Feras obtained his MEng Degree from University College London in Electronics and Electrical Engineering in 2010. He is now a PhD student in Prof. Dan Hewak's Novel Glass group in the Optoelectronics Research Centre as well as a student in Prof. Brian Hayden's Surface Science Group in the Chemistry Department. During his Undergraduate degree Feras completed projects in Liquid crystal modelling and modelling of Silicon Nano cluster Erbium emission enhancement. His current work is focused on chalcogenides for solar applications, working on the High-throughput synthesis and screening of the sulphide photovoltaic materials, the characterisation of CVD and sputtered materials and the fabrication of graphene based chalcogenide photovoltaics.
Current research interests:
Combinatorial Synthesis, Thin films, High-Throughput Materials, Photovoltaics, Chalcogenides, CVD, sputtering and graphene.
Current research projects involved in:
- Nanostructured Switchable Photonic Metamaterials
- Phase change chalcogenides for information storage and processing
