Mohammed Abdul Majid

Postdoctoral Research Fellows
"Currently an Assistant Professor at the Effat University, Saudi Arabia"

Introduction

Mohammed Abdul Majid received the M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM), Dhahran, Saudi Arabia in 2002. In 2011, he was awarded his Ph.D. degree in Electronic and Electrical Engineering from the University of Sheffield in the U.K.

From 2002-2008, he was a Lecturer at KFUPM, where he was involved in modeling and simulation of anti-resonant reflecting optical waveguides. He was an EPSRC Prize Postdoctoral Fellow at The University of Sheffield for one year (2011-2012), where he was involved in the research on molecular beam epitaxy quantum dot materials on GaAs substrates for active switching applications.

He is currently in the CEMSE department at KAUST, where he is engaged in applying III/V semiconductor quantum dot/quantum well devices to applications such as biomedical imaging, optical communications to solid state lighting.
