Salah A. Makhlouf

Assiut University, Egypt


Salah A. Makhlouf works as a Professor of experimental solid state physics (nanoscience) at the Physics Department, Assiut University, Egypt. He obtained his B.S. degree (physics) in 1982 and an M.S. degree (physics) in 1988 from Assiut University; then he gained the certificate of the international course for graduate research students (ICGRS) from Kyoto University, Japan, in 1991. Makhlouf received his Ph.D. degree in materials science from Tohoku University in 1994. He has been appointed as a Visiting Researcher at the Center for Magnetic Recording Research (CMRR) at the University of California, San Diego (1995–1997). Makhlouf has been working at the United Arab Emirates University (1999–2005). He authored and coauthored fifty papers, and his name has more than one thousand citations and h-index = 14. In addition, he has a profound experience in teaching physics and materials science with constant positive feedback for both undergraduate and graduate students in UAE and Assiut Universities. Professor Makhlouf led numerous department committees to develop the undergraduate and graduate curricula at Assiut University. Most of his work is in the field of nanomaterial, particularly (i) magnetic nanoparticles, (ii) structural, electrical, humidity, and gas sensing properties of nanocomposite materials, (iii) structural and magnetic properties of granular materials, (iv) mechanically and/or mechanochemically produced nanoscale particles, and (v) biological magnetic nanomaterials.
