Welcome to the Advanced Photonics Research Lab’s homepage.

We are an international team of researchers that includes postdocs, graduate students and technicians. We aim to explore, demonstrate and utilize sub-wavelength light phenomena at the nano-scale for  novel devices and applications in super-resolution imaging, focusing, spectroscopy and optical communication. Our research spans from basic science to device applications and includes modern techniques in Nonlinear Optics, Near-field microscopy and wave-front shaping.  WE ARE ALWAYS INTERESTED IN ENTHUSIASTIC SCIENTISTS. Being a part of the Russell Berrie Nanotechnology Institute (RBNI), we can offer access to  state-of-the-art facilities in optics labs, clean rooms, fabrication tools as well as scientific guidance and large-scale collaboration projects.

The group leader is  prof. Guy Bartal of  the department of Electrical Engineering at the Technion and  the Russell Berrie Nanotechnology Institute (RBNI) . His previous scientific achievements (also as a part of a research team at UC Berkeley)  include:

- Demonstration of negative refraction and negative index metamaterials. (These works were selected to be among  the 50 best inventions of 2008 by TIME magazine.)

- Demonstration of cloaking device at optical frequencies.

- Demonstration of nano-scale lasing devices.

- Nonlinear negative refraction

- a 3D Hyperlens
