Joshua Foley Comer
Josh joined the lab as an undergraduate research assistant in 2020, participating in research projects in the field of discrete variable quantum optics. He completed his BSc studies in Electrical Engineering in March 2023 and joined the lab as a MSc student. His research focusses on subjects in quantum optics.
Guy Thsuva, email@example.com
Guy joined the lab in November 2021 as an M.Sc student in Physics. He holds a B.Sc in Physics and economics from the Tel Aviv University. His research focuses on nonlinear and quantum optics.
Gary completed his B.Sc in Physics and Astronomy in 2014, as well as his M.Sc in experimental Condensed Matter Physics in 2017, at Tel Aviv University. His master’s research was completed under the supervision of Dr. Tal Schwartz, in which he investigated various phenomena of ultrafast chemical physics, and measured the spatial dynamics of Exciton-Polaritons in organic micro-cavities for the first time. Currently he is applying his rich experience in quantum mechanics and optics in hydrodynamics, in order to study quantum and optical analogies in gravity surface water-waves , both theoretically and experimentally.
Aviv joined the lab in 2016 as part of his undergraduate project, and then graduated, summa cum laude, his B.Sc. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Physics in 2017 from Tel Aviv University. He then continued as a Physics M.Sc. student, focusing his research on nonlinear and quantum optics.
Ofir joined the lab in November 2018 as an M.Sc student. He holds a B.Sc in Electrical Engineering from the Technion. During his B.Sc he worked as a physics research assistant at a bio-medical company, studying the distribution of electric fields inside the human body. His research focuses on nonlinear optics.
Dolev Roitman, PhD student,
Dolev joined the lab at March 2019 as a PhD student in physics. He completed a B.Sc in Physics and Geophysics(in honor), as well as M.Sc in high intensity lasers and plasma physics at Tel Aviv University. His M.Sc research was completed under the supervision of Dr. Ishay Pomerantz, in which he developed a high-intensity solid target irradiation setup that works at a high repetition rate and investigated accelerated electrons from such interactions. During his last year of M.Sc Dolev worked in Eyeway Vision Ltd., developing and analyzing optical setups for mixed reality technology. His PhD research focuses on improving the resolution of electron microscopes using thin phase masks.
Zihao Pang, PhD student
Zihao joined the lab in October 2021 as a Ph.D. student. He received his B.Sc degree in Information Engineering in 2018 at South China Normal University, and then got his M.Sc degree in Optics in 2021 at Zhejiang University. Zihao is interested in physical phenomena of incoherent waves in various systems and currently is focusing his research on nonlinear optics.
Dr. Gil Bashan, Postdoc student
Dr. Gil Bashan received the B.Sc. degree in physics and electrical engineering from Bar-Ilan University in 2016, and the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the same University in 2018 and 2022, respectively. He is currently a post-doctoral fellow at the group of Prof. Ady Arie at Tel-Aviv University. His research interests include optical fiber propagation effects, opto-mechanics and quantum optics. Dr. Bashan received the Bar-Ilan University Rector Award for excellence in graduate studies in 2018. In 2020 he was awarded the Adams Fellowship for doctoral studies by the Israel National Academy of Sciences and Humanities.
