Caught Between Spins and Light

Scientists at the PhysLab are busy untangling the mysteries of the quantum world. By isolating single photons, they attempt to understand how light behaves when influenced by magnetic fields. 

This show of magneto-optical properties is carefully observed by a team of researchers, including Dr. Ali Akbar, whose own PhD runs roots in the PhysLab, along with Ms Wardah Mahmood, a PhD student working to create materials that showcase magneto-optical phenomena. The PhysLab is a project lead by Dr. Sabieh Anwar, Professor of Physics, Ahmad Dawood Chair and Dean at the Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering.
