Prof. Oren Cohen

Congratulations to Prof. Oren Cohen for receiving The Henry Taub Prize for Academic Excellence. Oren received the prize for breakthroughs in extreme nonlinear optics, including the discovery that conservation of spin angular momentum plays a very important role in non-perturbative nonlinear optics, the first experimental demonstration of high-order harmonics with fully tunable polarization and the discovery of long-lived atmospheric optical waveguides in the wake of laser filaments.
