Professor Peter L. Hagelstein is a principal investigator in the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He received the B.S. and the M.S. in 1976, and the Ph.D. in electrical engineering in 1981, from MIT. He was a staff member of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory from 1981 to 1985 before joining the MIT faculty in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in 1986.

Professor Hagelstein’s early work focused on EUV and soft X-ray lasers, relativistic atomic structure and electron collisional physics, ionic autoionization and dielectronic recombination processes, plasma population kinetics, radiation transport, and large scale physics simulation. He received the Ernest Orlando Lawrence Award in 1984 for his innovation and creativity in X-ray laser physics.

His recent efforts have included the invention of semiconductor technology that could allow efficient, affordable production of electricity from a variety of energy sources, as well as continuing investigations of low-energy nuclear reactions. Professor Hagelstein is the co-author of a new textbook, “Introductory Applied Quantum and Statistical Mechanics,” and chaired the Tenth International Conference on Cold Fusion in 2003.
