian Federation, A. Fursenko, Prof. Toshihide Maskawa emphasised the need to support the project of IKBFU's researchers and expressed his readiness to take part in the project and even deliver guest lectures to Kaliningrad students.

IKBFU boasts a relativistic cosmology group started and headed by Prof. Artyom V. Yurov, the head of the Department of Theoretical Physics. The research on the dark energy phenomenon carried out in Kaliningrad aroused great interest among international colleagues, which resulted in the foundation of a Russian-Spanish group of cosmologists and specialists in high-energy physics, which brings together Kaliningrad, Madrid, and Barcelona. Recently, the group received strong support from the University of Kyoto (Japan), namely, the legendary Nobel Prize winner.

Toshihide Maskawa is a professor at the University of Kyoto and private Kyoto Sangyo University. He co-authored, with Makoto Kobayashi, the famous article "CP Violation in the Renormalizable Theory of Weak Interaction" (1973) – the third most cited article on high-energy physics in 1997. The hypothesis put forward in the article predicted the existence of at least three families of quarks in nature, which was confirmed for years later by the discovery of the b-quark.
