Senior Scientist I – the highest scientific degree in Romania
Advanced Studies in Physics Centre of the Romanian Academy, Romania
Eliade Stefanescu graduated the Faculty of Electronics, Section of Physicist Engineers, in 1970, and obtained a PhD in Theoretical Physics in 1990. As a Scientist from 1976, a Senior Scientist III from 1978, he worked in technology of semiconductor devices. From 1978, he worked in physics of optoelectronic devices. From 1987, and from 1990 as a Senior Scientist II, he worked in the field of open quantum physics. In 1991 he discovered that the penetrability of a potential barrier can be increased by coupling to a dissipative system, and described the decay spectrum of some cold fission modes. As a Senior Scientist I, from 1997 he developed a microscopic theory of open quantum systems, and discovered a physical principle for the heat conversion into usable energy. In 2014, he produced a unitary relativistic quantum theory. In the years 1995-2000, he held a course called Dissipative Systems for the master degree.
Professional with multidisciplinary openness: electronics, physics and technology of semiconductor devices, physics of open quantum systems with applications to basic phenomena in quantum optics and nuclear physics.
