    Famous Filipino physicists have not received the same amount of recognition as their North American or European counterparts. We hope the following provides some balance to this perspective. Some of the individuals listed below were trained in or worked in the United States. Although not all the following were strictly physicists, their contributions are in areas closely related to physics and are included in this list of famous Filipino physicists. Alcaraz, Arturo: was a leading member of a team that used steam produced from the heat of a volcano to produce electric power in 1967. Banatao, Diosdado: introduced or developed accelerator chips that improved computer performance, helped make the internet possible by contributing to the development of the Ethernet controller chip, created the local bus concept for personal computers. Campos, Paulo: wrote many papers in the field of nuclear medicine and was instrumental in building the first radioisotope lab in the Philippines. Paulo Campos - Filipino Scientist: Filipino scientist, Doctor Paulo Campos is a specialist in nuclear medicine and the award winning writer of over seventy-five scientific papers including: • Observation of Some Parameter of Insulin Action • Cr-51 Tagged Red Cell Studies • The Genetic Factor in Endemic Goiter Paulo Campos built the first radioisotope laboratory in the Philippines. Comiso, Josefino: the first person to discover a recurring area of open water in sea ice in the Cosmonaut Sea. Comiso was studying global warming at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. Josefino Comiso - Filipino Physicist: Josefino Comiso is a Filipino physicist working at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center studing global warming in the Arctic. Josefino Comiso was the first person to discover a recurring polynya in the Cosmonaut Sea, south of the Indian Ocean. A polynya is a semipermanent area of open water in sea ice. Maramba, Felix: developed a profitable biogas system, building a power generator fuelled by coconut oil. Zara, Gregorio: discovered around 1930 the law of electrical kinetic resistance (“Zara Effect”). In 1955 he patented a two-way videophone. In the 1950’s and 1960’s he developed or improved alternate energy technologies. Amado Muriel Dr. Amado Muriel was recognized because of his important works and marvelous contributions to the field of theoretical physics, in particular, his advancement of theoretical apparatus to clarify turbulence. His new kinetic equation is valuable for discovering essential problems of non- equilibrium statistical procedure. Dr. Muriel discovered the accurate and estimated solutions for the performance of a two-level system, which were considered by his peers as a revolutionary contribution to a quantum Turing machine, now a rising field in quantum computing. Also, in his studies on stellar dynamics, he has recognized realistically that self-gravitation alone is adequate to create a hierarchy of structures in one dimension. He has unselfishly used up his own time and wealth in training many undergraduate and graduate students and researches at numerous universities in the country. Dr. Muriel has also extensively contributed to the progress of theoretical physics in the country. Dr. Muriel was born on November 24, 1939 and elected Academician in year 2003. Apolinario D. Nazarea Dr. Nazarea made significant role to the theories on biophysics and recombinant biotechnology including his own conceptual framework on the structure of RNA/DNA investigation. Born on October 11, 1940. On the turning point of the country's technical course, his part in the expansion of biophysics and biotechnology is both essential and well timed. With his worldwide-cited systematic work and hypothetical expertise, he has laid the groundwork for the design of artificial vaccines on a sounder molecular beginning. Melecio S. Magno Dr. Melecio Magno has researched on the assimilation and fluorescence spectroscopy of crystals, particularly rare-earth crystals; effects of typhoons on the allotment of gravitation; and the idea of science. He also a co-author of a Textbook in physics at the University of the Philippines named University Physics. He was a receiver of UNDP-WMO Fellowship in environmental physics and ozone study in 1974 and UP Endowment Professorial Chair possessor in physics from 1973-1976. He also becomes Vice-President for Academic Affairs at the UP in 1975. Dr. Magno was also appointed Chairman of the National Science Development Board (NSDB) in 1976, and he became the first minister of Science in 1978 when the NSDB became a ministry. Dr. Magno was born on May 24, 1920. Casimiro del Rosario Dr. Casimiro del Rosario was honored with the Presidential Award in 1965 for his excellent works in physics, meteorology and astronomy. But he became more well-known because of his workings on soft x-rays. Aside from researching and experimentation, Dr. del Rosario led the Philippine Weather Bureau for 11 years and also the vice-chairman for the National Science Development Board.
