Dr. Muhammad Shahid Anwar, Ph.D (Physics)

Description :
Dr. Mohd. Shahid Anwar graduated with a Bachelor degree in Electronics (1999) and Masters (M.Sc.) in Physics (2001) from St. Aloysius College, Jabalpur. Later he joined UGC-DAE- CSR Indore as JRF/SRF for a DST sponsored project which leads to his doctoral work. He obtained his Ph.D. degree from Devi Ahilya University, Indore in 2008 for thesis entitled “Structural and dielectrics studies on some perovskites based oxide” He also received state level award of M. P. Young Scientist award for the work he carried out during his Ph.D. He is recognized for his space group analysis work via Electron microscopy in which he had assigned correct space group to Sr-Ca-TiO3 perovskite system. He joined CSIR-CECRI Karaikudi as Scientist in Feb 2008 and later he joins CSIR-IMMT Bhubaneswar on 2011 on transfer. His area of interests include Electron Microscopy, Ferroelectrics, Multiferroic, Fuel cell, thermoelectric materials, metallic thin films, etc. Dr. Anwar has published over 60 SCI journals paper in multidisciplinary areas.

  • Development of cost effective and non toxic thermoelectric material and module .
  • Development of Hard and super hard nano composite coatings.
  • Relaxor Ferroelectrics: A new lead free ferroelectric relaxor ceramics has been found in Hf doped BaTIO3 (i.e. BaTi1-xHfxO3) ceramics. Crossover from normal to relaxor behaviour has been characterized and shown as an efficient candidate for industrial usage. Established novel technique to characterize relaxors.
  • Electron microscopy: Resolved the existing controversies of space-group in SrCaTiO3 ceramics, at different Ca concentration level. Initially various space groups e.g. Pnma (Pbnm), I4/mcm, Imma, P21/m, Cmcm were reported. On the basis of XRD, Electron microscopic and TEM simulation data above listed space groups has been tested thoroughly and finally Pnma space group has been assigned along with a new feasible space group P21212 as a minor phase. Phase coexistence studies are under progress.
  • Current research activities are focused on thermoelectric materials, Proton conducting fuel cell (PCFC), Metallic Thin film & Hard coating, etc.
