Welcome

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
