Workshop on Contemporary topics in Nano Magnetism held

Islamabad
A four-day workshop on ‘Contemporary topics in Nano Magnetism’ being organised by National Center for Physics (NCP) in collaboration with the Kohat University of Science and Technology (KUST) has started at NCP complex here Monday.
The workshop features a series of lectures by a renowned international expert Professor Wolfgang Kuch of the Freie University of Berlin, Germany who will discuss the recent developments both in the theoretical understanding and the applications of this exciting area of nanophysics. Prof. Kuch’s visit is supported by the DAAD exchange programme of the German Government.
Addressing at the inaugural ceremony, Dr. Ishfaq Ahmad (N.I, H.I, S.I) chairman of BoG of NCP and ex-chairman Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission said that major breakthroughs in field of nanotechnology are immensely changing the world. He emphasised the researchers and students to work hard in field of science & technology so that they can play important role in minimizing the scientific isolation of Pakistan and socio-economic uplift of country.
Dr. Hafeez Hoorani, director general of NCP believes that this multidisciplinary activity will instill new and innovative ideas among Pakistani researchers and will be beneficial to create linkages with industry. The format of the workshop will also allow local students and faculty to interact extensively with the experts to discuss their own research problems and develop new collaborations. Prior to this Dr. Fida Hussain Khattak, Vice Chancellor KUST said that NCP is playing its national role by facilitating physics community of Pakistan through organising national and international events.
Talking about the aims and objectives of the workshop Dr. S. K Hasanain, Director of this activity said that the lectures by the foreign and local experts will be delivered to develop the scientific base as well as providing exposure to the most recent international trends and experimental techniques of nano

magnetism.
The workshop will include over thirty oral presentations as well as poster presentations by students and research scientists from all over Pakistan, he added. Over one hundred faculty, researchers and students from Islamabad, Lahore, Karachi, Multan, Bahawalpur, Peshawar, Kohat, Muzaffarabad, Mardan etc are participating in the Workshop. Nano magnetism deals with the magnetic properties of materials at the nano scale, where the smallness of the size leads to a variety of new effects as well as new challenges in the ability to tailor materials to satisfy technological requirements.
Magnetic recording, sensor technology, permanent magnets and bio-medicine (targeted drug delivery, hyperthermia etc) are some of the many areas where this field has vast applications, many of which have already been realized. Within Pakistan there are a number of research groups at universities and other research institutions that are actively involved in research in this area.
