The NanoOpto group is affiliated with the Applied Physics Department at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel. Our research is mainly focused on Silicon Photonics, Polarization Optics, Plasmonics and Opto-Fluidics.
Our group will host SPP7 in Jerusalem from 31 of may till the 5 of June 2015:
We are looking for outstanding and highly motivated post docs and Ph.D students to work on new and exciting projects in the field of Light-Vapour Interactions at the Nanoscale.
Please contact Uriel Levy at ulevy at cc.huji.ac.il for further information.
