The Photonics Group is located within the Electrical Engineering Department at Alexandria University in Egypt. The group has approximately 20 members, including academic staff, researchers, graduate students and undergraduate students. Our objective is to explore lightwave communication technologies and systems, and to identify novel applications and practical limitations. Our research covers a wide area of photonics including optical transport and access networks, visible light communications and free-space optics, advanced DSP for optical communications, hybrid modulation and multiple-access techniques, MAC layer protocols, and more recently silicon photonics and integration. We have collaborations with other researchers across Egypt and worldwide.


  • Eng. Abdallah S. Ghazy successfully defended his M.Sc. thesis entitled "Fair Resource Allocation and Placement Schemes in Cooperative Dynamic Free Space Optical Networks," September 2016

  • Eng. Abdulaziz E. Elfiqi successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis entitled "Performance Evaluation of Next Generation Optical Communication Networks," September 2016

  • Eng. Haitham S. Khallaf successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis entitled "Advanced Modulation Techniques for Free Space Optical Communication Systems," September 2016

  • Eng. Bassam A. Aly successfully defended his M.Sc. thesis entitled "Performance Improvement Techniques for Mobile Indoor Visible Light Communications," August 2016


We are always looking for enthusiastic graduate and post-graduate students. Please contact us to send your resume and research interests. 

We are also interested in hearing from bright people who are passionate about photonics. If you want to learn more about what we do, please contact us.
