Professor Abdelkrim Khelif
FEMTO-ST / CNRS, Université de Bourgogne-France-Comté, Besancon, France
Abdelkrim Khelif graduated in 1993 with MSc in fundamental physics from university of Lille, France. In 1998, he completed a PhD in Material sciences from the same university, devoted to the study of scattering and phonons vibrations in nanostructure materials. He joined the FEMTO-ST Institute in 2002 as full-time research position at Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) to develop phononic crystals and acoustic metamaterials. He has extensive experience in design, optimization, and simulation of phononic structures. He contributes a lot in the experimental demonstration of ultrasonic phononic crystal band gap, cavities mode and waveguide at low frequency. He is also active to extract the potential application of phononic crystal as a new acoustic device for signal processing, and sensing applications. Due to his achievements in the field of phononic crystal, he has been involved as the symposium session chair, technical committee member, and invited speaker in several conferences in the last 5 years. He is also a frequent reviewer in this field for multiple physics and acoustic journals (Physical Review Letter, B, E, applied Physics Letters, Journal of applied physcs, and so on). He has more than 80 journal papers and several invited, and contributed conference and seminar presentations. He also has 4 patents in phononic crystal and the recipient of Bronze medal awards from CNRS for his work in phononic crystal in 2007.
