Nabila Makram Minister of State of Immigration and Egyptian Expatriates Affairs congratulated, during a phone call, the Egyptian scientist Mohamed Tharwat Hassan, a professor in the Department of Physics and Lasers at the University of Arizona in the United States, for his scientific brilliance, which placed him among the list of the most prominent scientists abroad.
Makram praised the research efforts of the scientist, praising the efforts of Egypt’s scholars and experts abroad in various fields.
The minister added that Tharwat’s quest to monitor the movement of molecules during the “Atothanism” confirms that our scientists are able to excel in all research fields to help serve humanity
On his part, the Egyptian scientist explained that he is close to completing a research project that seeks to develop the microscope camera to become 1,000 times faster than before, to monitor the movement of molecules within different materials in the time of the attosecond, which is a timescale a thousand times faster than the femtosecond. .
Tharwat added that he was able to develop a laser device that produces light pulses that control insulating materials, such as glass, and make them conduct electricity.
Tharwat stressed that his findings will increase the speed of electronic devices such as computers and mobile phones 100 million times, which will make a breakthrough in the transmission of information and communication between distant places, and we may be able to quickly communicate between Earth and spacecraft hundreds of thousands of miles away very quickly, Which contributes to an unprecedented leap into the future.
Tharwat received his Ph.D. from the Max Planck Institute in Germany, and his research culminated in winning the American Keck Prize in Science and Technology – on his own – to support his research with a financial value of $1.1 million, an award given to leading researchers in their field in the US.
An attosecond is a billionth of a billionth of a second (18-^10 of a second). The time difference between attoseconds and one second is the same time difference between one second and millions of years for the life of the globe.
