Research interests

Dr. Saleh’s research is interested in conducting analytical and theoretical investigation of nonlinear interactions between light and matter in microstructures.  His aim is to understand and exploit these kinds of interactions in cutting-edge microstructures to offer potential ideas that can lead to compact novel photonic devices for various applications. He has establised the MNO group in Heriot-Watt to achieve that aim 



Mohammed F. Saleh has been the Royal Society of Edinburgh/ Scottish Government Research Fellow at Heriot-Watt University (2014-2019). He was a postdoctoral researcher at Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light in Germany (2010-2014).
