   Adi Salomon obtained her B.Sc. in Chemistry from Tel Aviv University and received her PhD from the department of Materials and Interfaces at Weizmann Institute of Science with David Cahen. There she got a scientific background on surface chemistry, semiconductors and electron transport through organic molecules. Then she went to ISIS, Strasbourg,   working with Thomas Ebbesen on Interaction between molecules and surface plasmons.  Her research was the first to demonstrate the dynamics of interaction between surface plasmons and molecules throughout the development of a new surface photochemistry. Later on, at the WIS, together with Yehiam Prior, Tamar Seideman, Robert Gordon and Maxim Shukharev, they have developed a new model to explain interactions between molecules which are immersed in the ‘plasmonic field’.   She is currently working with Yehiam Prior (WIS) and Joseph Zyss (ENS-Cachan) on coherent coupling between plasmonic modes of metallic nanocavities in order to achieve strong field amplification at the nanoscale.
