Farida A. Selim
I use positron annihilation spectroscopy, perturbed angular correlation and other advanced spectroscopy techniques to study condensed matter systems. Current research activities include study of diluted magnetic semiconductors for spintronics, study of exciton dynamics in photonic materials and study of wide band-gap semiconductors for optoelectronics. Other research interests include physics of antimatter interactions and in flight positron-electron annihilation.
