Basov Readings

A solemn meeting (scientific session) of the Physical Sciences Division (PSD) and the Nanotechnology Division of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), as well as the Scientific Councils of the P N Lebedev Physical Institute (LPI) RAS and the A M Prokhorov General Physics Institute (GPI) RAS, On the 100th Anniversary of the Birth of N G Basov: the 'BASOV READINGS,' was held in the Assembly Hall of the PNLebedev Physical Institute on November 28, 2022.
Opening remarks were made by:
Kolachevsky N N (LPI), Kveder V V (PSD RAS), Garnov S V (GPI RAS)

  10. Zvorykin V D (LPI, Moscow). N G Basov's role in work on excimer laser research: a half-century history from the launch of the first Xe2 laser at the LPI to modern laser systems.
For the 100th anniversary of N G Basov's birth, scientific and biographical materials were published in the journal Uspekhi Fizicheskikh Nauk (UFN) (see Refs [1-3]), as was a special issue of the journal Quantum Electronics (QE) [4]. Papers written on the basis of reports 1, 3, and 5 were published in QE (see [5-7]), and those written on the basis of reports 2 and 10 were published in UFN (see [8, 9]). A review written on the basis of the report 7 is published below in this issue of UFN (see [10]).
