Alon Ron Lab

The Zuckerman Faculty Scholars program, funds leading researchers and supports the purchase and construction of laboratories and specialized equipment. The program thus provides vital resources to Israeli universities, allowing them to compete with top North American institutions for the most promising candidates.

The program facilitates the return of top Israeli scholars to Israeli institutions, cultivates world class scientific talent, and in turn, attracts outstanding postdoctoral researchers from top Western universities, creating a cycle of excellence.

Since the program opened in 2016, 23 Zuckerman labs have been established in Israel.

Scholar Profile

As an undergraduate, Alon Ron, a double major in physics and electrical engineering, debated whether to take on engineering challenges for his career, or to resolve basic science questions as a physicist. A week at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee (which he describes as “magnificent”) gave him an appetite for basic science, leading him to complete a direct PhD in Physics at Tel Aviv University. From there, he went on to Caltech for a postdoc.

Returning to TAU, in the School of Physics and Astronomy, Dr. Ron combines his interest in quantum phenomena in nano scale devices, which he developed during his doctoral work, with his expertise in ultrafast optical spectroscopy of quantum materials, which he gained during his postdoc.  His goal is to dynamically stabilize out-of-equilibrium electronic phases of matter in quantum materials.

He is grateful to be a Zuckerman fellow, allowing him to quickly set up his lab, train students, and undertake his research, as well as join a network of bright minds from different backgrounds, which he points out is a crucial aspect of science today. He also hopes to reconnect with his engineering training, achieving greater understanding of novel materials which could serve as platforms for the realization of future technology.
