Dr. Fazal Ghafoor received his Ph. D from the Department of Electronics, Quid-i-Azam
University, Islamabad under the supervision of Prof. M. Suhail Zubairy (S.I. &
H.I.) in 2002. The main topic of his PhD thesis was “Amplitude and phase control
of spontaneous emission”. He is working in the theoretical quantum optics and his
main areas of research are spontaneous emission spectrum, sub-wavelength atom localization,
quantum teleportation and quantum entanglement. Before joining the Centre for Quantum
Physics, COMSATS Institute of Information Technology he was working as a lecturer
at the University of Malakand NWFP.
Dr. Faheel A. Hashmi
Dr. Faheel Hashmi received his PhD degree from Université de Toulouse III in year
2009 in the supervision of Prof. Aziz Bouchene. His dissertation title was “Propagation
effects in atomic systems for long and short pulse regimes: Control of the optical
response”. He is working in the field of theoretical quantum optics and is interested
in propagation effects experienced by light pulses in atomic media, slow fast and
backward propagating light, non-adiabatic optical transitions, wave shaping, and
control of optical response. Before joining the Center he was serving the Punjab
University Lahore as Assistant Professor.
Dr. Manzoor Ikram
Dr. Manzoor Ikram
received his PhD degree under the supervision of Prof. M. Suhail Zubairy (S.I. &
H.I.) from the Department of Electronics, Quaid-i-Azam University Islamabad, in
2001. He is working in the field of theoretical Quantum Optics and his main area
of research is “Quantum Information” that includes entanglement engineering and
its dynamics in dissipative environments. Before joining the Centre for Quantum
Physics as Associate Professor, he served National Institute of Laser and Optronics
(NILOP) and PINSTECH for 18 years. He served as Associate Director of the Centre
for Quantum Physics for the period 2007-09.
Dr. Ashfaq Hussain Khosa
Dr. Ashfaq Hussain Khosa received his PhD in 2006 under the supervision
of Prof. M. Suhail Zubairy (S.I. & H.I.). The main topic of his PhD thesis was
“Quantum State Measurement”. Before joining Centre for Quantum Physics he was working
as a Senior Scientist in Optics Laboratories, where he worked on developing/analyzing
lasers and optical systems.
Currently, his research interests include, engineering
entanglements in cavity QED systems, decay rate of exited atoms in dielectric media
and entanglement dynamics.
Dr. Sajid Qamar
Director, Centre for Quantum Physics
