AGASS - Ariel University
Asher Yahalom is a Full Professor and the former Vice Dean in the Faculty of Engineering at Ariel University and the Academic Director of the free-electron laser user center which is located within the University Center campus. He was born in Israel on November 15, 1968, received the B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees in mathematics and physics from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel in 1990, 1991, and 1996 respectively. Asher Yahalom was a postdoctoral fellow (1998) in the department of electrical engineering of Tel-Aviv University, Israel. And a Visiting Professor at the University of Cambridge, the UK during the years 2005-2006, 2008, 2012. He was a visiting Professor at Princeton University, USA during the years 2019-2020. From 1994 to 1998 Asher Yahalom worked with Direx Medical System on the development of a novel MRI machine ahead of the magneto-static team. In the years 1998-1999 Asher Yahalom joined the Israeli Free Electron Laser Group both as a postdoctoral fellow and as a project manager, he is a member of the group ever since. Among his contributions to the project are theoretical contributions and technological contributions. As part of his duties, he established the FEL user center of which he now directs, the aim of the FEL user center is to establish applications for FEL radiation including medical applications. Currently, much of his efforts are directed toward the study of the implication of retardation phenomena in electromagnetics in relativistic engines and in gravity with emphasis on galactic systems.
