Dr. Ahmad N. AL-Omari received his B.S. degree in Electronics Engineering from Yarmouk University, Irbid, Jordan in 1995 and completed both his M.S. and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colorado, in 2002 and 2006 respectively. From 1995 to 2000 he was a Lab Engineer at the Dept. of Electronics Engineering, Yarmouk University. During his graduate studies at Colorado State University he was a graduate research assistant from 9/2000 to 6/2005 and a Semiconductor Processing Cleanlab manager and a postdoctoral fellow at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Dept., Colorado State University from 7/2005 to 8/2006. From 11/2006 to 2/2012 he was an Assistant professor at the Dept. of Electronics Engineering/Yarmouk University.
Currently, he is an Associate Professor at the Electronics Engineering Dept. at Yarmouk University, where he served as a Dept. Chairman from 2010 to 2014. His research is focused on design, fabrication, characterization and modeling of high speed oxide confined vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs), dielectrics for high speed devices as well as optical biomedical sensors and piezoelectric thin films.
Since Sept. 2015, Dr. Al-Omari is on a sabbatical leave as a Founder and Chairman of the Engineering Technology Programs (Associate of Science in Engineering Technology, Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering Technology, Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technolog) at the Community College of Qatar, Doha, State of Qatar.
