Whilst in Strasbourg, Fröhlich received an invitation from Frenkel to go—as a ‘Foreign Expert’—to the Physico-Technical Institute in what was then Leningrad (now St. Petersburg); the Director of the Institute was A.F. Joffe . This invitation arose from the paper with Bethe [F8], mentioned in Chap. 1, which turned out to be the last one Fröhlich wrote before leaving Germany, in which, it will be recalled, they had shown that a recent attempt by Frenkel (Phys Rev 43:907–912, 1933) to understand certain aspects of superconductivity were flawed.
