Dr. Maher S. Amer is Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, Wright State University, USA, and an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow at the Max Planck Institute, Germany. Dr. Amer also served as a visiting fellow, Department of Metallurgy and Materials, University of Cambridge He received a Ph.D. in Materials Engineering from Drexel University in 1995.  Dr. Amer’s research is focused around transitions in mesoscopic and nanoscopic systems as well as processing and characterization of Nanostructured ultra-thin films and membranes.  Prof. Amer is a U.S. Fulbright Core Scholar. 


The unique and superior opto-electric properties of graphene have attracted much attention for its importance in many opto-electric applications.  This, however, necessitates an answer to the question that at which number of... [ view full abstract ]
