Warm congratulations to Dr. Mor Nitzan and Dr. Yonit Hochberg for being awarded the prestigious ERC starting grant

16 January, 2022

ברכות חמות לד"ר יונית הוכברג ממכון רקח לפיסיקה ולד"ר מור ניצן ממכון רקח לפיסיקה, מבית הספר להנדסה ומדעי המחשב והפקולטה לרפואה, על זכיית כל אחת מהן בפרס ה- ERC היוקרתי.
המחקר התיאורטי של ד״ר הוכברג  אשר זכה בפרס עוסק באחת התעלומות הגדולות של היקום: החומר האפל. ד״ר הוכברג מציעה רעיונות חדשים לזהות החלקיקית של החומר האפל, ומפתחת רעיונות פורצי דרך כדי לגלות אותו במעבדה. מחקרה האינטרדיסציפלינרי יושב בחזית בין פיסיקת חלקיקים, חומר מעובה, הנדסת חומרים וחישה קוונטית, וסולל את הדרך לגילוי החומר האפל.

Summer undergraduate workshop 2021 open for applications (deadline June 24)

14 June, 2021

The Racah Institute of Physics Welcomes You!

The Racah Institute of Physics is a center for excellence in physics research in Israel. Every summer, we welcome a new group of undergraduates for a 1-week introduction to the areas of physics we study. If you are finishing your 2nd year of undergraduate studies, and are interested in pursuing a MSc and PhD in physics, we want you to come meet current physics faculty and students at HUJI, tour our labs, and hear about life in Jerusalem.

"Measuring and controlling electric conductivity through a single atom" by Itai Keren and Prof. Hadar Steinberg

22 July, 2020

Recent work by Itai Keren (a Ph.D student at Prof. Hadar Steinberg's group) along with co-authors provides a method to produce a transistor from a single atom. The article was published in Nature Communications under the title "Quantum Dot Assisted Spectroscopy of Degeneracy Lifted Landau Levels in Graphene” (For the full paper see here) and also presented in Ynet.
