Most of his career he worked in the Institute of Solid State Physics in Chernogolovka, near Moscow.

He received the highest honor for young scientists in the USSR, the Komsomol prize, for his discovery of thermomagnetic and galvanomagnetic waves, which can propagate in metals.[1]


Kopylov graduated from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology in 1970, specialising in Radiophysics and Electronics.[2]


Authoring many papers,[3] his work in collaboration with I. F. Scgegolev and others led to understanding of the Meissner effect in high-Tc superconductors through the surface barrier effect, also known as Bean–Livingston barrier.[4]
