Interface Sciences / Catalysis
Abdullah Al-Mahboob is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Interface Science and Catalysis group. Under the direction of Dr. Peter Sutter, he is investigating the mechanism of reversible hydrogenation under the hydrogen storage project aiming to develop solid-state hydrogen storage system for future energy application. Dr. Al-Mahboob graduated from Jahangirnagar University, Bangladesh (M. Phil., Physics, 2002) and Tohoku University, Japan (Ph. D., Physics, 2007). In the study of his M. Phil. Degree, he synthesized bulk high-Tc cuprate superconductors (doped YBCO and BSCCO) by employing solid-state reaction methods and characterized by X-ray diffractometry and 4-probe transport measurements. His doctoral and subsequent studies of the organic molecular film growth at Tohoku University were performed by employing low energy electron microscope (LEEM) and complementary UHV-STM and DFT calculations. He has authored or co-authored 18 peer-reviewed journal articles (including PRL and Advanced Materials) and 2 book chapters in Springer Series.
