Prof. Mahjouri-Samani is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) at Auburn University (AU). He received his BS (2008) and Ph.D. (2013) degrees in Electrical & Computer Engineering both from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Before joining AU, he spent 4 years as a postdoctoral research associate in the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences (CNMS) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). His research interest is focused on the laser-based synthesis, laser processing, and in-situ laser diagnostics of emerging materials and devices.


Low-Dimensional Materials Synthesis, Laser Materials Synthesis, Laser Materials Processing, In situ Laser Characterizations – 2D Materials and Devices.

Lasers are playing a vital role in transforming various aspects of engineering, science, and technology spanning from additive manufacturing and flexible electronics to ultrafast charge dynamics and quantum sciences. The spatial and temporal tunability, controlled energy and power densities, adjustable bandwidth, and polarization of lasers enable a broad spectrum of applications that is not accessible by other means.

Our team, Laser-Assisted Science and Engineering (LASE) lab, is establishing a state-of-the-art laser facility with the goal of becoming a laser hub for the Auburn University, State of Alabama, and beyond. We now have lasers with various time, energy, and spectral ranges enabling us to perform high precision laser materials synthesis, laser processing, and laser diagnostics.

Research Interests

  • Spatial, temporal, spectral, and energy-resolved laser-based processing of nanomaterials and devices.
  • Advanced laser-based techniques for additive nanomanufacturing, surface texturing, micro/nanoscale patterning, and direct writing.
  • Synthesis and processing of advanced functional materials including 2D materials and heterostructures.
  • In-situ optical imaging and spectroscopy techniques for studying the fundamental growth mechanisms and properties of low-dimensional materials and hybrid structures.
  • Multiscale functionalities of nanomaterials and architectures for nanoelectronics, optoelectronics, photonics, and sensing applications
