Soon after his graduation, Abdelghani received the Marie Curie Grant from the European Research Training Network to carry a postdoctoral position at the University of Kaiserslautern (Germany) in the group of Prof. Burkard Hillebrands. He used Brillouin Light Scattering Microscopy to study the spin current induced spin-wave emission in ferromagnetic nanostructures for spintronics applications. Abdelghani spent two-months visits at Imperial College of London in the group of Prof. Russell Cowburn for magneto-optical characterization of spin current induced domain wall motion in ferromagnetic nanowires, and at University of Paris-Sud in the group of Dr. Jacques Miltat for modeling current distribution and Oersted field in spin-torque nano-oscillators.
In April 2009, Abdelghani joined the group of Prof. Carlos Meriles at CUNY-City College of New York to work on a methodology to use the spin of nitrogen vacancy center in diamond as a probe for high-resolution magnetic and temperature sensing. He worked on different research projects including: Development a novel approach for imaging thermal conductivity and temperature at the nanometer scale using diamond nanocrystal – contained Nitrogen Vacancy Centers (NVC) - attached to a thermal AFM tip, introducing novel methods for hyperpolarizing nuclear spins at arbitrary magnetic fields, and implementing NVC-assisted magnetometry of paramagnetic centers in diamond nanocrystals. He collaborated with researchers from MIT, Columbia University, Georgia Institute of Technology, and University of Stuttgart.
