Ahmed E. Mansour has successfully defended his Ph.D. dissertation titled "Versatile and Tunable Transparent Conducting Electrodes Based on Doped Graphene" at KAUST. The defense started with a 50 minutes presentation in front of a general audience, demonstrating the key outcome and achievements of his Ph.D. work relating to the chemical doping of few-layer graphene using both intercalation doping and surface doping and their combination, and their mutual combination towards enhancing the optoelectronic properties of graphene towards applications as transparent conductive electrodes.
A closed examination session followed, where the questions and comments of the committee members were addressed. The examination committee included: Prof. Aram Amassian of KAUST (committee chair), Prof. Husam Alshareef of KAUST (committee member), Prof. Iain Mcculloch of KAUST and director of the KAUST solar center (committee member) and Prof. Paolo Samori of University of Strasbourg (external committee member). Ahmed E. Mansour has successfully passed the defense fulfilling the requirements of his Ph.D. degree from KAUST.
