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, processing, and in-situ diagnostics of emerging low-dimensional materials and devices.


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

In the multidisciplinary field of nanomaterials science and engineering, the primary aims of discovering novel nanomaterials, understanding growth mechanisms, identifying properties, and exploring functionalities are broad research thrusts that enable fundamental insights and innovations in future electronics, photonics, energy technologies, and biomedical sciences. My current and prospective research interest is focused on innovating new materials and developing the fundamental sciences needed to translate the extraordinary properties of low-dimensional materials and their hybrid structures into real-world applications.

My research emphasis is focused on developing new laser-based synthesis, processing, and in-situ spectroscopy methods to accelerate the discovery of nanomaterials with enhanced properties and enable their use in nanoelectronics, optoelectronics, photonics, and sensing, as well as biological and energy applications.

Research Interests

  • 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.
  • 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.
