Renata Reisfeld (Hebrew: רנטה ריספלד) is an Israeli Professor of Chemistry and D.H.C. Enrique Berman Professor of Solar Energy at Institute of Chemistry of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel, author of 532 scientific papers cited more than 30,000 times.
Renata Reisfeld was born in Poland. She came to Israel in 1950 and graduated from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Her husband is Lazar Eliezer Reisfeld; her children are Danny and Gideon.
Reisfeld became the head of the science research team at The Institute of Chemistry of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 1975. Reisfeld's research interests are luminescent solar concentrators for decreasing the price of photovoltaic electricity, interaction of nanoparticles with luminescent species, anti-reflecting coating, and Sol-Gel glasses. She began developing solar concentrators with her research team in 1978.
Reisfeld co-organized (with Professor Georges Boulon of Lyon, France) 6 Israeli-French science conferences on Solid State Lasers and related subjects. Reisfeld also co-organized Israeli-Polish Science Conferences with Professor W. Strek, Professor J. Legendziewicz, Professor A. Suchocki, Professor M. Pietraszkiewicz, and Professor E. Rysiakiewicz-Pasek.
International science research cooperation by Reisfeld includes Professor A. Vaseashta (United States), Professor G. Boulon (France), Professor G. Baldacchini(Italy), Professor M. Casalboni(Italy), Professor C. Klingshorn (Germany), Professor D. Enke (Germany), Professor W. Strek, Professor J. Legendziewicz, Professor M. Pietraszkiewicz, Professor B. Jasinska, Professor A. Grabowska, Professor E. Rysiakiewicz-Pasek, Professor M. Grinberg, Profwssor J. Misiewicz, Dr. K. Wodnicka (Poland), Professor J. Daniel (Spain), Professor I. N. Mihailescu (Romania), Professor O. Malta (Brazil), Professor A. Patra (India), Professor J.-C. G. Bunzli (Switzerland), Professor Jurijs Dehtjars (Latvia), Professor B. Orel (Slovenia).
On 4 July 1976, Reisfeld was among the 102 hostages rescued by Israeli troops at the airport of Entebbe, Uganda. A week earlier, she had been a passenger aboard Air France flight 139 from Tel Aviv via Athens to Paris that was abducted by a commando of Palestinian and German air pirates attempting to press for the release of 55 mainly Palestinian prisoners held in Israel and other countries on terrorism charges. Reisfeld was one of several witnesses who shared their experiences in media interviews immediately after their return to Israel as well as on the occasion of the event's 40-year anniversary.
