Sharif University of Technology

Moshfegh Research Group (NEST)
After receiving a first-class Ph.D. degree in Physics from the University of Houston, Texas (USA) in 1990 and two years as a postdoctoral researcher in the Texas Center for Superconductivity, Professor Moshfegh joined Sharif University of Technology (SUT) in 1992. After twenty years of activities on Experimental Physics on Surfaces, Interfaces, and Thin films, with particular application of Nanostructures on Solar Energy and Catalysis, he established a group called NEST at SUT in 2011. He was appointed as a distinguished professor of Physics at SUT in 2017.
NEST represents our group research activity on the following multidisciplinary fields, namely: Nano, Energy, Surface, and Thin films (NEST), with an emphasis on Solar Energy conversion and applications of efficient Nanostructures and 2D Materials, especially on Photoelectrocatalysis, including Photoelectrochemical Water Splitting, Photodegradation of Dyes/Drugs, and CO2 Reduction to valuable products. In addition, Hydrophilicity/Hydrophobicity of various Surfaces, Thermal/Electrical Conductivity of Polymers, and Supercapacitors are among the other NEST-intersted areas.
