The research of my group has always been experimental and theoretical projects, within the general area of photonics / lasers / quantum electronics. We are interested in two types of projects: exploring fundamental aspects, with impact on other areas of science (beyond photonics), and profound applications – that can have a real impact on technology.
Our current topics of research are:
- Topological photonics (photonic topological insulators, topological insulator lasers, artificial gauge fields in photonics, etc.)
- Light and disorder (Anderson localization of light, hyper-transport, localization by deep-subwavelength disorder, etc.)
- Structure-based subwavelength imaging, and super-resolution in space, time, frequency and in quantum systems. (with my colleagues Prof. Oren Cohen and Prof. Yonina Eldar)
- Curved space photonics and photonic devices inspired by General Relativity concepts.
- Complex nonlinear optofluidics
Each of these topics has multiple projects, where the students and postdocs do both theory and experiments. The topics are quite dynamics, and vary with time – following new ideas that naturally come up while carrying out research.
