What is Pi Day and why do we celebrate it?

It is a day to celebrate the mathematical constant pi (π) and to eat lots of pie. Pi Day celebrates the mathematical constant π (3.14). It is celebrated because the digits in the date, March 14 or 3/14, are the first three digits of π (3.14)

Professor Yoav Shechtman is Head of Technion’s Nano Bio-Optics Laboratory which has 15 members, researchers and students, at the Technion where he graduated with a BSc and his PhD. He undertook Post-Doctoral research at Stanford University. His research interests include:

  • Optical super-resolution microscopy – experimental methods and algorithms
  • Multi-color and three-dimensional nano-tracking
  • Optical design and analysis through machine learning
  • Fluorescence microscopy

Dr Onit Alalouf, is the Laboratory Manager and Research Associate in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Technion.
