Ofer Kedem


I'm an experimental physical chemist (though I dabble in simulation), primarily studying the interaction of electrons with light and electric fields in nanoscale structures and devices.

My PhD work focused on plasmonic nanoparticles, exploring their interaction with dielectric materials for plasmonic (bio)sensing (LSPR).

My current postdoctoral work involves the study of devices called "ratchets", which come from the fields of non-equilibrium thermodynamics and biological machines. Ratchets use a combination of asymmetry and energy input to create a dynamic steady-state, producing motion or transport. Biologically, they are the driving principle behind biological motors such as kinesin, actin or ATP synthase. Artificial implementations typically use oscillation, asymmetric electric fields to transport micro- or nano-particles, charged molecules, or electrons. I focus on the latter, seeking to use this fascinating transport principle in energy-relevant systems.
