Dr. Elihau Cohen

From Quantum Foundations to Optical Quantum Technologies


My name is Eli Cohen and I'm a senior lecturer at the Faculty of Engineering. Also member of the Institute for Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials   and the center for Quantum Entanglement Science&Technology.

Last semester I taught a graduate course on Quantum Computation (83807) and next year I'll add to it undergraduate courses on Applied Quantum Mechanics and Applied Thermodynamics.

I'm now looking for graduate students and postdocs.

I did my PhD (thesis title: "Time and Nonlocality in Quantum Mechanics") at Tel Aviv University under the supervision of Profs. Yakir Aharonov and Lev Vaidman. I then continued to a postdoc at the University of Bristol (specializing in quantum information with Prof. Sandu Popescu) and to a research associate position at the University of Ottawa (specializing in quantum photonics with Prof. Ebrahim Karimi). I've been working on a variety of topics ranging from quantum foundations and quantum information to quantum optics and quantum field theory. A main theme in many of the above works was Quantum Entanglement. I've been also doing a little bit of  research in the areas of quantum gravity/cosmology and even classical physics/engineering.


I'm a theorist, but over the years I've enjoyed fruitful collaborations with various experimental groups.



Here's a brief article in Hebrew and English about quantum engineering (and myself).
