Walid Tawfik Younes Mohamed is a Full Professor, Department of Laser Applications in Metrology, Photochemistry and Agriculture (LAMPA), NILES, Cairo University.He obtained his Ph.d from Cairo University, Egypt (the experiment part and data collection doneat TU, Munich,Germany), Thesis titled 'Study of photonmolecular interaction dynamics using short laser pulses 'ZEKE Spectroscopy'. His research plans are devoted to optics and photonics: linear and nonlinear interactionsof laser light and matter using time-resolved spectroscopy for laser-pulse durations fromnanosecond to few-cycle. The studies include the application of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) used in the field of analytical spectroscopy and plasma characterization, in addition to ultrafast nonlinear phenomena due to propagation ofultrafast pulses in nonlinear medium and how the interactions can be exploited forimproved material characterization. The prospective plans aim to reach attosecondstreaking to study transient absorption spectroscopy of ultrafast electron motion.He also published many books and articles across national and international journals.
