Abram Fedorovich Jaffe (1880-1960), Soviet physicist. Jaffe (sometimes spelt Ioffe) studied electromagnetism, radiology, and semiconductor physics. He also oversaw the expansion of work in radioactivity, superconductivity and nuclear physics. In 1918, he became the head of what would later (after St Petersburg was renamed Leningrad) be called the Leningrad Physico-Technical Institute. The institute is now called the Ioffe Physico-Technical Institute in his honour. Photographed in Russia in 1947.
