The Grandfather!

দাদু
মীর মাহাফুজ আলম

ষাট পেরিয়ে এখন আমি আশি,
দুষ্টু মেয়ের কথায় আমি বাসি।
ঝাকরা মাথা চুল হারিয়ে বুনো,
তোমার মতই মেয়ের দাদা শুনো।

বয়স হলো কচু পাতার জল,
এই শূন্য, এই পাবেনা তল।
দুষ্টু মেয়ে বক্র কেন হাসো,
দাদার মতই না হয় ভালোবাসো।

তোমার দিদা হয়নি যখন ছবি,
ভাবে যখন উঠতি আমি রবি।
ভেঙচি দিত তোমার মতই এমন,
রকমারী আর কত কি কেমন!

আজ বহদিন হারিয়েছে সে কোথা,
বুকের ভেতর অনেক খানি ব্যাথা।
হাসো দাদু, হাসো অবহেলে,
দু;খ, জ্বরা সব কিছু ভুলে!

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).

Ayesha Arefin Tumpa, worked in a team which invented artificial lung

According to the Global Gender gap report 2015, Bangladesh ranks 64th out of 145 countries with a score of 0.704 (0.00 = inequality, 1.00=Equality)* . This is the statistics which say lot about the gender situation of a country like Bangladesh. But a girl of this country still can contribute if they get proper opportunities and support. Let it be in the field of science and technology or any other sectors. Though this county has very few female scientists, some of them are doing really a brilliant job in the field of science and technology.

Ayesha Arefin Tumpa (Bengali: আয়েশা আরেফিন টুম্পা), is the name of such Bangladeshi girl who proved this again with her invention, artificial human lungs. She has invented this using Nano-technology as a part of combined team. According to her, she is grateful to the researchers of different countries particularly Momo Vuyisich of Montenegro working in Los Alamos of United States of America.

An American researcher, Chris Detter of Alamos National Laboratory, had discovered promising geneticist Tumpa in one of his trip to Bangladesh for research related work in 2011. She got the opportunity of studying in Los Alamos National Laboratory for higher studies and research with the exclusive collaboration by Detter and his colleague, Lance Green. She had been doing her PHD in University of New Mexico on nano-science. At the same time, she had been continuing her research in Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Tumpa began her career in the bio-security section at Los Alamos National laboratory. Then, a renowned Indian researcher and toxicologist, Rashi Iyer had appointed Tumpa in the lab for optogenix related research work. This is noteworthy that optogenix is the study of manipulating genetics and engineering proteins to control neuron activity in living tissue ”for prosthetic limb and artificial tissue development.

As we know, Nanoparticles is used in different products starting from sunscreens to solar panels, are proliferating so quickly that safety testing for potential health hazards can hardly keep-up. Tumpa and other member of Iyer’™s team are developing methods to improve testing of toxins and diseases and support bioethics, including replacing prevalent animal-testing methods with trials in artificial organs.

The team is creating an artificial human lung to reveal the cellular mechanisms in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease,”the third most common cause of death in America and support development of therapeutics. Arefin also researches neurological diseases and strokes.

In the same time, Tumpa engaged in doing research on various neurological diseases and blood-dripping in brain. In her education life in Bangladesh, She had attended in Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (SUST), where she received her undergraduate degree in Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology. Anyone can judge her more by one of her saying, as it says, “My goal is not just to do cool things; my goal is to do something helpful for other people”

Dr Hasan Shaheed, a Bangladeshi renowned scientist led a team which invents the first solar helicopter of the world and engaged with his next big thing, controllable capsule robot project

This is Dr. Hasan Shaheed (Bengali: ড.হাসান শহীদ), a Bangladeshi renowned scientist led a team along with Prof. Ante Munjiza which invents the first solar helicopter of the world and engaged with his next big thing, controllable capsule robot project.

The team was consisted of 7 students of Queen Marry university of England. Dr Hasan Shaheed is the Assistant professors of Queen marry university’s school of engineering. Another Bangladeshi, Sakir ahmed, was also in the team.

An Iraqi student, Ali abdai, was started research on solar helicopter in 2011 under Mr. Hasan. The model of the solar helicopter can fly without any problem, the speed too can be controlled; but this helicopter can not run with solar energy, required battery to run.  The team started working on this joined to overcome this problem.  The project of solar helicopter extended to continue in masters level. Another 6 students joined with him in the team and Professor Antonio Munjia also joined with them as assistance coordinator. The focus of the team was to run the helicopter with solar energy with three goals as light, durable, and energy-efficient. The solar run helicopter, named as solar-copter came into existence with a wight of just 1 kilogram. A solar simulator with the combination of halogen lamp was made to determine the flying capacity of the solar-copter. The four wings of the copter started moving after the operation was started with remote control. The solar copter fled up giving surprise to everyone. This is the story of the invention of the first solar copter in the world.

The outer look of solar copter is not our familiar appearance of helicopter. The familiar helicopter has two propeller-one of the top and one the tail or two in the top. But the solar-copter has 4 propellers in 4 corners in equal distance from the center which is known as quad rotor or quad-copter for getting the most solar energy from sun. The news of the solar copter circulated in technology based famous magazine of the world like Gijmag, design book. The world famous TV channel, Discovery, was telecast a report on solar-copter in their daily planet show.

The team members of the solar copter had worked on different aspects-Sakir Ahmed researched on the present condition of solar energy and the potentiality of solar cell to be used for solar copter. Kazimierz Wojewoda researched on size and structure. Jibs Ahmed researched on the materials to be used for solar copter; Aly Abidali worked on the creation of solar panel and other challenges.

Dr Hasan Shaheed was born at Hanua village of Bakerganj sub-district of Barisal district. He had completed secondary and higher secondary school certificate certification from Barisal Cadet College. Later he had completed his graduation as first class first from Dhaka University in applied physics from Electronic and communication engineering department. He had gone to Sheffield university of UK with commonwealth scholarship in September 1997. He researched on the controlling of the hand of robot. Later he completed his PHD degree from Sheffield university of United Kingdom (UK). He had joined in the Queen marry university as professor after completing his PHD in 2001. He is now researching in robotics and control in school of engineering and material science department as a senior professor. He was included in the list of top 100 most influential Bangladeshi (British Bangladeshi power and inspiration) residing in UK. His wife, Ms Mohsina Mahmuda Ferdous, is researching in genetic engineering in PHD level in Bronel University. The couple has as 5 years old daughter Nuyaima.

In 2007, a book, named as Alien: somvabona and Sondhan (Bengali: এলিয়েন: সম্ভাবনা ও সন্ধান) and in 2008, another book, named as, Mohabisser mohakash (Bengali: মহাবিস্ময়ের মহাকাশ) was published from samay prokason (Bengali: সময় প্রকাশন) in Bangladesh. Another book, Parallel Computing for Real-time Signal Processing and Control was published from Springer publisher of England as co-author along with another two authors, M Osman Tokhi, M. Alamgir Hossain. He is now busy with his next big thing, controllable capsule robot project which is already selected for innovation award of Queen’s marry university.

Uninterrupted network technology invented by a Bangladeshi girl, Mai Hassan, PhD student of University of British Columbia of Canada, can prevent cellular overload, dropped calls, unsent texts

The difficulties of sending phone or data during the time of natural disaster can be overcome easily from now onward. A PhD student of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of University of British Columbia (UBC), Canada, had invented a new technology to overcome the difficulties. All the people are making phone calls to know about their keens during the time of disaster altogether and face this kind of network problems. Moreover, most of the calls and messages are failed due to high pressure by more number of calls altogether by many peoples.

Mai Hassan, during a press release, said, “I proposed a more effective way to use any channel in the neighborhood, even if those channels are being used by radio or television stations“.

A special antenna was used in the new technology invented by Mai Hassan. This new technology with Smart antennas transmits signals directly toward the receiver’s direction and can steer the beam to any direction instead of sending signal to all direction through ordinary antenna used in available current technology. By manipulating the direction of the cellular signals, she was able to transmit calls and texts to a receiver while avoiding any interference with the original radio and televisions signals. As a result, this signal gets fewer obstacles by other signals.

The promising Bangladeshi inventor, Mai Hassan, had informed that she invented a method of reshaping and redirecting cellular signals over frequencies assigned to TV and radio broadcasts, without disrupting them. She explored ways of employing cell phones radio transmitting and receiving capabilities in situations where the networks are down or overloaded.

The challenge was to ensure that cellular calls redirect via TV and radio frequencies did not disrupt them. Mai Hassan found that using smart antennas instead of conventional ones allowed the cellular radio telephone signal to be aligned in one direction. Coupled with a change in shape of the cellular radio telephone signal, cellular calls could be made over TV and radio frequencies without generating or suffering from interference, according to her published research on the new proposed technology. As part of her research, she was able to transmit calls and texts to a receiver and avoid interference from radio and TV signals.

Her technology can be used during the time of concert and a game apart from disaster as the problems of network happens in this time too.  The technology based website, mashable.com, disclosed the invention.

Professors Jahangir Hossain, in the School of Engineering at UBC’s Okanagan campus, and Vijay Bhargava, in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UBC’s Vancouver campus, supervised her research. The following link can give more information on the invention-
