from where he published over hundred
works in his field.
Mainly, he studied radio physics (wave propagation),
statistical acoustics, the neutron, cosmic rays and particle physics.
In his early years, he studied the Beta-decay of ionized atoms (1939),
inelastic coherent processes (1941) and inelastic diffraction
He headed the high-energy particle interaction research groups 1952-78.
