Integrated nano-photonics, slow light and polymer optics
Prof. Scheuer is a full professor and the head of the department of physical electronics at the school of EE, Tel Aviv University. He received the B.Sc. degree (summa cum laude) in electrical engineering and in physics, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel, in 1993 and 2001, respectively. He was a Chief Designer with Lambda crossing - an optical component startup specializing in microring resonators for two years.
Then, he joined the Center for the Physics of Information and the Department of Applied Physics, the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, as a Research Associate. During 2012-2013 he was a visiting Professor at the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Northwestern University. His research interests are light-matter interactions in the nano-scale, metamaterials & metasurfaces, novel semiconductor optoelectronic devices, PT-symmetric systems and quantum optics.
Prof. Scheuer is a Fellow of the OSA and of the SPIE.
