    Prof. Dror Fixler Named Fellow of Prestigious Optics and Photonics Society

    Date: 2019-01-07 Hour: 8:20

    Prof. Dror Fixler, of the Alexander Kofkin Faculty of Engineering and Director of the Institute of Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials, has been named a Fellow of The International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE). Prof Fixler received this prestigious honor for his technical achievement in nanophotonics and nanomedicine and for his service to the general optics community and to SPIE in particular.

    SPIE is the international society for optics and photonics, an educational, not-for-profit organization founded in 1955 to advance light-based science, engineering, and technology. Each year, SPIE promotes Members as new Fellows of the Society. Fellows are Members of distinction who have made significant scientific and technical contributions in the multidisciplinary fields of optics, photonics, and imaging. Prof. Fixler is being recognized for his technical achievements and for his service to the general optics community and to SPIE in particular.

    In addition to directing the Nano Institute, Prof. Fixler is a member of the NanoPhotonics Center, and researcher and lecturer at the Alexander Kofkin Faculty of Engineering. Prof. Fixler is a BIU-educated expert in electro-optics and photonics research including the emission, transmission, detection, and sensing of light for biomedical properties. His primary foci are developing new technologies for super-resolution microscopy, medical testing, and communications networks.

    Prof. Fixler received his Ph.D. from the Department of Physics at Bar-Ilan University. He has published over 90 original research papers and holds over 12 issued patents. His research interests include fluorescence measurements (FLIM and anisotropy decay), optical super-resolution, high-end electro-optical system engineering, and light-tissue interaction. Prof. Fixler has received several international awards and organized and presented at over 80 international conferences.
