LUMS gets Rs 20 million


The Spin Physics Group of Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) headed by Dr Sabieh Anwar has managed to draw 20 millions as a funding from Higher Education Commission (HEC). According to the LUMS, Dr Sabieh, Chair Department of Physics, is the in-charge for the research project. The three-year funding will allow him to establish some key experimental facilities, notably atomic layer deposition by sputtering and a high-end pulsed laser for time-dependent optical studies. The project will contribute to the development of new avenues in magnetic landscape mapping, magnetic microscopes, and magnetic resonance at the nano-scale.
