Congratulations to Dr. Assaf Hamo

Congratulations to Dr. Assaf Hamo on winning the prestigious Zuckerman Scholarship, which is intended to support the absorption of outstanding scientists in the field of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

Dr. Assaf Hamo's joining the family of Zuckerman colleagues is a sign of respect and appreciation for both Dr. Hamo and the department.

Dr. Assaf Hamo joined the Department of Physics about a year ago from Harvard University. His research deals with the development of quantum sensors based on foreign atoms in diamonds.

This research is particularly important as the knowledge gained through these sensors can be channeled to a variety of directions, including: GPS development, which is not dependent on satellites.
