Prof. AslamWelcome to the homepage of the Dr. Mohammed Aslam's Group at the Department of Physics, IIT Bombay. Dr. Mohammed Aslam is an Assistant Professor of Department of Physics, and is affiliated with the Centre for Research in Nanotechnology & Science (CRNTS) at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay). Prior to joining IIT Bombay in January 2008, Aslam was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Materials Science and Engineering Department of Northwestern University. Dr M. Aslam received a M.Sc. in Physics with specialization in Materials Science from Pune University, in 1996 and a PhD in Physics from the National Chemical Laboratory affiliated to Pune University in 2004 where he held the Research Fellowship from CSIR, India.

His expertise is in designing materials and particles at the nanoscale (metal and functional oxides) in order to design new electronic, optoelectronic and nanodevice application. As a postdoctoral fellow he explored a completely new venture of research in designing and development of Magnetic Nanomaterials as detection/therapeutic agent, and functional oxide materials for sensing and biosensing applications. He has trained undergraduate and high school students and for his contribution, IMSA, Illinois (USA) rewarded him 'Mentorship' award for developing Young scientist.

Dr. Aslam's teaching interests include nanomaterials science courses taken by students from across the institute, and core physics courses taken by all institute undergraduates. Currently he is working on sponsored projects by CSIR, and IRCC, IITBombay (Seed-grant). He has contributed to 38 peer-reviewed publications including two review chapters during his research tenure so far. To his credit, he also has a US patent and 4 Indian patents.
