About Prof. Faramarz Hossein-Babaei

Faramarz Hossein-Babaei

Received the B.Sc. degree in electronic engineering from Amir-Kabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic), Iran, in 1971, and the M.Sc. degree in materials science and the Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the Imperial College, London, UK, in 1975 and 1978, respectively. He is Head of the Electronic Materials Laboratory (EML) and Professor of Electronic Materials at the Electrical Engineering Department, K. N. Toosi University of Technology, Tehran, Iran (since 1980), and has been Adjunct Professor at Materials Science and Engineering Department, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada from 2002-2007. He has founded a number of hi-tech spin-off companies mostly active in the field of high temperature materials and technology. His present research interests include electric heating, electroceramics, polycrystalline semiconductors, microfluidics, gas and humidity sensors, and artificial olfaction. Prof. Hossein-Babaei received the Khwarizmi International Award for his outstanding R and D work on high temperature systems in 2006.

Our Laboratory

Founded in 1981, Electronic Materials Laboratory (EML), was devoted to industrial research in electroceramics and electric heating. Form the year 2000, however, EML accepted postgraduate students and the work got blended with academic research. Presently, EML investigates two major fields of polycrystalline metal oxide semiconductors and artificial olfaction systems.
