JERUSALEM (Oct. 23)
Tel Aviv University and the University of Leningrad have agreed to cooperate in a specialized field of scientific research.
The agreement, announced here Monday, was signed at the end of a 12-day visit by two senior Soviet scientists, Professors Michael Bulanin and Gelb Denisov.
Both belong to the department of molecular spectroscopy at the University of Leningrad. They had expressed interest in an association with Tel Aviv University and got an invitation from its department of geophysics and planetary sciences.
The agreement provides for Israeli professors to come to Leningrad for joint experiments with the Soviet scientists.
The first will be Professors Yuri Meckler and Akiva Bar-Nun, who expect to leave soon for the Soviet Union.
The University of Leningrad is world famous for its work in molecular spectroscopy, which is the examination of optical images produced by molecules.
