SEDYKH VIKTOR MATVEEVICH
Matveevich Sedykh was born in
on the 5-th of May 1928.
After leaving secondary school he has
entered to Kharkov Electrotechnical Institute in 1946, and he has gone over to Kharkov
State University (KSU) in 1948. On graduating at KSU in 1952 he has became one of the
first instructors of the opened Radiophysical School. In 1960 he has defended the Candidate
thesis (eq. PhD) entitled as “Investigation of ridged and H-section waveguides” and in
1977 he has defended the thesis in partion of Doctor
of Phys;Math Sci Degree, which was entitled as “Investigations of superband
waveguides and microstrips transmission lines and some types of functional elements”. In
1963 he has received the Associate Professor rank and 1979 he has received the Full
Professor rank. From the 1963 to 1983 he is the Chair of the Department of Physics of
Ultra High Frequencies and in 1963-1968 he is the Dean of Radiophysical School at KSU.
The principle position in forming of V.M.Sedykh as radiophysisist made up his
diploma investigations at Ukrainian Physical-Technical Institute and his practice at
University. The V.M.Sedykh’s experience in
principle scientific centers of the
allows to choose the perspective
directions of scientific investigations, to open up the modern theoretical and
experimental methods in these investigations of propagation structures.
One can detect the V.M.Sedykh’s
nonordinary organization talents, which appears in ability to flame up the scientific team
by origin idea or to carry along students by scientific investigations. The seriousness of
scientific problems and fundamental character of its realization find wide response in
scientific community. A lot of publications in native scientific editions were the results
of these investigations. He was the leader of the first applied scientific contract.
The main scientific interest of V.M.Sedykh’s investigations was the study of the
rules of electromagnetic waves propagation in wideband structures of UHF band –
waveguides with complicated form of cross section and microstrips. The investigations
carried out under the direction of V.M.Sedykh allow to design a whole series of devices
and elements of UHF band which use in space and surface communication systems. The list of
publications of V.M.Sedykh consists of 3 monographs, 117 papers, 5 patents is generally
recognized in scientific community.
Viktor Matveevich Sedykh was the founder of scientific trend and scientific school:
5 of his followers defended Candidate thesis and 2 of them defended the Doctoral thesis
V.M.Sedykh’s activity as the Chair of the Department of Physics of Ultra High
Frequencies was aimed to increase the Department’s scientific level and to wide
scientific interestings. The high personal erudition, broad-mind, the support of
investigations in adjacent areas bring to establishing strong scientific and
methodological contacts with leading centers in the USSR: in Moscow, Kiev, Gorky,
Kindness atmosphere, auspicious conditions, excellent conditions for scientific
investigations with the aggregate of high exactingness in education questions and
student’s training get the best opinions in student community.
The established friendly contacts with graduates of the Department are supporting
for along many years. The scientific contacts with graduates gave new ideas for applied
V.M.Sedykh had medal “For brave labor in commemoration of the 100-th
V.I.Lenin’s birth anniversary”.
