Edisher Kaghashvili (Georgian: ედიშერ კაღაშვილი; born 11 April 1971) is an American physicist who worked in Academia in both Georgia and the United States.
Career11 April 1971
Edisher Kaghashvili was born in Rustavi, Georgia, and studied physics at Tbilisi State University, graduating in 1993. After graduation, he worked as an aspirant, and later as a researcher at the Abastumani Astrophysical Observatory of the Georgian Academy of Sciences in Tbilisi. He received his Ph.D. degree from the University of New Hampshire (UNH) in 2002 and worked at the University of California, Riverside, and UNH before going into industry.
While in Academia, his main interest was wave phenomena in physics including plasma physics and space physics. In 2002/3, he discovered inhomogeneity generated waves that exist in any system/medium with inhomogeneities. These waves and introduced processes because of their presence have widespread applications in many areas of modern physics: fluid & plasma physics, space physics, magnetosphere physics, ionosphere physics, laboratory physics, etc.
In 2013, the NASA scientist/manager was found presenting the scientific work at the conference, and his work together with co-workers was lifting the proposal by Dr. Kaghashvili that was submitted to his program and rejected. Because this was not the first case, the casework submitted through senator Jeanne Shaheen’s office, resulted in NASA’s promise that original work will be referenced. Many years passed and the promise never was fulfilled. Dr. Kaghashvili’s discoveries are of fundamental nature, and hence not patent protected. The only solution: upholding scientific standards and ethical conduct rules. The same NASA program manager, the same people funded by NASA, NSF, etc. and many of their fellow scientists who knew Edisher Kaghashvili’s work are still publishing work, see the effects of the discovered physics, and show no scientific integrity and moral character to at least acknowledge his work.
