Deputy Research Director, CNRS
Head of Energy hub, CNRS
Abdelilah SLAOUI is presently Deputy Research Director in charge of Energy at the National
Scientific Research Centre, CNRS-HQ, in Paris.
He received his PhD in 1984 on laser crystallisation of implanted silicon at Laboratoire PHASE
(CNRS) for optolecetronic devices. Thereafter, he continued his work on gas immersion laser
doping and oxidation of silicon, laser-induced ablation of materials and laser-induced
crystallisation of a-Si and a-SiGe. In 1989, he developed the activity based on lamp furnace
heating for processing of solar cells and transistors. In 1992, he joined the Oregon Graduate
Institute at Beaverton, Oregon, USA as a visiting scientist. His research interests include
MOSFET and TFT’s transistors as well as inorganic materials based solar cells. He served for
20 years as head of the photovoltaic group at PHASE, INESS and ICUBE institutes (CNRS
labs). He participated/coordinated about 15 National, 10 European and 6 International projects
on Energy in general and on photovoltaics in particular. He served as president of the European
Material Research Society. He chaired 6 international conferences and co-organized more than
12 international symposia dealing with materials for energy. He has authored or co-authored
more than 260 papers and 10 chapters in specialized books.
Since 2017, he has been appointed as a deputy research director in charge of Energy at CNRS,
meaning managing all research activities on energy carried out in CNRS’ labs over France.
Since 2021, he is also coordinating the National Research Program on decarbonated hydrogen
