Professor Adnen Mlayah is Professor of Physics at Paul Sabatier University of Toulouse (France) and a researcher at "Centre d'Elaboration de Matériaux et d'Etudes Structurales"-CNRS, working in the field of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. Main research interests are centred around optical properties of nanomaterials and nanostructures.
Prof. Adnen Mlayah has contributed to the research in condensed matter physics, particularly to the understanding of interactions between elementary excitations in solids such as phonons, excitons and plasmons. Adnen Mlayah's research interests are centered around the investigation and characterization of the electronic, optical and vibrational properties of nanomaterials using continuous wave (Raman, Rayleigh, photoluminescene, modulation reflectivity) and ultrafast (time resolved pump-probe) laser spectroscopy techniques. Adnen Mlayah has also developed models for the plasmon-phonon and electron-phonon coupling and related inelastic light scattering in doped semiconductors, in quantum wells and quantum dots, and in metallic nanoparticles.
