Lebedev Physical Institute, specializing in quantum electrodynamics, lasers, and masers. He won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1964 with Aleksandr M. Prokhorov and Charles N. Townes: "for fundamental work in the field of quantum electronics, which has led to the construction of oscillators and amplifiers based on the maser-laser principle."
