NEST Group

After receiving a first class Ph.D. degree in Physics from University of Houston, Texas (USA) in 1990 and two years postdoc researcher in Texas Center for Superconductivity, Professor Moshfegh joined Sharif University of Technology in 1992. After twenty years activities on Experimental Physics on Surfaces, Interfaces and Thin Films with particular application of Nanostructures on Solar Energy and Catalysis, he has established a group called NEST in the Sharif University of Technology in 2011.

NEST represents our group activity on the following multidisciplinary fields namely: Nano, Energy, Surface and, Thin films with emphasis on Solar Energy conversion and applications of efficient nanostructured materials.
