Internship

The intern performs measurements for a several mechanisms and machines, database analysis, and analysis of experiment results. Testing lasers is another important task.

Company/Organization

Visionix is a company that develops, manufactures and distributes innovative equipment and provides complete solution for ophthalmologists, opticians and laboratories. Its products were developed based its innovative-patented technology, which provides simultaneous multi-point measurements of all the parameters of a lens. The technology, originated by the impressive list of company scientists, was previously involved in the "Star wars" space project.

Qualifications

Mechanical Engineering or Physics Student

Field(s)

Internship

The research assistant will set up and operate various scientific apparatus, assist with research projects, compile processes and analyze data, as well as record research procedures and results.

Company/Organization

The Quantum Coherence Lab (QCL) at the Hebrew University explores the phenomena of macroscopic quantum coherence and decoherence. They study superconducting Josephson circuits, in which macroscopic physical quantities such as magnetic flux behave quantum mechanically. They also study implementations of macroscopic quantum coherence in slow and stored light in atomic ensembles, manipulating and storing non-trivial patterns of light and subsequently retrieving them.

Qualifications

BSc through post-Doctorate in Physics

Field(s)

Internship

The engineering intern will perform some or all of the following:
* operate and manage analytical instruments and laboratory equipment
* synthesize and characterize materials using a variety of techniques
* collect, screen, and analyze laboratory data
* apply safety policies in the workplace
* submit well-written reports on experimental progress

Company/Organization

Qlight Nanotech (subsidiary of Merck) develops nanocrystals with unique optical properties for numerous applications, including technologies that can revolutionize the mechanism of action of flat panel displays. Its innovative film technology for LCD displays uses unique nanocrystals for reducing energy consumption while significantly improving the color quality. The technology can nearly double the battery run time in mobile devices, and reduce by almost half the energy consumption of TV sets. The company's film also improves the color quality of the display thus dramatically upgrading the user's viewing experience.

Qualifications

Work experience in nanophysics required.

Internship

The research assistant will set up and operate various scientific apparatus, assist with research projects, compile processes and analyze data, as well as record research procedures and results. The intern will be able to gain from working with Professor Yuri Feldman who has 30+ years experience in physics and dielectric spectroscopy.

Company/Organization

The Center for Electromagnetic Research was established in 2008 as a joint project of the Ministry of Science and The Department of Applied Physics of the Hebrew University. Its aim is to provide industry and academia the access to state of the art EM spectroscopy. Based on the existent expertise of the Dielectric Spectroscopy Laboratory it aims to be a "one stop shop" offering spectroscopy in the widest possible frequency range (10-6 Hz to 1012 Hz) in a university setting.

Qualifications

Physics, engineering, chemistry.
