Technology Founder, Former Chairman & Chief Scientist
Dr. Ruggero Maria Santilli
Currently President and Chief Scientist of
Thunder Fusion Corporation
Dr. Santilli initiated the MagneGas technology in 1998 via the identification of the new chemical species of magnecules from which he suggested the name of “MagneGas” for the fuel produced.
Ruggero Santilli was born and educated in Italy where he achieved his Ph.D., the highest possible education in mathematics and physics, as well as a chair in nuclear physics at the Avogadro Institute in Turin. In 1967 Santilli was invited by the University of Miami in Florida to conduct research for NASA and he moved with his family to the U.S.A. where he subsequently became a U.S. citizen. In 1968 he joined the faculty of Boston University, under partial support from the U.S. Air Force, where he taught physics and applied mathematics from prep courses to seminar post-Ph.D. courses. In 1975-1977 he went to MIT and from 1978 to 1983 he was a member of Harvard University where he received five grants from the U. S. Department of Energy to study a generalization of quantum mechanics and chemistry needed for new clean energies and fuels. Since 1984 he is the President of the Institute for Basic Research, originally located in a Victorian inside Harvard University and moved to Florida in 1990. Santilli is the author of some 250 technical articles and 18 post Ph.D. level monographs in mathematics, physics, cosmology, superconductivity, chemistry and biology published the world over. He is the founding editor of three journals in mathematics and physics and editor of several others. Santilli is known in mathematics for the discovery of a series of new numbers, now called “Santilli iso-, geno-, hyper- and isodual-numbers” and other discoveries; he is known in physics as the originator of “hadronic mechanics”, the only known consistent broadening of quantum mechanics predicting new clean energies; and he is known in chemistry as the originator of “hadronic chemistry”, a broadening of quantum chemistry developed for the study of new clean fuels. Santilli is among the most illustrious applied mathematicians of all times; he received two gold medals for scientific merits; and the listing as “Santilli Hall” of a class room at an Australian research center. Since the 80s, he has been recommended by scholars around the world to the nominations for the Nobel Prize in physics as well as in chemistry. A scientific meeting was organized in June 2005 at the University of Karlstad, Sweden, to honor Santilli’s 70-th birthday with participation of scientists from 50 countries.
