Abdel El Fatimy received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in physics from Montpellier University, France, in 2002 and 2004, respectively, and he received his Ph.D. degree in condensed matter physics from Montpellier University, France in 2007. Before joining the CEITEC, Brno University, and the Centrale School of Casablanca. He conducted research at Georgetown University, Washington, USA (2013-2017), and worked for CNRS at Montpellier University (2012-2014) and Bordeaux University (2007 - 2008). He worked at Cardiff University, United Kingdom, for three years (2009-2012). He has been a research fellow at the Research Institute of Electrical Communication. Tohoku University, Japan (2008-2009). Throughout his career, he had been interested in studying the physical properties of nanoscale materials and THz based devices. 

Current Research

My current research focuses on the physics and applications of low dimensional materials, including GaN/AlGaN, GaAs/AlGaAs 2DEG. I am interested in quantum transport in reduced dimensions, as well as novel nanoscale devices, ranging from sources of Terahertz radiation, plasmonic devices to graphene-based THz detectors.
