International activities
  • Weizmann Institute-Yale University Joint Research Program
    Israel (2008-Present)
    The goal of this project is study certain fundamental properties of electrons in metals, especially the "persistent current" phenomenon, in which current can flow through a resistive metal in the absence of a voltage.

  • Quantum Aspects of Optomechanical Systems
    Canada, Germany (2007-Present)
    The goal of this project is to understand, using experiments and theoretical calculations, how quantum mechanics can manifest itself in large mechanical oscillators, particularly in their interaction with light.
