Bidoor AlSaif

Research Assistant III, CIPR

Great interest in laser light, particularly, CW lasers stabilization using optical frequency comb for precision spectroscopy and gas sensing application. Developing gas sensors in mid infrared (MIR) region with high sensitivity and precision has been achieved during the phd program. Moreover, have experience in semiconductor device microfabrication and cleanroom deposition and etching tools for semiconductor devices and corresponding thin-films characterization such as SEM, X-ray and AFM.
