During this time he served 9 years in the IAF as a Scientific Officer and also as a CTO in a medical device company, developing miniature intravascular MRI. Following his PhD he spent 3 years at Cornell University as a Post Doc at the group of Prof. Jack Freed (on a Rothschild post-doctoral fellowship ), developing the subject of ESR microscopy, and since 2005 he is a Faculty member at the Technion. Aharon main interests today are development and applications of new methodologies in the field of magnetic resonance. His group works on miniature sensitive ESR resonators; small, self contained NMR and ESR medical tools; and ESR probes for micro and nano imaging. He is the author of more than 50 papers and 6 patents and received the E.D Bergmann Memorial, Award (Awarded by the United States – Israel Binational Foundation); the Yigal Alon Fellowship (Award by the Council for Higher Education in Israel); and was selected among the first 200 grantees of the first ERC (European Research Council) starting research grant for young investigators (in all fields of natural and social sciences).
