Dr. Haider Butt


Haider obtained his BEng (hons) in Telecommunication Engineering from National University FAST, Pakistan (2007). He has a background in electromagnetic modelling of electronic devices using commercial software. During his MPhil research at the University of Cambridge (CMMPE) (2007) he worked on the modelling of electro-optical devices. Haider recently completed his PhD also at CMMPE, characterizing carbon nanotubes as optical antennas. His research objective is to use periodic arrays of carbon nanotubes for optical beam steering. This project is funded by Professor Gehan Amaratunga’s research grant. Haider was recently appointed to a lectureship in Micro Engineering and Nanotechnology at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Birmingham.
