       Ph.D.: University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI, USA, 1995.

       M.Sc.: University of Wisconsin, Madison WI, USA, 1992.

       B.Sc.: Electrical engineering from Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA, USA, in 1988.

Research Interest:

  • Solid-State Electronics
  • Nano Electronics
  • Superconductivity
  • Sensors and actuators


After his Ph.D., Dr. Raissi joined K. N. Toosi university of technology, where he teaches research.  He is the co-founder and chairman of the board of directors of Y. N. Saleh Co., which manufactures industrial vacuum deposition systems. He has published two books, a Sci-Fi novel called “Faster than light” and a book called “God’s Grand Design” in response to S. Hawking’s book of “Grand Design.” Both books are published in Farsi. He won Khwarazmi scientific award for excellence in superconducting electronic research in 2014.
