Research in BINA's Nano-Photonics Center encompasses two main areas: imaging and vision, and optic information transport. BINA scientists are improving imaging techniques for biological materials, while examining the atomic-level magnetism that may someday allow computer engineers to exceed the classical bounds of processing speed and information bandwidth. By combining experimental and theoretical approaches, BIU researchers are helping to advance our understanding and control of the quantum behavior of light.
