Contribution of Ukrainian Scientists to the Development of Electrodynamics
Keywords:Ukrainian scientists, electrodynamics, laws of electric current, magnetism, electrical engineering, radio engineering
The aim of the paper is to prove the importance of the works performed by Ukrainian scientists for the development of electrodynamics. Some examples of achievements made by Ukrainian scientists in this scientific area include physical theories in such directions as the electrical conductivity, domain structure of ferromagnets, photoelectromotive force in semiconductors, microscopic theory of superconductivity, Shubnikov–de Haas effect, magneto-acoustic resonance, invention of an electric tram, live broadcast of the moving-image signal, distant control of objects by means of radio signals, and arc welding of metals. Most Ukrainian scientists have founded their own scientific schools, which works are recognized throughout the world. They were not only engaged in the scientific and lecturing activities, but also in the popularization of science, reformation of the education system, and social activity.
