Dr. Yahya Meziani is currently working as associate professor at the department of applied physics, Salamanca University. From 2006 till 2008, he was assistant professor with the Research Institute of Electrical Communication (RIEC), Tohoku University, Japan. From March 2005 till Feb. 2006, he was a JSPS (Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science) research fellow at RIEC, Tohoku University, Japan. From July 2001 till March 2005 he was working as a research scientist at Groupe d’Etude des Semiconducteurs (GES), Montpellier 2 University, France. He received his M.S. and PhD degrees in Semiconductor Physics from Montpellier 2 University, France, in 1997 and 2001 respectively.
Dr. Meziani has been conducting research on Quantum Hall effect phenomenon and its application for the conservation of the Ohm unit. He developed with STMicroelectronics a new method for characterization of the new generation of sub-micron silicon transistors. He was also involved in the development of new electronic devices that can emit and/or detect terahertz radiation at room temperature. He has been supervising about ten M.S. students at both Tohoku University and Montpellier 2 University. He is author and co-author of more than 25 scientific publications. He is member of IEICE-Japan and society of physics-France.
