SHORT PROFESSIONAL BIOGRAPHY
Yosef Pinhasi is a
Professor in the Faculty of Engineering at Ariel
University. He was born in
Since 1990 he is working in the field of electromagnetic radiation, investigating mechanisms of its excitation and generation in high power radiation sources like microwave and millimeter wave electron devices, free-electron lasers (FELs) and masers. He developed a unified coupled-mode theory of electromagnetic field excitation and propagation in the frequency domain, enabling study of wideband interactions of electromagnetic waves in media in the linear and non-linear (saturation) operation regimes.
Prof. Pinhasi investigates utilization of electromagnetic waves in a wide range of frequencies for various applications such as communications, remote sensing and imaging. His space-frequency approach is employed to study propagation of wide-band signals in absorptive and dispersive media in broadband communication links, and wireless indoor and outdoor networks, as well as in remote sensing radars operating in the millimeter and Tera-Hertz wavelengths.
Prof. Yosef Pinhasi is the head of many research projects granted by the Israeli Science foundation, Ministry of Infrastructure, Ministry of Industry and Commerce and Ministry of Defense. He published papers and articles in scientific journals, presented his work in national and international conferences and meetings and carries consultation works in communications to the industry and governmental ministries. In 2007, the book "Foundations of modern communications" and in 2008 the book "Digital communications and modems", written by him were published. Prof. Pinhasi serves as the chairman of the Communication Technology and Smart Houses Chapter, the Society of Electrical and Electronic Engineers in Israel.
