About the Museum
The Memorial Laboratory of Ye.K.Zavoisky was opened in September 1997. It was there, in Room 253 of the Main Building of Kazan State University, where in 1944 Yevgeny K. Zavoisky observed signals of magnet spin resonance for the first time. The idea of restoration of the scientist's apparatus for observing the effect of absorption of the radio frequencies field in a substance (when radio frequency field is perpendicular to a magnet field) was completely approved by S.A.Altshuler, corresponding member of the USSR Academy of Sciences, the Head of Magnet Radiospectroscopy Department. Later on the idea resulted in the establishment of the Memorial Laboratory.
A lot of arrangements were made before the laboratory was opened: for 15 years the enthusiasts had been working in the libraries and archives, museums and research institutes, universities of Kazan and Moscow, in particular, the stores of KSU, Kazan Branch of the Academy of Sciences, the Institute for Physical Problems named after P.L.Kapitsa, the USSR Academy of Sciences, Moscow State University, in Zavoiskys' family archive and the National Archive of Tatarstan.
The collected materials include memories of Ye.K.Zavoisky's colleagues and contemporaries, professors of the Kazan State University, among them there were S.A.Altshuler and B.M.Kozyrev. The stories told by Zavoisky's relatives, his daughter Natalya and brother Vyacheslav, are especially important.
The equipment, used by Yevgeny Konstantinovich, was looked for at Kazan University, Aircraft and Veterinary Institutes, Medical, Teachers' Training and Agricultural Institutes, School No 131 and Plant No 16 of Kazan City, and in private family archives. The results of the search and investigation were published and presented at exhibitions, including numerous reports made at the conferences, in particularly, at "Zavoiskiye Chteniya".
