# Prof. Arlene Wilson-Gordon

## CV

I studied for a BSc (Hons) in Chemistry at Glasgow University (1964-68) and a DPhil in Theoretical Chemistry at Oxford University (1968-71). I was then a Royal Society- Israel Academy postdoctoral fellow in Theoretical Chemistry at the Hebrew University (1971-73). I joined the Chemistry Department at Bar-Ilan University in 1973 as a Lecturer and eventually became a Full Professor in 2000 and Professor Emerita in 2015. I spent sabbaticals at the Weizmann Institute and Imperial College London. My research interests are in the field of the interaction of light with matter, in particular nonlinear and quantum optics. Both analytical and computational techniques are used in my research with a strong emphasis on the relation to experiment. Recent topics of study include electromagnetically induced absorption and transparency, slow and stored light, biphoton production in solid-state systems such as ruby or NV-diamond, transients in absorption in atomic rubidium, nonlinear magneto-optical rotation, optical clocks and magnetometry, spin squeezing, and propagation of light beams in absorbing systems.
