Dr. Mustafa Habib Chowdhury, Associate Professor at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE), School of Science, Engineering and Technology (SETS) and his research team consisting of undergraduate and graduate students of the EEE Department have published a peer-reviewed journal article “Using Plasmonic Metal Nanoparticles to Enhance Solar Cell Efficiency – Bangladesh Making Significant Progress in Renewable Energy Technology” in the Bangabandhu Chair Special Issue on “Energy, Disaster, Climate Change: Sustainability and Just Transitions in Bangladesh” of the International Energy Journal (IEJ) (Volume 20, Special Issue 3A, October 2020). One of the guest editors of the special issue was the renowned Professor Joyashree Roy who is the inaugural Bangabandhu Chair Professor at the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) in Thailand and a National Fellow of the Indian Council of Social Sciences Research. Professor Roy was among the network of scientists who shared in the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize awarded to the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change).
The Foreign Minister of the Government of People's Republic of Bangladesh, Dr. A.K. Abdul Momen, MP has written a letter of gratitude to express his thanks for this special issue. The findings reported in the papers published in the Bangabandhu Chair special issue (including the published article by Dr. Chowdhury and his research team at IUB) will be forwarded to policymakers in the government of Bangladesh to be used as a reference in implementing energy and environmental policies in the future. This is a significant academic achievement for the EEE Department, SETS and IUB.
The preparation of the article involved meticulous research work making it a considerable undertaking during the ongoing COIVD-19 pandemic. The endeavour was made possible due to the perseverance and dedication of Dr. Chowdhury and members of his research team at IUB, namely S.M. Nayeem Arefin, Shahriar Islam, Jawad Hasan, Mustafa Mohammad Shaky, and Fatema Fairooz.
