Dr Jamil Akhtar started his career with BEL Ghaziabad as Planner-B from where he moved to CSIR-CEERI, Pilani in 1980 on CSIR Fellowship and later in 1983 was appointed as scientist for R&D in Semiconductor Devices and Technology. Dr Akhtar reached to the grade of Chief Scientist and established Flexible and Non-Silicon Electronics Group (FlexEANS@ceeri) in Smart Sensors Area of CSIR-CEERI, Pilani. He officiated as Director CSIR-CEERI Pilani intermittently. He was associated with AcSIR New Delhi as Professor and has coordinated Advanced Semiconductor Electronics Course. He has been instrumental in imparting Hands-on-Training in MEMS under NPMASS program to faculties from Engineering Institutions and Universities. His passion is to develop working prototypes. Dr Akhtar served as Adviser in P.T. Boards of UPSC New Delhi for Engineering Services.


His research capabilities include; technology for X and W-band silicon based IMPATTs and BARITTs, Numerical techniques for device simulation, Design and fabrication of Microstrip detectors, piezoresistive micro-sensors based on MEMS technology and MeV ion assisted techniques for nanostructure formation in single crystalline silicon. Silicon Carbide (SiC) technology for high energy particles has been established to be the first in the country. Ultrasonic Micromachining (USM) in MEMS, Ploysilicon by e-beam evaporation and Silicon nitride and oxides thin films by reactive co-sputtering are novel processes developed. Soft magnetic nano composites thin films and ferrite based devices for high frequency applications are additional activities.


He has academic interactions with prominent Indian Institutions and international Universities in countries like BINUS University, Jakarta, ITB Bandung, Tbilisi University Georgia, KIST Germany , SNRU, Russia and NUS and NTU Singapore..


He holds many patents to his credit and more than 200 papers in journals and conferences. He is a senior-member of IEEE, USA and member of International Solar Energy Society Freiburg Germany. He is honorary member of Chemical Society of Georgia. Technology on MEMS Sensor was recognized byDST-Lockheed Martin India-Innovation Growth Programme. He is an awardee of CSIR New Idea Fund Project, Bharat Shiksha Ratan by Global Society for Health and Education Growth New Delhi, Bharat Jyoti award by India International Friendship Society New Delhi.


Please join me in welcoming Prof. Jamil Akhtar in his new assignment as Director of School of Electrical, Electronics & Communication, MUJ. We wish him all the best.
