Konstantin Nikolaevich Solovyov (b. 30.03.1933, Leningrad), a scientist in the field of spectroscopy and luminescence of polyatomic molecules. Corresponding Member of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (1994), Doctor of Physico-Mathematical Sciences (1970), Professor (1976).
Works on the study of the polarization of luminescence, electronic-vibrational spectra, the electronic structure of excited states of chlorophyll-type molecules and the processes of conversion of the energy of light excitation in molecular systems based on them. Determined the symmetry of the molecules of porphyrins and metalloporphyrins. Gave a general and detailed interpretation of the electronic-vibrational spectra of porphin and its analogues. Investigated low-temperature reactions of photoautomerization of porphyrins, the study of which marked the beginning of a new direction in high-resolution molecular spectroscopy — photo burning of stable spectral dips.
Author of more than 300 scientific papers, incl. 5 monographs, 14 inventions.
State Prize of the BSSR in 1980 for the series of works "Photonics of biologically important pigments and their analogues." State Prize of the USSR in 1986 for the series of works "Photoburning of stable spectral dips and selective spectroscopy of complex molecules".
Awarded with medals.
