Alexander Sudyin, a 1st-year master's student at The Institute of physics and chemistry of the Institute of Physics and Chemistry of Ogarev Mordovia State University, became an owner of the scholarship certificate. The second scholarship certificate was awarded on September 1, 2020.

Recall that in 2019, "Optical fiber Systems" JSC established a scholarship in honor of the eminent scientist in the field of optical fiber, laser physics and optical materials science and the ideologist of the creation of Russia's first plant for the production of optical fiber Yevgeny Mikhailovich Dianov.

Every year, students of the Institute of Physics and Chemistry of Ogarev Mordovia State University who have achieved high results in the field of fiber optics can apply for payment.

Taratynova Alina, the 4th year student, became the first owner of the named scholarship. Now Alina is finishing her master's degree and plans to continue her research in postgraduate studies.

We wish Alexander success and new victories!


Academician Evgeny Mikhailovich Dianov (January 31, 1936 - January 30, 2019) - Soviet and Russian physicist, academician of Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) (1994), an eminent scientist in the field of optical fiber, laser physics and optical materials science, founder of the scientific center of fiber optics, its long-term Director and academic adviser.

For many years the works of Evgeny Mikhailovich Dianov have determined the last trends of researches in the field of fiber optics. He was a mentor for more than 80 Candidates and Doctors of Sciences. Scientific achievements of Evgeny Dianov and his administrative activity deserved and were marked by many national and foreign awards, titles and state awards including the  “Order for Service to the Motherland” of IV degree, Order of the Badge of Honour, Order of Friendship, two State Awards, RAS Gold medal in the name of S.I.

Popov, award of USSR Academy of Science – GDR Academy of Science and the award of IEEE Photonic Society-Optical Society of America in the name of John Tyndall.

“Optic fiber Systems” JSC ( – is the first and the only Russian plant manufacturing optical fiber. The plant is situated in Saransk, Mordovia Republic. It was officially opened on 25 September   2015. The shareholders of the company are RUSNANO, Gazprombank and the Government of Mordovia Republic.

Optical fiber is the main component of optic cables for signal transmission in modern communication networks. Fiber is also used as a sensor for monitoring deformation, temperature, acoustics and other indicators.

"Optic fiber Systems" JSC produces telecommunication optical fibers of standards G652 and G 657 A1 including those with reduced diameter of 200 microns; provides services on optical fiber coloring and the application of ring marks "ringmarking". Optical fibers of new types such as G651 and G655 are being prepared for release. Products are certified in Russia and the quality is confirmed by "Rostelecom" PJSC, Russia's leading cable companies and foreign consumers.

According to the results of certification, optical fiber was approved for use on the networks of the largest Russian Telecom operators Rostelecom, MTS, MegaFon and others.

Manufacturing capacity of the plant is 4 mln kilometers of optical fiber per year.
