Prof. Yoav Lahini

School of Physics and Astronomy



Dr. Yoav Lahini is setting up a new Complex Systems Lab. The aim of the lab is to promote the understanding of the physics of soft and disordered matter in far-from-equilibrium conditions, using advanced measurement techniques and computational tools.


Research achievements include: observation and characterization of  long-lasting memory effects in mesoscopic systems, development of an ultra-fast label free technique for tracking single viruses, observation of topological states in disordered and quasi-periodic systems, observation of localization and its modification by nonlinearity in disordered systems, studying the effect of interactions in multi-particle quantum walks and their use in quantum information processing.


Future directions include: seeking universal principles governing the dynamics of disordered matter in far from equilibrium conditions, studying the mechanics of frustrated and topological metamaterials, exploring macroscopic self-assembly and studying biophysics at the nanoscale using smart illumination and advanced imaging, microscopy and nanoscopy techniques.
