  • Advances in semiconductor technology has made possible the fabrication of photonic structures and solid state emitters which exhibit quantum nature of light and matter. This has initiated the highly topical field of quantum technologies which deals with utilizing quantum mechanical effects for practical applications. Dr Ata Ulhaq's gr...
  • The theory of Quantum Mechanics has led to major technological developments in the science industry, and may yet lead to many more novel advancements in the field as well. However, before doing so, it is essential to understand the dynamics of realistic open quantum systems, i.e. systems that interact uncontrollably with the surroundi...
  • Surface plasmon-polariton (SPP) waves are guided by an interface of a metal and a dielectric material. Due to the localisation of SPP waves to the interface, they are important in solar cells, chemical sensors, and plasmonic communication. Dr. Faryad has extensive experience in the study of SPP waves that are guided by interfaces of m...
  • In Dr. Sabieh Anwar’s multi-disciplinary research group, the aim is to explore the fundamental properties of materials, especially at the nanoscale, and their interaction with external radiation such as light or electromagnetic radiation. Some aspects of this research also bear societal implications. For example, the group is developi...
  • Our interdisciplinary research group on functional nanomaterials is developing novel strategies to synthesize size and shape-controlled metal, metal oxide and semiconductor nanoparticles/nanoclusters based on chemical and biological principles. In order to control their surface chemistry, we are also working, in collaboration with nat...
  • Research Interests: Design and synthesis of functional polymers, tuning macro and nano scale materials properties by employing controlled surface initiated radical polymerisation techniques, fabrication of functional ceramic and polymeric nanoporous hybrid membranes for various applications like fuel cells, bio-sensing, scaffolds for...
  • The research interests of our group are at the interface of organometallic chemistry and organic synthetic methodology. The main focus area of our research is the development of novel green synthetic methodologies, utilizing transition metal catalysis, for the functionalization of aromatic hydrocarbons. Our newly developed catalytic r...
  • Epigenetic mechanisms such as DNA methylation and histone modification influence gene expression either positively or negatively without introducing any changes in the DNA sequence and therefore play a pivotal role in determining the fates of different cells during development. A fertilised egg undergoes multiple divisions and di...
  • Hepatitis-C viral (HCV) infections reduce the quality of life for over 170 million people worldwide. Although HCV was discovered about 21 years ago, the available treatment options for infected individuals are limited. Despite much effort, development of vaccines and drugs against HCV has been hampered due to rapid evolution of the vi...
