Biography: Salam Nazhan received the BS and MS degrees in physics, and electronics physics from college of science of Al Mustansiriya University, Baghdad, Iraq, in 1998 and 2005 respectively, and the PhD degree in optoelectronics from Northumbria University, Newcastle, United Kingdom in 2016. He joined the optoelectronics research group as a researcher at Bangor University, Wales, UK in 2011- 2012 and Optical Communications Research Group at Faculty of Engineering and Environment, Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK until May 2016. His research focuses on optical and electrical characteristic of vertical-cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs) for free space optical communications. Main research interests with VCSELs devices for application of the free space optical communications system, optical polarization switching, relative intensity noise in optical devices, nonlinear dynamics and chaos synchronization under optical feedback, practical and theoretical investigation. He already published around 15 research papers including top journals in the field. He is a technical committee member of several international conferences. He is also attending and presents his research and work in a number of international conferences and events. He is currently Lecturer and the principal investigator of number of undergraduate students at power and electrical engineering department of college of engineering at University of Diyala, Iraq.
