Lev P Gor'kov Lev P Gor'kov

Lev Petrovich Gor'kov, professor of physics and leading theorist at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, died on December 28, 2016.

Gor'kov was internationally known for his pioneering work in the field of superconductivity and had been the recipient of many prestigious awards throughout his illustrious career including the Lenin Prize, Russia's highest award for scientific achievement in 1966, the Landau Award in 1988, and the Bardeen Award in 1991.

Born in Russia in 1929, Gor'kov left Moscow for the United States in 1992 and was a founding member of the National MagLab.

"Lev was a man whose scientific accomplishments are known and admired by the physics community and whose gentle personality and keen sense of humor are equally appreciated by those fortunate enough to have known him personally," said MagLab Director Greg Boebinger.

Gor'kov was a member of the National Academy of Sciences and fellow of the American Physical Society. He received the Humboldt Research Award in 1999 and was given the Eugene Feenberg Medal in 2004 for advancing the field of many-body physics. Just last year, Gor'kov was presented the Ugo Fano Prize by the Rome International Center for Materials Science.

Gor'kov was 87 years old.

Remembrances

"I am very sad to hear this news. Lev was a giant in his field, and a true gentleman scientist. He was always kind to me, even when it was clear that his understanding of highly correlated electrons systems was much greater than my own!"
