The physics department aims to provide a welcoming environment for students at all levels to engage with physics in the classroom and research laboratory with a dedicated faculty at the cutting edge of photonics research. Students obtain a sound grounding in physics for a wide range of careers of their choice.
Yuhao Kang, Xiang Ni, Xiaojun Cheng, Alexander Khanikaev, and Azriel Genack, published the article entitled “Pseudospin-valley coupled edge states in a photonic topological insulator” in Nature Communications.
In collaboration with researchers in the group of Mordechai Segev (Technion, Israel), Azriel Genack published an article in Science demonstrating the localization of light in a sample composed of layers 100 times thinner than the wavelength of light.
Prof. Bensemanhas published an article in Nature Scientific Reports demonstrating the manipulation of individual vortices in a superconducting film enabling novel high-speed low-power superconducting electronics
