Board Member of the History of Physics Group, European Physical Society since 2010.

Scientific Results:

    Demetrius Mutieff. After work in Bulgarian government archives and SIBAL, Demetrius Mutieff's contribution in theoretical physics and metheorology in XIX century was marked for the first time [1]. His activities in Russia (1843 1856) is not clear yet [1, pp. 165-208]. Doctorate thesis "De Psychrometria" (1842) was fond in Bulgaria [13].

    Physics and Mathematics textbooks in XIX century. Working with archives of Nayden Gerov [2, pp. 65-176], Joakim Gruev [2, pp. 229-293], Emanuil Vaskidovich [9], Bulgarian Central eparchial school in Plovdiv [3-5, 24] and textbooks on physics [10] and mathematics [9], published up to 1878 the sources, used by Nayden Gerov are fund [2], and the stages are defined.

    Education on Physics expressing by Bulgarian secondary school curriculums and textbooks [2], [8] are examined up to 1925 [12].

    Education on Physics in the Sofia University from 1889 to 1950. Lectures [4] and scientific results of Prof. P. Bachmetiew [5], [6], Prof. G. Maneff [16-17, 28], [8], Prof. G. Nadjakov [6], independent physics speciality creation [7], and education in doctorate in physics in Bulgaria during the thirties of XX century [14] are determined.

    Research [3] on Physics [11] in the Sofia University from 1889 to 1950 [18] are devided by experimental [15, 25] and teoretical [7], [26, 32, 41] results.

    Milko Borissov [38]. In the field of solid state physics [12] Milko Borissov worked with one hundred co-authors and made 403 publications in 30 different areas, because his research model has cyclic direction between science reports, patented inventions, and manufactured technologies [31]. Semi-conductors mono-crystal growth has great importance for Bulgarian solid-state physics experiments during the second half of XX century [3]. Milko Borissov's research on history of physics has two stages [29]. He examined development of the physics in Bulgaria mainly.
