James MacLaren Early Career Professor in Physics, Department of Physics and Engineering Physics, Tulane University
Prof. Bondar conducts theoretical and computational research at the boundary of quantum technology and ultrafast nonlinear optics. Of particular interest is the exploration how quantum control can be used to produce on-demand nonlinear optical properties, and how tailored nonlinear optical effects can enhance information processing tasks. The research of the Bondar group was recently featured in Quantamagazine, Nature Materials, Physics, PhysicsWorld, US Army, Finding Genius Podcast, Tulane News etc.
Prof. Bondar joined the Department of Physics and Engineering Physics, Tulane University in 2018. Previously, he had been an Associate Research Scholar and Lecturer at Princeton University since 2014. He was promoted from a postdoctoral appointment at the Department of Chemistry, Princeton University. He earned his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Waterloo, Canada in 2011 and M.Sc. with Honors from Uzhhorod National University, Ukraine in 2006.
