My research field or area of interest innanotechnology
- Synthesis of new materials such as high quality metallic, magnetic and semiconductor nanocrystls (size distribution less than 4% ) of different shapes (rods, spheres, hexagonal, and triangles, tetrapods, nanochain, & nanocubes), and modification of the surface properties by capping the particles with different polymers to functionalize them for different nanotechnological applications.
- Characterization of these nanocrystals using TEM, X-ray diffraction, UV-Visible Absorption, Florescence, Raman and Step-scan FTIR measurements.
- Studying the optical properties and the ultrafast optical dynamics of these particles and their dependence on size, shape, surface properties and the surrounding matrix using femto-second spectroscopic techniques such as pump-probe and femto-second up conversion techniques

Dear Dr Mona
A new marketing plan for Egypt Nanotech is to be established to match Nanopaprika platform. Tomorrow Nov 22nd I have a meeting with Dr Dahshan, Abu-Zaghla at 12 , will you be able to join us ?
Address in EAID , 22 Iraq st.
Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.
There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!
Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
