|About the PA | Member Index||Who is Hal Puthoff?|
Hal Puthoff is Director of the Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin. A
theoretical/experimental physicist, his research ranges from theoretical studies
of gravitation, inertia, cosmology and energy research, to laboratory studies of
innovative approaches to energy generation. A graduate of Stanford University in
1967, Dr. Puthoff's professional background spans more than four decades of
research at General Electric, Sperry, the National Security Agency, Stanford
University, SRI International, and, since 1985, as Director of the Institute for
Advanced Studies at Austin. He has published numerous technical papers and a
textbook (Fundamentals of Quantum Electronics, Wiley, 1969) on electron-beam
devices, lasers and quantum zero-point-energy effects; has patents issued in the
laser, communications, and energy fields; and is co-author of Mind Reach:
Scientists Look at Psychic Ability, Delacorte Press, 1977, and co-editor of Mind
at Large: IEEE Symposia on the Nature of Extrasensory Perception, Hampton Roads
