Research Director @ CNRS - Head of the MaCEPV
Laboratoire ICUBE (University of Strasbourg-CNRS) - MaCEPV - Materials for Electronic & Photovoltaic devices
Dr Abdelilah SLAOUI received his PhD degree in semiconductor physics in 1984 at Laboratory PHASE/France, where he focused on laser crystallisation of implanted silicon for solar cells. He joined CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) in 1986 as a permanent researcher to work on laser processing for photovoltaics and microelectronic devices. In 1992 he joined the Oregon Graduate Institute at Beaverton, Oregon, USA as a visiting scientist. He presently has a position of Research Director at ICUBE laboratory and he is the head of the department of Materials for electronic and photovoltaics devices (MaCEPV). His team is dealing with silicon and organic based solar cells, as well as on synthesis and characterizations of nanomaterials. Among others, he served as President of European Materials Research Society (E-MRS) in 2007-2009.
A. Slaoui participated and initiated numerous National as well as to European projects. He has authored or co-authored more than 220 papers in Journals and Proceedings and contributed to books, and edited special issues and proceedings. He co-organized symposia on materials for photovoltaic and Energy in general. He is presently coordinating EUROSUNMED, an European project on the development of renewable energies in European and South Mediteranean Countries.
