The Light-2D matter-Interaction group explores the interaction between light and 2D materials, and the physical and optical phenomena they inhabit. We utilize several experimental techniques to perform room-temperature and low-temperature electro-optical spectroscopy, from the visible to the far-infrared spectrum. In addition, we develop robust optical methods specifically adapted to 2D material and their atomic dimension. We use these approaches to study the extraordinary properties of 2D materials, to push nanophotonics into the atomic scale, and to build atomic-scale electronic and opto-electronic devices.
Itai Epstein is an Assistant Professor at Tel Aviv University, Department of Physical Electronics, School of Electrical Engineering. He obtained his B.Sc and a M.Sc (Magna Cum Laude) in physics, and his PhD in Electrical Engineering from Tel Aviv University, Israel. After a time period spent as a postdoctoral fellow at ICFO - The institute of photonic sciences, Barcelona, Spain, at the group of Prof. Frank Koppens, he joined the Department of Physical Electronics at TAU as faculty, establishing the Light-2D Matter-Interaction research group.
