In 1992, this institution as a legal entity in the status of a separate Department of Magnetism of the Institute of Electrodynamics became a member of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, which in 2005 was transformed into the Scientific and Technical Center for Magnetism of Technical Objects (STC MTO of the NAS of Ukraine) with the rights of a research Institute.
Nonlinear electrodynamics was proposed by Born and Infeld as founded on two basic principles: to consider electromagnetic field and particles within the frame of one physical entity which is electromagnetic field and to avoid letting physical quantities become infinite [34].
Note that unlike the field strength in Maxwell electrodynamics, the one in BI electrodynamics is finite at r = 0.
