Professor Mordechai Segev
   

Mordechai (Moti) Segev is the Trudy and Norman Louis Professor of Physics, at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel, and a Visiting Professor of Electrical Engineering, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, USA.   He has received his B.Sc. and D.Sc. from the Technion, Israel, in 1985 and 1990, respectively. Moti Segev has spent one year at Caltech as a post-doctoral fellow and two more years as a Senior Research Fellow. He joined Princeton in September of 1994 as an Assistant Professor, becoming an Associate Professor in 1997, and a Professor in 1999. In the summer of 1998, Moti Segev went back to his home country, Israel, and joined the Technion.

Moti Segev's research interests are mainly in Nonlinear Optics, Solitons, and Quantum Electronics, although he finds some entertainment in Thermodynamics, Nonlinear Dynamics, and more demanding fields such as basketball and hiking. He has more than 190 publications in refereed journals, 8 book chapters, and has given more than 50 invited presentations at conferences. Among his most significant contributions are the discoveries of photorefractive spatial solitons, self-trapping of solitons made of incoherent white light (from an incandescent light bulb), and of solitons in 2D periodic structures (e.g., nonlinear photonic lattices).  Moti Segev is a Fellow of the Optical Society of America (1997), a Fellow of the American Physical Society (2000). He has won several awards, among them the Sloan Research Award in Physics (USA, 1995), the Braun-Roger-Siegl Research Award of the Israeli Science Foundation (2002), and the Taub Prize (the highest research excellence prize given by the Technion to its own faculty), 2003. He served as the General Chair and Program Chair of several international conferences, and is currently serving as the Topical Editor on Nonlinear Optics in the premiere optics magazine Optics Letters. However, above all his personal achievements Moti Segev takes pride in the success of the graduate students and post-doctoral fellows that have worked with him over the years, many of them are now university professors in the US (including at Princeton and MIT), Germany, Taiwan, Croatia, Italy, etc.
