Materials Chemistry Laboratory
Dr. Maqsood Ahmed (Principal Investigator)
Dr. Maqsood Ahmed got his PhD entitled “Ultra high resolution crystallography of small molecules and proteins” from Universite de Lorraine, Nancy, France in 2012. He served in GC University Lahore for one year before joining IUB in September, 2013. CV
Dr. Sajida Noureen (Co-Principal Investigator)
Dr. Sajida Noureen became Lecturer in Chemistry in 2005 at University of Sargodha and then moved to IUB in 2007. She was selected for PhD studies under the Faculty Development Program of the IUB. She earned her PhD from Universite de Lorraine, Nancy, France in 2012. Her worked is focused on the synthesis and characterization of Dye-sensitized solar cells.
Fluorescence SpectrophotometerWe have an Agilent Technologies Cary Eclipse Spectrophotometer which uses a Xenon flash lamp for superior sensitivity, high signal-to-noise, and fast kinetics. It can measure the emission of light from samples in four different modes. Using Xenon lamp technology, it captures a data point every 12.5 ms and scans at 24,000 nm/min without peak shifts. We use this for all applications in academia, life sciences, biotechnology, chemicals, energy and food testing analyses. A BioMelt package provides the capability of thermal denaturation studies.
