Nikolay Kornilov, PhD, DSc, Research Scientist at Ohio University, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Scientists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in Nuclear Physics.
Dr. Kornilov is a noted research scientist and the recipient of a 2008 Best Peer Reviewed Scientific Paper from JRC-IRMM, the Joint Research Centre’s Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements in Belgium (JRC-IRMM). The institute is charged with providing common and reliable metrics for the European measurement system, some of which rely on the properties of nuclear physics. For example, the precision beams of some isotopes are used to calibrate atomic clocks.
Born in Russia on May 26, 1946, Dr. Kornilov attended the Khlopin Insititue in Leningrad, Russia to earn a PhD in 1982. The site was well known for research in nuclear physics, as well as radiochemistry and geochemistry. Later, Dr. Kornilov worked for the Russian Institute of Physics and Power Engineering (IPPE-Russia) and the JRC-IRMM. He ultimately joined Ohio University in Athens as a visiting scholar of accelerator lab 213. In 1997, Dr. Kornilov earned a DSc with the IPPE in Obninsk, Russia.
Dr. Kornilov is known for his research in the flight neutron spectrometer and neutron detector calibration. He is responsible for much of the data files for some fissile isotopes which were included in the International Atomic Energy Agency library. In particular, neutron detection is a critical part of safe nuclear energy, as well as the detection of cosmic rays and nuclear materials. Dr. Kornilov is the recipient of a Marquis Who’s Who Humanitarian Award, and has been featured in the pages of Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who in Science and Engineering. Additionally, he has received a Lifetime Achievement award. He has a son, Anton.
