Hamad Abdulaziz Hamad Albrithen


I finished my Bachelor Degree from King Saud University, then I was provided a scholarship to study at Ohio University in the field of Surface Physics and Condensed Matter. After completing my PhD I was hired as an assistant professor at King Saud University, Department of Physics-College of Science. I have been teaching several courses, introductory Physics, advanced Physics, Master courses and PhD courses. I also supervised students, both undergraduate and master levels. Recently, I have been working at King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology as a full time research investigator. My work resulted in more than 30 publications Published and Submitted in Journals and tens of conferences participations. My main focus is on mainly compound semiconductors: such as III-V, II-Oxide, and III-Nitride; magnetic materials, solar cells, and recently sensing.
