Brahim Aïssa


Dr. Brahim Aïssa received the B.Sc. and M. Sc. degrees in electrical engineering in 1998 and 2002, respectively, and a Ph.D. degree in materials and Energy science from the "University of Quebec, Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique; Centre Energy, Materials and Telecommunications", Canada, in 2010. He has worked for MPB Technologies Inc. at the department of Smart Materials and Sensors for Space missions from 2009 to 2014.

Research Interest

His research interests include nanoscale materials and their applications in energy science. In particular, my work focuses on studying the electronic and optoelectronic properties of nanostructured materials, to design/synthesis novel structures with a controlled composition, morphology and dimension for PV applications. An emphasis is placed on the carbon nanostructured materials based hybrid organic solar cells and transparent and conducting electrodes.
