Brief Biography

Nasr A. M. Hafz (Hafiz) is an experimental physicist who received his B.Sc. in Physics from Ain Shams University in Cairo, EGYPT in 1991. From 1993 to 1998. He was a Junior faculty member in Plasma Physics by Egypt’s Atomic Energy Authority. He moved to Tokyo, JAPAN in 1998 and was awarded a Ph.D. of Engineering “Quantum Engineering and Systems Science” from the University of Tokyo in 2001. From 2011 to 2018 he was a tenure-track Associate Professor at the Department of Physics and Astronomy of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China.

Since Sept. 2018 he is a Leading Scientist and the Particle Acceleration Group Leader at ELI-ALPS, HUNGARY, EU. His group’s main task at ELI-ALPS within the new few years is to establish two high-repetition-rate (10 Hz and 1 kHz) laser accelerator beamlines based on ELI unique laser systems for applications in science and technology.

Nasr’s research is focusing on electron acceleration using TW/PW lasers and plasmas and the generation of secondary radiations and particles. He has supervised/co-supervised 12 Ph.D. students over the past few years. He has authored and co-authored 73 peer-reviewed articles some of which appeared in “Nature Photonics, PNAS, Science Advances, Scientific Reports." He also has more than 80 invited and oral talks, lectures, and conference proceedings. Nasr’s H-index is 20 with more than 1500 citations.
