Boris Shklovskii

Boris Ionowitsch Shklovskii (born 1944) is a theoretical physicist, at the William I Fine Theoretical Physics Institute, University of Minnesota, specializing in condensed matter. Shklovskii earned his A.B. degree in Physics, in 1966 and a Ph.D. in condensed matter theory, in 1968 from Leningrad University.[1]

Shklovskii is known for the Efros–Shklovskii variable-range hopping conductivity, a model for the temperature dependence of the hopping conductivity in the variable-range hopping regime.[2]

Honors and awards

Shklovskii was awarded the Landau Prize of Academy of Sciences of USSR in 1986, the A.S. Fine Chair in Theoretical Physics in 1990,[1][3] and was elected a fellow of the American Physical Society in 1994.[4]

In 2018, he received the 2019 Oliver E. Buckley Condensed Matter Physics Prize for "pioneering research in the physics of disordered materials and hopping conductivity" together with Alexei L. Efros and Elihu Abrahams.[5]
