Ph.D. Applied Physics    September 2017 

Department of Applied Science for Electronics and Materials

Interdisciplinary Graduate School of Engineering Sciences

Kyushu University, Japan

Thesis: “Application of nitrogen-doped ultrananocrystalline diamond/ hydrogenated amorphous carbon composite films to electronic devices”

Advisor: Prof. Tsuyoshi Yoshitake

Brief description:

During my Ph.D., I explored the influence of Nitrogen doping on the physical properties of ultrananocrystalline diamond/ hydrogenated amorphous carbon (UNCD/a-C:H) composite films. The UNCD/a-C:H films were prepared by a physical vapor deposition approach; namely; coaxial arc plasma deposition (CAPD) at the ambient of Nitrogen and Hydrogen mixed gases.

Research student         September 2013 - March 2014        

Department of Applied Science for Electronics and Materials,

Kyushu University, Japan

Major: Quantum Material Physics

I joined Kyushu University as a research student for 6 months to study the classes of quantum physics. In parallel, survey the proposed research topics of my Ph.D. thesis. 

Exchange Master student        September 2010 - July 2011    

Major: Nanophysics

Funded by the European unions and under the Erasmus Mundus scholarship for exchange programs, I joined the university of Graz for one academic year. I have been enrolled in the "Nanophysics master program" or "NAWI" project for nanophysics master program for one academic year as an exchange master student. NAWI program was a newly established collaboration master program enables master students to study the nanophysics classes and laboratories at Karl-Franzens-University of Graz (KF-Graz) and Graz University of Technology (TU Graz). During that year I learned basics of nanophysics, includes surface chemistry, nanomaterials, and others by joining classes and laboratories. Moreover i gained experience of operating experimental techniques in well equipped /high advanced laboratories, i could investigate various types of nanomaterials with SEM, TEM, XRD and others under the supervision of professors from KU & TU Graz.

M.Sc.  Solid State Physics      May 2012

Department of Physics, Faculty of Science, Aswan University, Aswan, Egypt

Major: Solid State Physics

Title of Thesis: “Studies on the physical properties of As-Se-Cu chalcogenide glasses”

Advisor: Prof. Fouad Abdel-Wahab (رحمه الله)

In my master studies at Aswan university, I researched the As-Se-Cu chalcogenide glasses  fabricated by quenching technique. As-Se-Cu thin films were deposited by thermal evaporation. The influence of Cu concentrations on the optical, electrical and structural properties of As-Se films were explored.  

Bachelor of Science, Physics  July 2006

Department of Physics, Faculty of Science, South Valley University, Aswan, Egypt 

I studeied my Bachelor of Science for four years, and graduated with very good grade.
