Islam Khalaf, Egyptian Researcher, Awarded Medal for his Work in the Field of Electrical Conductivity
Dr. Islam Khalaf, the Egyptian Researcher who received his Ph.D. a little over a year ago, was awarded the medal of the Otto Hahn Prize for Chemistry and Physics in Germany. He was honored for his work in the field of electrical conductivity in topological waves.
Dr. Khalaf said that he used the laws of quantum mechanics to understand topological materials. He is sure that his research will develop electronics in the future by using topological wires to increase the speed of processing in computers.
The ceremony was held by Max Planck Institute for Physics in the city of Heidelberg, Germany. The ceremony included many researchers and leaders such as Anja Karliczek, the German Minister of Education and Scientific Research.
Dr. Islam Khalaf is a GUC graduate, class of 2010. He then went on to get his Master’s Degree and Ph.D. from the Max Planck Institute.
Although this was a marvelous achievement, since Dr. Khalaf is only the 8th person to receive such medal, he is unbelievably underrated. If you try googling ‘Islam Khalaf’, you will find close to nothing about him. Now, it has only been one day since his honoring, but it is predicted that he will remain unrecognized as many Achieving Arabs before him.
