Dr. Arnel A. Salvador

Let’s get to know more about the members of the National Academy of Science and Technology, Philippines (NAST PHL).

Dr. Arnel A. Salvador is recognized for his significant contributions and pioneering work in experimental condensed matter and applied solid-state physics, specifically in the fabrication of optoelectronic devices using Groups III-V semiconductors that are grown via molecular beam epitaxy techniques, which can be applied in semiconductor lasers and photodetectors for optical communication, terahertz emitter and detectors for spectroscopic identification of chemicals and imaging.

Dr. Salvador is currently a professor at the National Institute of Physics, University of the Philippines-Diliman, and served as director of the institution for six years. He established an advanced and globally competitive academe-based semiconductor research laboratory dedicated to training and mentoring highly-skilled and competent undergraduate and graduate scientists. He also set up international collaborations that allowed his students to also work in research laboratories abroad – a testament to his resolve to improve the level of S&T in the Philippines.

Dr. Salvador obtained his Bachelor of Science in Physics (cum laude) from the University of the Philippines Diliman in 1983 and a Doctor of Philosophy in Physics from the University of Illinois in Urbana- Champaign in 1994. He was elected to the Academy in 2018.
