Developing nanoscale intelligent materials for ultrafast photonic applications
Dr. Ibrahim Abdelwahab is an Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow in the Faculty of Physics of the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (LMU). He holds a joint PhD/DIC in physics and chemistry from both Imperial College London and the National University of Singapore, a master’s of nanoscience from Lund University, and a bachelor’s in applied chemistry from Helwan University. His current work represents a new paradigm for ultrathin, efficient nonlinear optical components with a vast number of applications, such as optical modulation, optical switching, bioimaging, frequency conversion, and all-optical signal processing. It achieves this while being cost-effective and easy to interface with typical photon conduits, facilitating large-scale production.
