ESAB AIUB Unit Face organized a webinar titled "Gas Sensing and Capturing Based on Two-Dimensional Layered Materials" on Saturday, 5th June 2021. The purpose of this webinar was to spread the concept of nanotechnology and it’s various research areas. Gas Sensing and Capture based on 2-D layered materials, was the topic of discussion. The webinar commenced at 08:00 PM with around 80 participants attending via the virtual platform, Google Meet.
National anthem of Bangladesh followed by a brief promo video focusing on ESAB's mission, vision and activities were displayed at the beginning of the event. Prof. Dr. ABM Siddique Hossain (Dean, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB) inaugurated the webinar by praising nanotechnology innovation's and it’s sudden burst in the research scenario and growing prevalence throughout the world. Dr. Hossain emphasized that research in these fields would certainly be the next big impact in the advancement of technology and ended his speech by urging the students to do study and use the wide field of nanotechnology for the greater good of the planet.
Then the event commenced with the speaker Dr. Kazi Hanium Maria (Associate Professor, Department of Physics, University of Dhaka) started with the basic overview of Nanotechnology at around. She briefly explained the Gas Sensing and Capture based layered materials, how research has unfolded over the years and the scope of her findings for the gas sensing and capturing technology using layered 2-D materials, explaining in detail explaining its full use and its effectiveness and limitations. Afterward, Dr. Sajid Muhaimin Choudhury (Assistant Professor, Dept. of EEE, BUET), Dr Mainul Hossain (Assistant Professor, Dept. of EEE, University of Dhaka) and Dr. Md. Mahbub Rabbani (Associate Professor, Dept. of Chemistry, AIUB) also took part in the discussion session with Dr. Maria, and answered question in Q/A session, where the questions were asked from the participants.
Finally, the webinar ended with a closing remark from Mr. Tawsif Ibne Alam (Assistant Professor, Dept. of EEE, AIUB) thanking everyone for their participation, the organizing team of ESAB AIUB Unit Face for their continuous effort in organizing informative seminars and also thanked the speakers for their time and effort in dissemination of research information and a lively question and answer session.
