Biography Sketch

Prof. El-Sayed received his B.Sc. from Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt, and his Ph.D. from Florida State University working with Michael Kasha. After being a research associate at Harvard, Yale, and the California Institute of Technology, in 1961 he was appointed to the faculty of the University of California, Los Angeles. In 1994 he became the Julius Brown Chair, Regents' Professor and Director of the Laser Dynamics Laboratory, School of Chem-istry and Biochemistry, Georgia Institute of Technology.

Among many awards, Prof. El-Sayed received the Langmuir Award of the American Chemical Society, the Doctor Homoris Causa from the Hebrew University, the King Iaisal International Award in Science and the UCLA Distinguished Teaching Award, as well as a UCLA Research Award. He is an elected member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, the Third World Academy of Sciences, an elected Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Physical Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Since 1980 he has been the Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Physical Chemistry A and B.

El-Sayed and his group have published over 450 papers and the research was carried out by over 60 graduate students and over 45 post-doctoral fellows. Using different laser spectroscopic techniques, they pursued research aimed at elucidating the molecular mechanisms involved in dynamical processes and energy conversion in molecules, in gaseous clusters, in organic and inorganic solids as well as in photobiological systems, such as bacteriorhodopsin. More recently, his group began active research on the ultrafast electron and hole dynamics in semiconductor nanoparticles and the shape dependent physical (optical and nonradiative) properties and the chemical (selective nanocatalysis) properties of transition metal nanoparticles.
