Dr. Abdelhak BelaidiPrincipal Investigator | Solar Energy
Abdelhak research activities focus on nanostructured solar cells. These activities include the preparation and characterization of new concepts of solar cells. At the present time his research focuses on understanding the properties of organic-inorganic perovskite systems with the aim of preparing high efficiency solar cells.
- B.Sc. in Physics. University of Constantine, Algeria, 1990
- M.S. in Physics. University of Constantine, Algeria. 1994

Before joining QEERI, Abdelhak was a program manager in the Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF). Prior that He spent 9 years in the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin working mainly on nanostructured, quantum dots and extremely thin absorber solar cells. He also worked on photocatalyis for waste water treatment during his postdoc in CNRS Bellevue, France.
