August 8th, 2009 is the ninetieth birthday of

Boris Ieremievich  Verkin

an outstanding scientist, inspirer and organizer of science, the founder of the Institute of Low Temperature Physics and Engineering of NAS of Ukraine and the director for 28 years running (1960-1988).Boris Ieremievich  Verkin was known as a prominent physicist-experimentalist, an excellent pedagogue of high educational and enlightening standards, but most of all, as an outstanding organizer of science. This precious B.I. Verkins gift combining deep understanding of physics, intuition, prevision and purposefulness was fully devoted to creation of a unique scientific center known at present as the Institute of Low Temperature Physics and Engineering. At that time there was hardly a person who could conceive to full extent what new quantum phenomena and engineering potentialities were kept concealed in the region of low and superlow temperatures. The Institute was built to explore this region. But the Institute does not mean only a building. First of all, there were people and their activities that formed the Institute. B.I. Verkin possessed the highest intellectual faculty of finding and attracting people. His personal charm, enthusiastic ideas and wisely formulated scientific goals were really catching. He formed a team of talented adherents and supporters who he could rely on in pursuing scientific objects. B.I. Verkin developed a creative and friendly concord and collaboration of physicists, mathematicians and designers who together carried out research and put scientific results into practice.

B.I. Verkin has contributed significantly and amply to development of the basic fields of low temperature physics of condensed matter, such as electronic properties of normal metals, superconductivity, magnetism, properties of cryocrystals,  quantum crystals and quantum liquids, structure and mechanical  properties of materials, molecular biophysics, physics and engineering at superlow temperatures. He initiated and developed wide-range low temperature applications in instrument making industries. The scientific trends chosen by B.I. Verkin have been progressing successfully till now.
