The Department of Chemical Physics at the Weizmann Institute (Israel) is researching quantum optics, and the laser's interaction with matter – both theoretically and experimentally.

The Institute's Maurice and Gabriella Goldschleger Center for Nanophysics, established in 2001, was fueled by the success of the research on Mesoscopic Physics, and continues research into nanophysics.

The research in the Department of Chemical Physics covers a wide range of interdisciplinary subjects, combining the fields of chemistry, physics and biophysics. Light-matter interactions (quantum optics) and their applications for quantum information are being investigated theoretically by Gershon Kurizki in periodic structures, cavities, cold atom gases and condensates.

The Maurice and Gabriella Goldschleger Center for Nanophysics funds student and postdoc fellowships, and by supports physics students who travel to workshops and schools in this field. An important priority of the center is enhancing the collaboration between nano-physicists at WIS and their peers abroad. The center provides funds for visitors and for organizing workshops in this field.
