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.
