Gad and Birgit Rausing Library is a multi-disciplinary library serving the faculty, students, researchers, and staff of the university. It is providing qualityservices to its' patrons.
The SPIE Student Chapter at LUMS organised a webinar on May 12, where international guest speaker Dr. Ari Sihvola from Aalto University, Finland, spoke on ‘Electromagnetic emergence behaviour from metamaterials: how optical properties are dictated by material structure’. Also present were Dr. Muhammad Faryad (Chapter Advisor) and Wardah Mahmood (Society President).
Ari Sihvola is a Professor of electromagnetics at Aalto University School of Electrical Engineering with interest in electromagnetic theory, complex media and metamaterials, materials modelling, remote sensing, and radar applications. In the webinar he explained how optical properties are dictated by material meta structures and other related topics.
More than 70 faculty and students joined the webinar from different universities in Pakistan including LUMS, Quaid i Azam University, Information Technology University, Air University Islamabad, Comsats University (Islamabad and Lahore campus), as well as international participants.
The LUMS Physlab team, led by Dr. Mohammad Sabieh Anwar, Associate Professor at the Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering, has recently developed a single photon quantum mechanics laboratory. This lab is the first of its kind in Pakistan.
This initiative was taken in an effort to develop a laboratory that could incorporate modern, cost-effective versions of some of the experiments that have shaped the modern understanding of quantum physics. Students at Physlab were already working with Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices (SQUIDs), Franck-Hertz tubes and lasers, but the team wanted ideas that could directly relate to quantum interference, entanglement, density matrices, nonlocality and reveal the different aspects of quantum physics.
Dr. Anwar worked with Hamza Waseem and Faizan-e-Elahi, two electrical engineering students from University of Engineering and Technology (UET), Lahore, who wanted to experiment with single photons. The task was challenging as the students also had to complete rigorous coursework at their university. But after a year and a half of dedicated effort, the group of students managed to complete a suite of nine fundamental experiments. For more information click here.
