Faculty Profile

Dr. Muhammad Sabieh Anwar

Associate Professor

Department Of Physics

Muhammad Sabieh Anwar completed his D.Phil. from the Department of Physics, Oxford University (UK) in 2004, where he studied as a Rhodes Scholar from Pakistan. His dissertation was titled, “Quantum Information Processing using Para-Hydrogen NMR” and revolved around the preparation of pure quantum states for quantum computing. This work also constituted the first demonstration of quantum entanglement in the liquid state.

His post-doctoral experience at the University of California, Berkeley (USA) involved the demonstration of hyperpolarized NMR using heterogeneous catalytic systems, microfluidic and “lab-on-a-chip” NMR, synthesis of precise magnetic fields for ex-situ NMR, algorithmic cooling, polarization lifetime studies and hypersensitive nanoparticle MRI.

Prior to his doctoral studies, Sabieh received his B.Sc. (Honours) degree in electrical engineering (electronics and communications) from the UET, Lahore.

Sabieh’s current research interests include quantum control, spin mechanisms in nanomagnetic materials, nanotechnology, spintronics, magnetic resonance and physics education.

His research has been published in various journals notably the Science, Proceedings of the National Academy of Science (PNAS), Physical Review Letters, A and B, Chemical Physics Letters, Analytical Chemistry, Journal of the American Chemical Society, Angewandte Chemie, Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry, Daltons Transactions and the American Journal of Physics.

He has also taught at the Punjab University, UET (Lahore), National Centre for Physics (Islamabad) and the COMSATS Department of Physics (Islamabad) and has been an active speaker at many national and international physics / chemistry forums.

Dr. Sabieh is also the Joint Secretary and one of the founders of the Khwarizmi Science Society– a non-profit organization aiming at developing a science culture in Lahore’s educational institutions. This Association has organized about 200 events of different kinds with the objective of strengthening the popular image of the scientific content and method.

Dr. Sabieh is recipient of ICTP Physics Prize for the year 2008 as well as Aizaz-e-Sabqat from the Government of Pakistan.
