Prof. Khasan S. Karimov of GIK Institute receives US patents


  Sustainable economic growth relies on innovation, particularly for the developed nations with increasingly knowledge-based economies. A well-designed patent system encourages both the creation and spread of innovations. A patent is a set of exclusive rights granted by a sovereign state to an inventor or assignee for a limited period of time in exchange for detailed public disclosure of an invention. An invention is a solution to a specific technological problem and is a product or a process. Patents are a form of intellectual property. A patent gives you the right to stop others from copying, manufacturing, selling or importing your invention without your permission. You get protection for a pre-determined period, allowing you to keep competitors at bay. Prof. Khasan S. Karimov, Faculty of Electronic Engineering, Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology along with other researchers has received three outstanding patents from the USA in year, 2017. 1.       A.M.Asiri, S.B.Khan, M.T.S.Chani and Khasan S. Karimov, “Composition and method of making a strain sensor and its use”, Patent US 9,538,924 B1, Jan.10, 2017. Fabrication and characterization of flexible elastic heart strain sensors are performed in the form of a Wheatstone bridge are described. All arms of the bridge are nanocomposite based strain sensors. The silver selenidenanocomposite is especially developed by simple rubbing in method where the nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and Ag2 Se nanoparticles are embedded into a porous rubber. This is a low cost easy way to make strain sensor with excellent resistance to humidity and temperature. 2.       A.M.Asiri, S.B. Khan and Khasan S. Karimov, “Method of making flexible elastic conductive material and use of the same”, Patent US 9,631,989 B1, Apr. 25, 2017. The method of making a flexible elastic conductive material for strain sensor and resistance applications using rubbing-in technology. The thin rubber or any conductive material (substrates) is fixed at strain condition on the solid plate, by rubbing-in technology. Nanopowder of organic semiconductors, carbon nanotubes, copper doped tin oxide and manganese doped tin oxide at room temperature are embedded into the rubber conductive material to make built-instructure of conductive flexible elastic substrates that can be used for strain sensors , gages and resistance applications. The resultant product showed good sensitivity, stability and reliability during and after the rubbing-in operation. 3.       A.M.Asiri, S.B.Khan, M.T.S.Chani and Khasan S. Karimov, “Method of making and using flexible elastic nanotube composite”, Patent US 9847,151 B2, Dec.19, 2017. A method of fabricating and using of flexible elastic photo-thermoelectric or thermoelectric cells is being presented, where the thermoelectric materials have been used in pristine form. The casing of the cells is made up of flexible elastic materials (plastic, rubber). The casing may have different shapes as rod, semi- circular, wave-form, spiral etc, that makes them easy for practical applications and the thermoelectric cells based on carbon nano-tubes (CNT) and its blend with cobalt oxide/grapheen oxide nanohybrid have been made and tested. Rector GIK Institute, Engr. Jehangir Bashar lauded Prof. Khasan S. Karimov services and continued research work which would prove very valuable for strengthening the country industry. ...

GIK Computing faculty clinches Research Productivity Award 2017


Pakistan Council for Science and Technology (PCST) in collaboration with the Ministry of Science and Technology (MoST) has announced the final results of Research Productivity Award (RPA) 2017. The award is announced every year by the PCST for the articles published previous year in ISI-indexed impact factor journals of high repute, patents, books authored/edited, PhDs supervised, external research grants, and citations. This year a total of 2493 scientists/engineers applied for this prestigious award from all over Pakistan. A total of 252 (i.e., 10%) from the entire country were finally declared as RPA awardees based on the criteria/evaluation done by a high level committee comprising of top-notch scientists. The award recipients were categorized as A, B, C or D depending on their cumulative scores. This year Dr. Zahid Halim from GIK has received this prestigious award having a grand score of 7.43 and is assigned category D. It is worth mentioning that a major revision made by the RPA committee this year was to subject wise categorize the scientists. Where, only 7 computer scientists could achieve the award. GIK being one of them.    Details may be viewed at: http://pcst.org.pk/docs/PSP/FinalRPA2017.pdf ...
