        Prof. YOSSI PALTIEL

                 Applied Physics Department

        The Hebrew University, Jerusalem Israel

        Professor Yossi Paltiel has worked for both leading high-tech industry groups and in the academic world. Since July 2009, He is the leading the Quantum Nano Engineering group at the Hebrew University, Israel. Currently, he is the chair of the Hebrew University Applied Physics Department. Paltiel's group’s goal is to establish a way to incorporate quantum mechanics into room temperature "classical" computation and reading schemes. This will provide quantum coherence control at nanometer scale distances, while maintaining the physical characteristics of currently available computer input-output devices. Professor Paltiel has published more than 80 papers in leading journals as well as issued 10 patents. Since 2013 professor Paltiel has a startup company named Valentis nanotech
