Dr. Jamal Uddin, the inventor of world’s most efficient Solar Energy cells

People of Bangladesh residing worldwide bring money, fame and even contributes to the world economy and development through their innovation and discovery. Such a name of a Bangladeshi Bengali is expatriate scientist, Mr. Jamal Uddin (Bengali: ড. জামালউদ্দিন).

This invention is very crucial for the world, especially for Bangladesh. As we know, as per the data of Bangladesh Govt, 55.26% people of Bangladesh have electricity and most importantly, 42.49% people of rural areas in Bangladesh have electricity.* This shows that the huge deficit of electricity in Bangladesh. Most importantly, lack of electricity creates space for kerosene. Maximum people of the off-grid areas have to rely on using kerosene lamp at night due to unavailability of on-grid electricity.

One statistics shows that the typical expenditure on kerosene is around 1 to 2% of the monthly incomes of Bangladeshi households. With 94% of this kerosene being consumed for lighting, the resulting expenditure on kerosene for lighting is approximately USD 0.36 billion.** This is huge indeed, so as to say!

The work of Mr. Jamal Uddin is also huge! He invented the world most efficient solar cell which has 43.4% of the solar cell renewable energy production capacity. He made new world record in this case by using meta physics, Kasmol software and PC One-D. His invention will create more opportunities for solar technology even impact on the lives of the people of the third world country and developed country.

Dr. Jamal has completed his Honour’s and Masters degree in chemistry from the University of Dhaka. He obtained his PhD degree from the University of Osaka, Japan.

He is currently working as an ‘Associate Professor’ at Coppin State University in Baltimore, Maryland of United States of America. And he is the researcher in Coppin State’s Center for Nano-technology. He is the resident of Hajiganj of Chandpur district. He is the son of late Abdul Jalil and Begum Fazilatunnesa.

He received Wilson H. Elkins Professorship, second year in a row. He is the recipient of the 2014 Wilson H. Elkins Professorship Award. Founder and director of Coppin State’s Center for Nano-technology, Dr. Jamal Uddin plans to use the funds to continue supporting Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (S.T.E.M.) research, especially solar research. This is redundant to say that the Wilson H. Elkins Professorship Award is the highest honor that the Board of Regents’ bestows to recognize exemplary faculty achievement.

Professor M. Zahid Hasan, the discoverer of mass less particle, Weyl fermion

This is the story of another proud Bangladeshi Bengali. This is about M. Zahid Hasan (Bengali: জাহিদ হাসান) who led A group of researchers of Princeton University in the United States which discovered the elusive massless quasi particle, Weyl fermion, predicted 85 years earlier. This is the unique innovation. This innovation will bring revolution in producing electronics goods for the next generation. This particle has incredible capacity to move inside the matter and anti-matter through crystal. This is noteworthy that Physicist and mathematician Hermann Weyl predicted the existence of Weyl fermions in 1929.

Zahid Hasan alias Taposh is the eldest of two sons and one daughter of Advocate Mohammad Rahman Ali and wife Nadira Ali Talukdar. Zahid has passed Secondary (SSC) from Dhanmondi Government Boys’ High School in 1986 and higher secondary(HSC) from Dhaka College in 1988. He stood second in the combined merit list in SSC and first in HSC.

He later studied at the University of Texas in Austin, United States of America. He has worked with physicist Professor Steven Weinberg, who had shared the Nobel Prize with Professor Mohammad Abdus Salam in 1979. He started working on experimental based physics with his interest. He had completed his masters and doctorate at Stanford University. After completing his studies at Princeton University, he joined as a ‘lecturer’ there in 2002. He became a ‘full professor’ in 2011. He is currently a professor of physics at the university.

He has another identity as a writer. Zahid published his first book on science, Aesho Dhumketur Rajjae (Bengali: এসো ধুমকেতুর রাজ্যে) which can read as ‘come to the World of Comets: An Astrophysics Primer’ at the age of just 16 in 1986.

In his personal life, he got married with Sarah, MIT-educated engineer, who works for Microsoft. They have two adorable children: Arik Ibrahim Hasan (13) and Sarina Maryam Hasan (11).

Ataul Karim, a Bangladeshi scientist, one among the best 100 scientists of the world, invented train which will not touch the line

The conventional idea of a train is that a train requires a line to touch to move forward. Dr. Ataul Karim (Bengali: ড. আতাউল করিম), a Bangladeshi origin scientist who stood in the list of the best 100 scientists of the world, invented train which will not touch the line. Train will run forward through magnets and reach to the destination within the blink of an eye. He is one of the world’s top 100 scientists.

Mr. Ataul Karim has been working in Dominion University at norophoke of Virginia adjacent to Washington DC as Vice President (Research) Washington DC.

However, the researchers of Old Dominion University had spent lot of money behind the research to invent this type of train past 7 years. But the real success came when Mr. Karim took the leadership of the research in 2004. Within just one and a half years, he was able to succeed in his research to invent the train which waits commercial launching.

China, Germany and Japan have discovered this type of train running over 150 miles per hour. But the average cost of the track of this train lines per mile is about $ 110 million. But the invention of Mr. Karim would cost only US$ 12 / 13 million. His design is pleasant. The main characteristic of the train is that it will not touch the line once after it is getting start.

Dr. Karim moved to United States (US) 30 years back with higher degree in Physics from the Dhaka University, Bangladesh. He had completed his MS in physics in 1978, and MS in Electrical engineering in 1979 and his PHD in 1981 in Electrical engineering from the University of Alabama. He is currently leading 5000 talented researchers-students of the World or US with his own talent and skill.

Dr. Karim is leading 6 college, at least 20 research centre, 600 faculties and more than 5000 graduate and under graduate students.

Uching Loyen, the first Rakhain teacher of any public university in Bangladesh

Uching Loyen (Bengali: উচিং লয়েন) became the first ever teacher of any public university from the Rakhain community in Bangladesh. He is from chatanaparaya of Taltoli sub-district in Barguna.

Uching developed the tendency to rank ‘first’ from the first standard and so he was able to study without any education fee from the 1st standard to Higher Secondary (HSC). He passed Secondary School (SSC) from Taltoli high school in 2005 and after two years, he passed Highser Secondary (HSC) from Taltoli Degree College with GPA-5 in both the exams. He received a scholarship from the Barisal board based on the results of HSC.

He was admitted in the newly opened ‘Tourism and Hospitality Management’ in 2007-2008 education year with the help of a distant uncle. Initially the address of the first batch student was in Jagannath Hall.He ranked 4th with first class in the under-graduation level. Consequently he ranked 2nd with the first class in the Master’s level.He has also been recently qualified for 34th BCS.

This brilliant student of the Faculty of Business Studies received ‘Deans Award’, ‘Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Memorial Trust education scholarship’.

On July 1st, 2015, he added his name in the history of Bangladesh when he got appointment as the lecturer of Dhaka University. He became the first ever ethnic Rakhain man who is the first ever Rakhain teacher in any public university in Bangladesh. He started his class on August, 2nd as lecturer.
