Professor Boris NEGANOV passed away on 19 August 2012.
Education: Leningrad State University. From 1951 – Dubna – Doctor of Science. In 1962 a new proposal for continuous Refrigeration with ….. Method of getting Low Temperaturies by Dilution of 3He in 4He proposed by H.London et al. Phys.Rev. 128 (1962) 1992 !!! T.O.Niinicoski, CERN – EP/83-127, September, 1983 : “ ……The first continuously operating Dilution Refrigerators were reported by H.E.Hall, P.J.Ford and K.Thomson, Cryogenic 6 (1966) 80 = app. 0.2 K and INDEPENDENTLY by B.S.Neganov, N.S.Borisov and M.Yu.Liburg = 0.05K !!! Zh.Exp. Teor. Fiz. 50 (1966) You can see here ….some historic fotos …..!!!
Since 1993 Neganov went away from FPT’s to physical problems connected with general relativity and quantum electrodynamics. Nevertheless, the team, which was organized by him, has continued the work. Some results up to present time are illustrated by the following slides.
