 Suggested Citation   

For his pioneering work in theoretical, experimental and applied condensed matter physics, physical metallurgy and in renewable energies (including solar, wind and nuclear).

 Supporting  Statement

He made significant and major contributions both in experimental and theoretical aspects of mechanical properties of metals with emphasis on "thermodynamics and kinematics of slip systems, dislocations and its structures, work hardening, stress relaxation and yielding mechanisms, etc"; and for that he established theories on "Applications of Stochastic Processes in Crystal Plasticity". He worked experimentally on Electrical resistivity and Thermoelectric power of liquid quenched amorphous alloys, high temperature superconductors and other condensed matter materials; and developed working models for estimation of theoretical parameters.

         He supervised work on "Wind energy and its estimation", which involves theoretical modelling with applications of moment estimator, maximum likelihood estimator, maximum likeliness, velocity moment and other methods. He also supervised work on stochastic simulation of Weibull frequency distribution of wind speed in Pakistan and developed time series models such as ARMA (autoregressive moving average) and ARIMA (autoregressive information moving average) models to forecast wind speed and its frequencies and suggested techniques for suitable choice of wind machines including both wind mill for water pumping and wind turbines for electricity production. He applied all existing models on "Solar Energy Applications" and suggested for more theoretical and experimental work to intercept maximum heat energy with suitable engineering materials having maximum thermal diffusivity and minimum reflectivity so as to make solar heating and cooling systems compatible for local environment and with our own measuring standards in Pakistan; and with emphasis on scientifically innovated "architecture".

         He has to his credit more than hundred and fifty research papers published in journals of international repute. His most significant research work deals with physics of dislocations in metals.  He discoverd quantum length, modified relationships for stress relaxation and creep and work hardening mechanism for Peierls barrier in cubic metals by using single barrier stochastic models to crystal plasticity. He also applied stochastic simulation techniques to verify some theoretical and experimental results on dislocation-dislocation interactions in face-centered and body centered cubic crystals.

4. ICTP Programme.

Participated in ICTP activities

5. Remained as an associate of ICTP science 1984.

6. Resume of my association with ICTP: 

The ICTP matching grant with American Physical Society (APS) since 1984 helped me to share scientific endeavours with international community because I got all relevant research journals of APS well in time. Moreover, I received all the proceedings of ICTP activities, the books, the conference and workshop proceedings, etc., which helped my colleagues in their research endeavours. I had indeed the privilege to recommend my colleagues to visit and get benefit from expertise of visiting scientists from all over the world. The ICTP encouraged me and gave due accord to my recommendations for which I shall remain grateful to this institution as well as to all the directors of ICTP. May I record my profound indebtedness to Late Professor Abdus Salam, a noble laureate to encourage me for my work and he proved to be a mentor to all visiting scientists the third world countries. I have to my credit more than one hundred and thirty research papers all in foreign prestigious journals. This has become possible only due to lion’s share of ICTP to research activities. I have already established four experimental laboratories all in condensed matter physics.
