Prof. Zalevsky’s field of research is electro-optics, specifically, imaging and super-resolution, biomedical sensing, and nanophotonic. Several of the technologies developed in his lab were commercialized through the Bar-Ilan Research and Development Company, and have become leading Israeli start-ups.
Here we have exciting and challenging opportunities with two such industry collaborated research projects one in the field of optical wavefront shaping for non-invasive imaging through scattering medium and the other in human vision correction in the human eye using patented technologies.
