Miroslav Adlešič (13 December 1907 – 9 February 2002) was a Slovene physicist, specialist in acoustics, author of numerous books and textbooks on physics.

Adlešič was born in Postojna in 1907. He graduated from the University of Ljubljana in 1930. For a long time taught in secondary schools and from 1961 lectured in experimental physics, biophysics and musical acoustics at the Ljubljana Academy of Music. He wrote a number of popular science books as well as school textbooks on physics. He died in 2002.[1]
