Prof. Amos Breskin
Prof. Amos Breskin develops advanced radiation detectors, which have an important impact on many fields of research, such as particle, nuclear and atomic physics, medical diagnostics, biology and materials science.


Together with colleagues at Weizmann and elsewhere, Breskin developed a minimally invasive electronic “finger” for the detection and diagnosis of prostate cancer. The technology is being tested in collaboration with urologists from the Kaplan Medical Center.
