World famous Russian physicist theorist and experimenter, who made an essential contribution into the discovery of gravitational


Vladimir Braginsky was a world famous Russian physicist theorist and experimenter, who made an essential contribution into the discovery of gravitational waves. He was an expert in the field of precision and quantum measurements, detection of gravitational waves, low dissipation systems, and fundamental thermodynamic fluctuations. Prof. Vladimir Braginsky was the chief researcher of the Physics of Vibrations and Waves Department at the Physics Faculty of the Moscow State University,  and a visiting professor of California Technology Institute, the USA.
A corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, a member of Academia Europaea, London, an honorary foreign member of the American Arts and Sciences Academy, and a foreign member of the US National Academy of Sciences.
Vladimir Braginsky was born on August 3 in 1931. From 1955 he went in for experimental physics at the physics faculty of the Moscow State University. He predicted the existence of Standard Quantum Limits.
The researcher devoted several decades of his life to the search of gravitational waves: in the 1960s he organized a group of scientists on the basis of the physics faculty of the MSU and headed it for many years. Jointly with his colleagues from the Applied Physics Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences he worked in  LIGO (the Laser Interferometric Gravitational Observatory), which made the break-through discovery of gravitational waves announced on February 11, 2016.
Vladimir Braginsky is one of the most cited Russian scientists.
