Calendar of the International Laboratory

  • 1956 - establishment of the Department of Low Temperatures of the Institute of Physics, PAS, headed by
    prof. Stanislaw Roman Ingarden;

  • 1961 - construction and activation of the first in Poland Bitter magnet generated magnetic fields up to 4T;

  • 1964 - meeting of the CMEA scientific experts in Minsk; formulation of the idea of creating in Wroclaw an international research center dealing with the properties of matter in strong magnetic fields and low temperatures;

  • 1965 - meeting of the experts in Dresden: prof. Wlodzimierz Trzebiatowski on behalf of the Polish Academy of Sciences presents the concept of the creation of the International Laboratory;

  • 1968 - signing an agreement between the Polish, Bulgarian, GDR and USSR Academies of Sciences to establish the International Laboratory of High Magnetic Fields and Low Temperatures in Wroclaw.
    Appointment of Prof. W. Trzebiatowski as the Director of the Laboratory and Prof. Nikolai E. Alekseevskii as the President of the Scientific Council;

  • 1968 - transfer to work in the IL of the scientific and technical staff by the Institute of Low Temperature and Structure Research PAS;
