Dr Abdelkrim El Amili

Silicon Photonics

University of California, San Diego

Dr Abdelkrim El Amili is a physicist specializing in optics and laser physics. He received his BSc in Physics and Engineering from the Université Bordeaux I, France, in 2004, and his MSc in Physics from the same university in 2006. He then started a PhD in cold atom physics at the Laboratoire Charles Fabry de l'Institut d'Optique Graduate School, France, in the group directed by Professor Alain Aspect. His thesis work was on the realization of an experimental setup for atom detection onto atom-chip, and on the theoretical investigation of detection performances of coupled micro-cavities. He received his PhD in Physics from Université Paris-Sud 11, France, in 2010.

From 2010 to 2011 Abdelkrim worked as postdoctoral researcher in laser physics at the Laboratoire Aimé Cotton in Paris. He experimentally and theoretically investigated the noise properties of single-/dual-frequency Vertical External Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers. From 2011 to 2014 he worked as a non-permanent researcher at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) at the Institut de Physique de Rennes 1, France. His research was on the experimental and theoretical study of the dynamics of solid-state lasers.  Since 2015, he has been at the University of California at San Diego, USA, to start new projects on coupled-nanolasers, laser dynamics in nanolaser systems, ultra-compact sensors as well as integrated RF photonics using silicon photonics technology.
