Mordecai David Rosen

Dr. Mordecai David Rosen grew up in Brooklyn, NY. He earned a B.Sc. in physics and math from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (1972), and a Ph.D. in Plasma Physics from Princeton University (1976). He has since been employed at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Northern California, where he studies fusion reactions created there, at the National Ignition Facility, the world’s largest laser. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, winner of the Teller Medal of the American Nuclear Society, and patent co-holder of the first laboratory-created x-ray laser. He and his wife, Rena (whom he met in kindergarten at the Yeshivah of Flatbush), have raised 3 children (and 11 grandchildren), some of whom still live close to them in Berkeley, CA, and attend Congregation Beth Israel there.
